A story by ESTEVE Pharmaceuticals
When they presented me the eHealth HUB Platform as “the yellow pages of digital health”, I thought it would be a good idea to register and have a look to the eHealth ecosystem, to identify new companies or experts we were not aware of.

“We are a leading pharmaceutical chemical group”
Esteve is a leading pharmaceutical chemical group formed by more than 2,400 professionals with a clear priority: to contribute to the wellbeing of society. We focus on innovation and excellence in the scope of healthcare by working every day to meet the needs of our clients. To achieve this, Esteve is already working to add value through digital health innovations. The use of digital tools will be necessary, especially those tools related to empowering patients to manage their health and to increase their adherence to their health care plan.
“ehealth HUB PLATFORM: a place to be”
The eHealth HUB Platform was introduced to me as “the yellow pages of digital health”.
At Esteve we often do solution scouting to explore potential digital health initiatives or opportunities. Therefore I thought it would be a good idea to register and have a look to the eHealth ecosystem, to identify new companies or experts we were not aware of. Specially in our therapeutics focus areas and with the technological approaches we are looking for.
“A very simple yet comprehensive tool”
The eHealth Hub platform proved to be a very simple yet comprehensive tool to identify promising startups. It allowed me to identify several companies from some European countries related to the fields we are focused on.
“Once registered, exploit the eHealth HUB platform”
I guess the next steps are to follow-up with the new updates. From time to time we will check what is on it and investigate the new players. Also, if we participate in future opportunities like Procurement of Innovation we will definitively know where to start searching for partners!
