A leading research and advisory company, Gartner, recognised Better Platform as an Example Provider for digital health platform (DHP) in their Hype Cycle for Healthcare Providers, 2020, report which was published in August 2020. The company describes that the DHP approach is “emerging rapidly as number of leading vendors in this space have released powerful cloud native capabilities to create personalised application experiences.”
In their report, Gartner included Better as an example of the DHP approach. The digital health platform was added among new innovation profiles to the report. According to Gartner, “the sudden disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic has woken up the leadership of every business to the existentially critical importance of business resilience. In healthcare this has exposed significant gaps in EHR capabilities related to adapting and scaling new ways of working like integrated virtual care. To compensate, the vast majority of providers have adopted solutions outside the EHR to respond. The digital health platform approach will help remove the existing technological barriers and unleash the full power of digital innovation and transformation.”
Gartner also offers a view on the impact that the DHP approach could have in the digital health industry: “The DHP approach is emerging rapidly as number of leading vendors in this space have released powerful cloud native capabilities to create personalised application experiences. This will break the stronghold of monolithic vendors and circumvent EHR vendor-controlled application marketplaces.”
