Healthbox, the professional services firm empowering the innovation
strategies of healthcare organizations, announced today the launch of
Healthbox Horizon Scan. Horizon Scan is a sourcing tool that provides
healthcare organizations with a platform to find and evaluate innovative
digital health solutions.
"With a myriad of vendors in the market, organizations face challenges
in finding the technologies best fit to advance strategic and
operational initiatives," said Neil Patel, Healthbox President. "Horizon
Scan will help teams successfully navigate the digital heath landscape
with added confidence and speed."
Many healthcare organizations are currently faced with tenuous profit
margins and an uncertain regulatory landscape while attempting to
transition toward value based care. Implementing the right digital
health solutions can help address these challenges and improve the cost
and quality of healthcare overall. While organizations recognize the
need to innovate, they find it difficult to filter through the thousands
of solutions on the market and vet the best products in a timely and
efficient manner. The process is cumbersome for both parties; vendors
with high impact solutions can quickly lose tractio without brand
validation and prolong the already lengthy sales cycle.
"Getting the introduction to the right group of people within a hospital
is key," said John Hui, co-founder of early stage company Twiage and
angel investor. "The lower the communication barrier the better."
Based on conversations with healthcare systems across the country,
Healthbox recognized the need for a curated and objective platform to
enable confident decision-making. Horizon Scan will provide users direct
access to Healthbox expertise, leveraging the company's experience
evaluating thousands of early stage companies for accelerator programs,
investment decisions, and sourcing vendor solutions on behalf of
industry partners. The platform features company profiles on vetted
solutions, comprehensive industry reports, and a community network to
engage with other users and the Healthbox team.
Organizations can contact Healthbox at email@example.com
to request a demo and free trial of the new service.
