Published on 24th May 2016 by Medelinked

New marketplace for improving consumer service by commissioning new applications on the Medelinked Platform

Oxfordshire, 24th May 2016 – Medelinked, the global online and mobile health platform that empowers healthcare engagement and management, today launched the Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange.

Bringing together professional, purchaser, provider and pharma organisations with developers, the Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange is a marketplace for those who want to improve consumer care via new applications on the Medelinked Platform.

Using the Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange professional, purchasers, provider and pharma organisations can identify and commission a growing network of developers to create and co-create additional products and services as well as find already connected wearables, healthcare and commercial applications that are customised for the Medelinked Platform.

Accessing the Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange

Accessing the Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange is quick and easy. Those with a requirement simply fill in the form on the Medelinked website here http://www.medelinked.com/healthcloud/#innovationexchange submitting the idea for the application that they wish to develop. This will then be directed to appropriate developers within the Medelinked Partner Development programme for fulfilment. The Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange can also be reached at [email protected]

A Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange LinkedIn Group is also available to allow community discussions to take place, for instance between developers, clinicians and commissioners for projects and in future all parties will also be able to engage in Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange hackathon events to rapidly develop cutting-edge applications.

Eliminates risk, saves time

In developing a proven ecosystem of developers and already connected products, the Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange eliminates risk and saves time by helping commissioning organisations connect with the best developers and tools that integrate with Medelinked to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare delivery and enhance the enjoyment of professional roles.

The Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange complements the Medelinked Partner Development Programme in accelerating the global development and adoption of medical, wellness and fitness apps, devices and sensors by healthcare consumers and service providers to better and more flexibly serve primary care customers and reduce the load on surgeries and hospitals.

Bottom-up not top-down

The Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange will enable applications to be created rapidly to satisfy 'bottom-up' service-driven consumer demand rather than `top-down` technology provider push as has so often been the case in the past and so will be more effective in meeting both professional and patient need.

The Exchange will also allow for the integration of technologies such as Medelinked Symptom Checker and Medelinked HealthClick Optical Character Reader through the Medelinked Partner Development Programme API.

Partner development programme

The Medelinked Partner Development Program is based on the Medelinked Health Cloud that provides the infrastructure, including Open APIs and SDKs, for Medelinked partner, provider and pharma organisations to quickly build and deploy digital and mHealth apps and services.

It allows them to take advantage of Medelinked’s decade of experience in the mHealth marketplace and the ever-expanding Medelinked ecosystem. In particular, it offers the ability for vendors to deliver as part of an open, integrated online and mHealth platform. In doing so supporting the complete patient journey along with other products, services and routes to market, increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare delivery in the context of the pressures that health delivery systems face currently.

Apps, device, sensor and service vendors and healthcare provider and pharma organisations that already work with the Medelinked Health Platform worldwide include: Allscripts; Bioclinica; Bupa; Chat to a Doctor; FitBit; iHealth; MyDirectives; Salesforce; Samsung S Health; Symptom Checker and Nokia/Withings.

Personalisation of healthcare

Ian Gallifant, Medelinked CEO, says: “The proliferation of healthcare apps into the marketplace is proof of the desire amongst consumers for increasing effectiveness and efficiency in healthcare and for its personalisation. The Medelinked Healthcare Innovation Exchange now makes it even easier to commission new systems to build the quality of patient relationships, service and care levels offered by professional, purchaser, provider and pharma organisations in the Medelinked Global Personal Health Network.”
