We involve important stakeholders, potential new partners, including of the “unholy” alliance type, and your end-user....yes, also if that’s a patient.
Digital solution landscapes and deep-dives
We are experts in painting landscapes of the scientific, clinical, technology and/or business model “state of the art” around a pre-defined topic, typically a disease or technology segment. Hereto we scout worldwide, across all domains, to uncover the newest data, insights and emerging startups. The output of such project is often the first step in the design of a digital pipeline or digital companion concept.
We help you select the most promising (combination of) read-outs and go in on those deeper: researching the market space, performing a maturity analyses at the level of technology and company, rank them accordingly and help you engage with potential partners.
Concepts and prototypes for digital companions
We conceive, prototype and validate the healthcare solutions of tomorrow: digital solutions & experiences that unlock data across different fields, domains and industries, both public and proprietary in nature. We blend in technology, design, delight and business model innovation as key ingredients and enablers.
In our experience, most companies hardly realize what types of data they could collect, how to collect, when to trust. Healthskouts is bringing data to the table you’ve never considered of value, we facilitate access to the sensors that capture that data, we design the digital health tools that enabling leveraging these data in a health related context for the first time ever. We leverage real-world data for real-world impact and value.
With such “digital companion” you, as our client, can deliver to your organization and/or clients what they didn't realize possible. Obtain trust and loyalty by offering unprecedented service levels, far beyond your current products and services.
Fuel for digital companions
We are a preferred partner to fuel newly-implemented or existing digital platforms, solutions and experiences with a continuous flow of data-to-insights, correlated with and enriched by the latest relevant scientific, clinical and technological findings.
For you as a company, this means you have a continuous, human-curated inflow of leads for additional data points and functionalities, keeping your platform, solution or experience cutting-edge and future-proof.
For your end-users, we provide, via e.g. a SaaS-type model, a constant feed of insights based on the data they agree to share, creating returns that exceed expectations and provide excellent value-for-data.
A deep dive into technology to help identify …
<your task here>
For a top 10 pharma company we have delivered a comprehensive Deep dive into the maturity of digital biomarkers, remote monitoring and smart medication / adherence tools. The company currently investigates how to dynamically deploy this company- and even pharma ecosystem-wide. For another company we did a similar analysis, but focused on very early stage approaches only, sometimes still academic lab based.
