The HealthXL story starts with a simple idea; that healthcare could be fundamentally improved by using information and technology in new ways. Other industries have been transformed by digital change why not healthcare?
We started our journey by bringing together passionate innovators with investors and industry leaders to understand why healthcare was different. As we engaged these groups it became clear we had a major challenge of misalignment and misunderstanding. We found huge gaps between what consumers needed and what providers, payors, industry were building.
Stepping back, it became clear that the explosion of data and technology had in fact led to information overload and widespread confusion about who and what to trust. We cannot make good decisions on how to adopt new technologies without reliable data, evidence and insights.
Our moment of clarity occurred in Melbourne, Australia. In a conversation Kwang Lim, a practicing geriatrician we stumbled on a simple but killer idea:
What if we could create.....A global community of experts. An active community using a common dataset to share intelligence based on common commercial interests. A community who work together to meet the needs of not just the patient but all the stakeholders. In short a community intelligence platform for healthcare and digital health
Since this moment our journey has focused on bringing the data and people together to create a collective intelligence at scale.
Our vision is to become the one true source for intelligence on digital health.
We set out to build this vision in partnership with our clients including Abbott, Bayer, Bupa, BMS, Guidewell, IBM, ICHP, Merck, Partners Healthcare, Pifzer, Novartis, Roche and other key stakeholders, whom we have been working with since 2014
Working in tandem with them, we started to build a platform for decision makers to aggregate millions of data-points with insight and experience to capture the full commercial potential of digital health.
