Virgo Health launches healthcare innovation hub

The Egg service specialises in creating holistic solutions for patients and HCPs

Virgo HealthVirgo Health has launched a new healthcare innovation hub to help organisations target areas of unmet need and create solutions to help patients, healthcare professionals and pharma alike.

The new service - Egg - will be offered to pharma to help companies ascertain how services for patients and healthcare professionals can be improved by industry innovation - particularly when it comes to reimbursement.

Ondine Whittington, managing director at Virgo Health, said: “Over the last few years we have seen increasing expectation from those responsible for reimbursing and providing access to medicines for pharma to focus on not only providing effective medicines, but also on the holistic health of a patient to improve outcomes and lower costs.

“Egg, powered by the deep expertise and heritage of Virgo Health, can support industry to work out what services patients and healthcare professionals really need and want, and how the reimbursement process is evolving to support provision of such services.”

Egg was kicked off with two white-label product launches, Prodigi and Trial360, developed by the Virgo Health team.

Prodigi is a digital network tool that facilitates online collaboration, enabling organisations to better share best practice and learn from health education insights.

The technology has been adopted by Imperial College Health Partners as part of innovations hub Digital Health London, and is being used to create an online community of practitioners working in atrial fibrillation.

Meanwhile, Trial360 is a digital platform for clinical trials developed to streamline execution and efficacy without compromising trial standards. The tool offers training, resources, expert support and networking opportunities as well as a separate forum for patients to learn more about clinical trials and access post-recruitment support.

Chris Knight, Egg innovation director at Virgo Health, said: “The pharma industry has historically invested heavily in establishing and maintaining professional relationships but traditional face-to-face interactions have become increasingly challenging and fragments, putting a significant brake on innovation.

“Now is the time for private, closed online networks where stakeholders can be engaged with content and peers in an environment the need and want.”
