Start from your need, ask European SMEs for a solution
Most healthcare providers are looking to implement digital health solutions. However, the market is constantly evolving and finding the perfect match to a concrete and very specific need is challenging: they lack a broad access to the European innovators’ community; scouting for specific solutions is time-consuming and most providers don’t have the human resources to dedicate to this task; gathering, evaluating, comparing information and filtering potential candidate solutions for fit requires a framework that is often missing.
What we offer
Solution Match is the eHealth Hub free and personalized service for health care providers interested and ready to implement a digital health solution, helping them gather and clarify their exact requirements; research and compare available solutions developed by European SMEs; dress a list of the most relevant solutions (‘Solution Report’), and facilitate introductions & networking with solution owners during live events (‘Solution Match Live’). Starting with the providers’ needs, Solution Match will also benefit European eHealth SMEs by connecting them to key potential customers.
An opportunity not to be missed
Through Solution Match, eHealth Hub provides an efficient method, a painless process and a live/online platform for healthcare providers to scout and connect with European eHealth innovators. A free service, Solution Match takes care of the time-consuming processes and helps them:
- Access a large network of European innovators;
- Filter solutions for fit, according to their exact needs and requirements;
- Connect with top vendors in person through Solution Match Live;
- Connect with other health care providers with similar challenges and needs.
Solution Match is a free service, funded by the European Commission through Horizon 2020. The service is designed and delivered by prominent European professionals, under the eHealth Hub Consortium.
Is Solution Match for you?
Solution Match is designed for healthcare providers interested in implementing a digital health solution within their organizations and ready to engage in serious discussions with digital health SMEs offering relevant solutions. Healthcare providers are broadly defined as public and private hospitals, clinics, primary and specialty care providers, nursing homes, care coordination networks, HMOs, pharmacy groups, etc. Although designed primarily for providers of healthcare services, Solution Match is also proposed to payers (public and private insurers), pharma and medical device companies.
Starting with the needs of the demand-side stakeholders, Solution Match will also benefit European eHealth SMEs (headquarters or main offices located in Europe) with a functioning solution, closely matching our clients’ needs and requirements, and ready for large scale implementations. Participating SMEs need to be willing to travel and present their solutions at live events, either at the client premises or at a major European digital health conference.
Activities / Events
eHealth Hub is planning to have at least 8 iterations of the full Solution Match service, including a Solution Match Live, and to produce 12 Solutions Reports as we consider that some healthcare organizations will not be ready or willing to host or participate in a live event. The iterations of Solutions Match Live will either take place at the healthcare providers’ premises or as a satellite event of a major European digital health conference.
The first Solution Match Live event will take place on April 3rd at Hospital Bernal in Murcia – our first client healthcare provider. The following live event will most likely take place on May 3rd as part of Health 2.0 Europe 2017.
