Adam became a carer after his grandpa was hospitalised due to a fall in his home. Unable to reduce his full-time work, Adam turned to technology, but found existing tech-based solutions did not meet his family’s needs. This drove him to build his own and to found Umps Health, with the goal of empowering independence for older Australians. / Adam’s background is at the intersection of technology and public health. One of his earliest roles was at Cochlear in China, where he worked with regional governments and private clinics to make cochlear implantation more accessible to regional and remote communities. Prior to founding Umps Health, he worked for Ericsson where he led the development of digital transformation projects that leveraged the Internet of Things and AI to create more liveable and accessible cities. / Adam has a deep understanding of Australia's health, aged care and disability systems and believes that in order to transform these sectors, innovation needs to be applied in the context of the prevailing ecosystem. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce and Masters of Public Health from the University of Melbourne.
