As an IT start-up, Draper University is on the visit-list of WaCare’s journey in California. Draper University is founded by Tim Draper who is a famous investor for investing several international enterprises, such as Yahoo, Skype and Baidu etc. in Silicon Valley. He chooses to establish his institute in San Mateo, the center of Silicon Valley. Draper University is quite different from the traditional ones for it only provides the courses from 6 to 10 weeks. The schedule is arranged based on individual’s needs, so the lecture core changes every week. Students in Draper University need to pass various obstacles, take the famous Survival Week as an example, which is a 5-day outdoor activity that implies many uncertain events might occur, so the teamwork and flexibility are very important. Another precious opportunity in Draper University is the Pitch Day in the final week. Students must be fully prepared to present from the prototype to the doable business mode to attract VC to support their business.
The start-up in Taiwan can not only apply the loan from government, but also seek other institutes’ assistance, such as Taiwan Innovation & Technology Arena, AAMA Taipei and Taidah Entrepreneurship Center. WaCare meets some Taiwan start-up team in Draper University, and we notice that we all believe that “You’ll never know if you don’t give it a shot, and the worst outcome is back to the start, so actually you have nothing to lose” after having a word with them.
WaCare receives lots of positive feedback in AI EXPO North America, and we believe that the technology of A.I. and big data will allow healthcare to be more effective. It’s a mutual benefit for healthcare facilities and public because individual could improve the self-health management, and the healthcare institutes could integrate more resources through technology.
WaCare integrates social network and A.I. engine to deploy health promotion and preventive medicine. More than that, WaCare creates a platform to connect public and health experts which means that the obstacle of geographical boundary is literally vanished. This innovative strategy of health promotion allures many countries want to work with WaCare, for example, Japan, Vietnam, India, South Africa, Mexico and Colombia. Especially the medical teams of India and South Africa strongly express their will to cooperate with WaCare as an integrated tool for case management of postsurgery and after hospital.
WaCare-My Health Social Network let the globe see the unlimited possibilities of technology in the field of healthcare. WaCare will keep you posting!
WaCare visits Silicon Valley Adult Day Health Care Center which is made for elder daycare. California government is very strict with Healthcare Center from the infrastructure to professional employees. The space and circulation of building is very important, especially for aged people. Another crucial element for a good Healthcare Center is the amount of health professionals which contains registered nurse, dietitian, physiatrist and counseling psychologist etc. The more completed equipment and service that Healthcare Center provides, the better caring quality that elders could have.
In nowadays, the United States faces the aging population and massive amount of healthcare cost, the budget of latter one equals 17% of GDP which means that Healthcare Center is considered as a significant part in the long-term care plan. Healthcare Center provides two functions, a proper healthcare to prevent disease and reduce the burden of children that is quite similar with the Healthcare Center in Taiwan.
Taiwan government continuously develops neighborhood mutual care to practice preventive medicine for the elders. WaCare- My Health Social Network is very suitable to connect the aged and their offspring. When WaCare A.I. detects the potential health risk, the members of caring network would receive the notification immediately, then they can look for the suitable health professionals to seek advice. WaCare is also considered as an integrated app for long-term care case management by collecting and processing Personal Health Record (PHR). The related healthcare professionals could manage their cases more effectively, in the meantime, the saved budget could be devoted into other important projects.

WaCare’s online health education service can not only reduce the medical cost, but also resolve people’s health problems 24/7. WaCare visits Taiwanese American Chamber of Commerce-Northern California (TACCNC) during our journey in the States to understand local citizens’ needs.
TACCNC was established in 1988 by the Taiwanese professionals who came from varied fields, such as technology, law, business, accounting and manufacturing. The main purpose is to improve the commercial development and satisfy the needs of service for the Taiwanese who live in Northern California.
During this event, WaCare is delighted to meet the local health professionals and other start-up teams in blockchain and education. The four main speakers whom are invited by TACCNC share their personal experiences of starting a new business. For example, how the VC values anew start-up and the moves that Taiwanese start-up should adjust to attract international market’s attention. The most important issues are that start-ups should know what kind of financial statements they want and the obstacles that nearly every start-up would face.
WaCare believes the preventive medicine is one crucial solution for the Aging Society in the very short future, therefore we deploy social network to attract family and friends to conduct actively care then improve the user’s health condition. In the meantime, the A.I. engine will predict the potential health risk. WaCare also provides the platform to connect health experts and public. We are doing our best to speed up the progress, so the citizens of North American will have the high-quality medical service from Taiwanese health professionals in the near future.
