Jim Mangione and his team focus on identifying new startups and product innovations that can positively impact patient health or have the potential to disrupt how things have conventionally been done in the healthcare industry. To that end, they maintain a repository of thousands of startups and run live, interactive events throughout the year. Among the tasks that fall under Mangione’s purview: exploration of the convergence of connected home and health through the internet of things and the development of VR and mixed-reality experiences.

Mangione has also played a leading role in the evolution of Pfizer’s mobile development platform and technology strategy. He has forged relationships across business lines to provide direction to groups building applications.

Before his 20-year stint at Pfizer, he held various roles at Merck, Isavix and CareScience.
