Why and How Partnerships in Digital Health are Critical, Valuable

May 29, 2018

Welldoc’s clin­i­cal thought lead­ers dis­cuss the val­ue of part­ner­ships to achieve suc­cess with a dig­i­tal health ther­a­peu­tic. They note, to achieve wide­spread adop­tion and max­i­mize poten­tial in the health­care are­na and mar­ket­place, it’s crit­i­cal to iden­ti­fy and build nov­el part­ner­ships. In the trans­for­ma­tion of health­care deliv­ery, valu­able part­ner­ships may be ini­ti­at­ed with dig­i­tal health and con­di­tion-spe­cif­ic thought lead­ers. Oth­er part­ner­ships may be devel­oped with busi­ness or pro­fes­sion­al asso­ci­a­tions, relat­ed or non-relat­ed busi­ness enti­ties. Each part­ner­ship should offer oppor­tu­ni­ties for the part­ners to build on their strengths and lever­age their key audi­ences. Work­ing in tan­dem and with non-tra­di­tion­al part­ners enables enti­ties to move the nee­dle faster, fur­ther to achieve mutu­al goals.
