We’re on a roll!
The past few weeks have been filled with strategy meetings, VC pitches, and huge collaboration agreements. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing – since starting our venture, we had some bad ideas, some really bad pitches, and some fairly epic fails, but at the end of the day, we wouldn’t trade this for anything…. except for maybe a start-up with fewer potholes.
Flagler Health is growing! Boston Scientific and Camber Spine have seen the light and partnered with us. They’ll be using our tool to help their physicians improve patient care and make their clinic data just a wee bit more usable.
They Like Us, They Really Like Us!
Accomplishments and Battle Scars:
We started this quarter strong with two new corporate partnerships: Boston Scientific and Camber Spine. Both have connected us to two of their clients to launch our Beta in their physician offices.
Why are they partnering with us, a small startup? Well, MedTech has had a bit of trouble figuring out how to help physicians keep their treatments top of mind without being overly intrusive. Flagler not only helps physicians identify potential procedure candidates but also helps MedTech companies improve their physician education process.
Oh annnnd we are engaging with two large health systems to optimize their physician workflow and improve patient care through procedure matching. More on that in the next newsletter…
Our Beta is complete! Our design is summed up in one word: simplicity.
We’ve been wrestling between getting our MVP launch ready and making it as close to perfect as possible. After 3 months we’ve landed somewhere in the middle and have now produced something we are comfortable going live with. Here’s a gander at what we’ve got going:
It’s not all roses though, we had to overcome some serious challenges. Mainly, working with last-generation health IT infrastructure. Healthcare tech has been stuck in the 1990s for quite some time and is in major need of upgrades.
Remember Nudges? Science Agrees!
We chose nudging for a reason. Check out this article on how nudge notifications can improve healthcare delivery without increasing costs or disrupting clinic flow:
