Summary

Summary: 
A company based in Greece has developed an innovative medical ecosystem that supports collaboration, better decision-making, the provision of added-value services and easier access to medical discoveries through rich data, research and education. The ecosystem was successfully launched recently in the Greek market and in 7 other countries as a freemium service with > 3400 users engaged. The company seeks UK-based firms to jointly launch the platform in the UK under a joint venture agreement.

Description

Description: 

Digital technologies can help structure new care delivery models, where healthcare stakeholders — providers, governments, payers, consumers, and other companies — can build a sustainable foundation for affordable, accessible, high-quality health care. These new models should aim for overall health management and collaboration among different stakeholders in the connected ecosystem for precision in diagnosis and medication delivery and for an improved patient experience. The medical ecosystem aligns different vendors and domains and provides digital technologies and services to support medical and clinically related activities within the healthcare continuum, right at the Point of Care, where patients and healthcare professionals interact. In the medical ecosystem, digital technologies coexist with information sharing, social networks and AI so that better care can be delivered to more people, in an efficient and timely manner.

In a freemium ecosystem, where social forces enable multiple-level interaction among different types of collaborators, practical digital tools for healthcare professionals (e.g. posting video cases, 2nd opinion analysis tools, image transfer, viewing tools, e-consultation, etc.) support medical services at reduced costs and time. Within the last 3 months of operation a significant number of end users (healthcare professionals and citizens) have registered for, and are using, the ecosystem. Currently, there is no single organization functioning as a complete healthcare ecosystem, providing digital healthcare services. There are over 50 organizations / businesses (traditional health-related scientific and social networks and systems) with annual revenues >$2m, whose services vary among directories, social networks, scientific indexes and healthcare medical plans. An opportunity has been identified for such an ecosystem in the UK market. The Greek company is seeking established partners in the UK’s healthcare sector that could adapt the medical ecosystem to the UK market through a joint venture agreement.
