Medicover launches Health Innovators. Takes another step towards innovation.

Published

Medicover has launched a unit dedicated to healthcare innovation and collaboration with startups – Health Innovators by Medicover. It is a team whose mission is to implement innovative medical projects. As part of the project the company wants to build a community of innovators - made up of startups, patients and employees - and thus speed up the implementation of new solutions.

Currently, Medicover is one of the most experienced medical operators when it comes to collaborating with startups.

Health Innovators is another step towards speeding up innovation. As part of the project we want to build a startup community to help us better test, find, and implement new solutions. In managing the innovation process, both external specialists and innovators are key, as well as our staff and medical personnel, who get a lot of ideas from their daily work.

John Stubbington, CEO of Medicover Healthcare Services

Through the Health Innovators website, it is possible to submit ideas, test newest solutions, and join a crowdsourcing platform through which you can vote on proposed ideas.

By testing innovations and new technologies only within the organisation, we find that lack of time is an issue for employees, because current operational objectives are a priority. In creating a separate unit we went one step further. New solutions are implemented more effectively. We want to quickly test a new solution and know if it is working.

Innovation also means simple solutions

The Health Innovators by Medicover team currently consists of two people who act as intermediaries and coordinators. They define innovation not only through the prism of new technologies but also as the change of technique, procedure or approach.

Every success of the project is possible thanks to the experience of implementing solutions in the field of digitization and modern technologies, the awareness of the need to invest in innovations, and the company’s management supporting the startup approach to the decision-making process. Anyone can be an innovator: a doctor, a director, a specialist, a patient. It's the person who says ‘this can be done differently’. Ideas that have the potential to significantly influence the organisation, the company’s turnover and quality of patient care are often simple solutions. Their effectiveness lies in the correct diagnosis of the problem or noticing an important need.

Piotr Nowacki, Director of New Business and Innovation.

An example of Medicover’s startup approach is the creation of Medivision, a brand that offers eye care services (such as eye tests). The company was created from the need to increase the availability of ophthalmology visits. Another example is the Medicover GO application, which allows users to introduce and maintain daily healthy eating habits and physical activity through dedicated diet and exercise plans. The main beneficiaries of Health Innovators will be patients who are already using the latest technology solutions at Medicover – including Telemedical advice, mobile application, and a complete electronic medical records system.

Gum disease (periodontitis) is, along with caries, one of Poles' most common dental diseases, affecting nearly 50% of adult patients. Although the problem is serious, only one in ten of us is diagnosed or treated for this condition [1]. Undiagnosed and untreated periodontitis has very serious consequences. When untreated, it may even lead to tooth loss, so it is worthwhile to pay more attention to the prevention of periodontal disease. [1]
