Over the last 12 months we have been busy reviewing evidence to assess companies as part of our HealthXL Verified process. Just last March we reviewed the first 100 companies and since then we have seen an incredible response from the private healthcare technology companies on the HealthXL Platform, providing us with both self-published and peer-reviewed evidence of their solution's efficacy.

In the coming months, HealthXL will invite a wider range of companies to be reviewed within the HealthXL Verified process.

Data for the healthcare executive

Healthcare executives have complex requirements when differentiating technology companies who purport to solve problems of strategic importance to their organisation.

The layers of information to determine compatibility and strategic fit are often complex including assessment of clinical, economic and patient data.  In our experience working with these executive decision makers there is a pressing need to get the views of multiple stakeholders.

We have been working closely with our members to allow them to segment the market and differentiate between potential solutions based on what is important to them as healthcare executives, including; deeper insight into how the technology is delivered, its regulatory/reimbursement status, how rigorously their technology has been tested and much more.

HealthXL is already providing this information today through its private collaboration index tool, and will be allowing our members personalise their HealthXL Verification process early in 2018 - making it easier for any of their colleagues to view the market from the lens of the healthcare specific strategic requirements of their organisation.

Getting the stakeholders point of view

In addition to these custom models, HealthXL Members will be able to invite others in their organisation or external stakeholders (clinicians, patients, industry experts) to join a _task force _to evaluate a shortlist of solutions based on their specific domain expertise.

By the end of 2018, all HealthXL Members will be able to create custom verification models based on the needs of their organisation or even a specific project; and if they need further assistance or expertise in the evaluation of similar solutions in a resulting shortlist, they will be able do so by setting up a private task force on our platform.

HealthXL Verified will fast become a solution that simplifies a job for our members which currently sits across a number of unconnected services including expert networks, private company investment data solutions and a wide range of unorganized data related to a company’s clinical and reimbursement status. We believe this move will stimulate more collaborations at a faster rate between our members and innovative healthcare technology companies.

This small change to the requirements for achieving the HealthXL Verified status is the first of many changes that will happen over the course of 2017/18. These further changes will be focused on allowing HealthXL Members to develop their own parameters for verification on our platform, first through our unique data set on healthcare technology solutions and second through providing access to targeted thought leaders in a structured and collaborative manner.
