HTN 100: Babylon Health, Patchwork, AXA and Doctor Care Anywhere

Babylon Health to launch medical chatbot in US in January 2020

Babylon is securing two ‘very large’ US partners to allow US patients to use its digital triage service.

Kurt Blasena, Senior Managing Director of Commercial Strategy and Revenue Growth said Babylon hopes to grow the two large partners to three to five next year.

Blasena said the company has been localising its platform and business and will be set to launch in January 2020.


Patchwork launches new platform to provide trusts with control over workforce data

Patchwork, a solution that transforms temporary staffing by connecting vacant shifts with a growing marketplace of healthcare workers, has launched a new insights platform to give health organisations power over their data.

Patchwork Insights, makes sense of the mass of temporary staffing data most organisations have, and unlocks real-time insights and intuitive reporting to enable more effective, data-driven decision making.

Dr Anas Nader, NHS doctor and CEO of Patchwork “For far too long, healthcare organisations have had no option but to rely on ambiguous, piecemeal information and basic data reporting to devise entire temporary staffing strategies. The ambiguity stops here. With Patchwork Insights, we equip organisations with the right tools and sufficient knowledge so they can plan earlier and more effectively. Ultimately, the platform will help organisations to transform their temporary staffing function and introduce data-led decision making; saving money, freeing up time and improving patient safety.”

The ability to have a patient-GP dialogue translated quickly into onward diagnostics and treatment is what the modern healthcare experience is all about. It’s a welcome addition to our broader health and wellbeing offering – supporting our employees and their loved ones to stay well.”

AXA PPP healthcare Chief Executive Tracy Garrad said “We’re excited by the opportunity to improve further member experience, care and outcomes with Doctor Care Anywhere.

A universally customer-focused approach is at the heart of what we’re trying to achieve at AXA PPP healthcare and Doctor@Hand will play a major role in this.”
