Healthcare executives are keeping their eyes on Amazon, but when KLAS Research asked over 300 healthcare leaders to identify the most potentially disruptive company in healthcare, they found many smaller, emerging companies. These companies could indicate which problems executives are most focused on solving right now. Below are some of the top companies most frequently mentioned in the survey:
Cedar, a patient payment and engagement platform.
Jvion, an artificial intelligence company using predictive analytics to identify preventable harm.
Arctic Wolf, a healthcare cybersecurity company.
Nuance, a company working on conversational and natural language processing for healthcare.
TytoCare, which provides at-home medical exam kits combined with virtual care.
Caretaker Medical, DoseMe, eMerge Health, Evidence Partners, HeartFlow and Lean TaaS were also brought up.
Other “emerging” vendors mentioned included Google, Livongo, Microsoft, Salesforce and Apprentice Health.
In general, AI and machine learning were mentioned by many respondents. Executives were also interested in telehealth companies, analytics and business intelligence, population health and robotic process automation. Technology segments that got fewer mentions include blockchain, price transparency, patient experience, and interoperability solutions.
