Healthbox has launched Horizon Scan, a sourcing tool that provides healthcare organizations with a platform to find and evaluate innovative digital health solutions. In other words, the service will help the established players in the healthcare industry find the right digital health partners.
“With a myriad of vendors in the market, organizations face challenges in finding the technologies best fit to advance strategic and operational initiatives,” Neil Patel, Healthbox President, said in a statement. “Horizon Scan will help teams successfully navigate the digital heath landscape with added confidence and speed.”
Today healthcare organizations are faced with tenuous profit margins and an uncertain regulatory landscape while attempting to transition toward value based care. Digital health solutions can help but with new services popping up like mushrooms, it’s getting tougher and tougher to select the best solution for any particular healthcare organization.
On the other hand, vendors with high impact solutions can quickly lose traction 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.”
Healthbox talked with healthcare systems across the country and has found the need for a curated and objective platform to enable confident decision-making. To that end, Horizon Scan will provide users with direct access to Healthbox expertise, featuring company profiles on vetted solutions, industry reports, and a community network to engage with other users and the Healthbox team.
Horizon Scan is not open for everyone; organizations interested to try it out can contact Healthbox at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a demo and free trial of the service.
