After 10 years of helping and watching entrepreneurs and startups land their dream clients, pilots or investments through our ecosystem of magazines, events and networks, we decided it was time to shake up and disrupt the industry. With over 2.6 million B2B and B2G leaders in our network in healthcare, insurance and wellness we have decided to scour through tens of thousands of companies, using industry leaders to identify the most innovative companies and professionals who are on the cutting edge of their industries. Launching the first Innovation Awards provides opportunity for disruptors, entrepreneurs and dream weavers to present themselves to Global Healthcare Resources network of the leading employers, hospitals, insurance companies, investors and governments in the US and from around the world.
True innovation is difficult and often rare to deliver. Today, innovation and disruption requires dedication, risk taking, resilience, and speed to be first to market. Even if you achieve the miracle and create something truly disruptive, it is almost impossible to get noticed and to break through the white noise and distractions that consumes the industry every day.
Innovation and disruption are more important than ever with all the challenges in rising healthcare costs, lack of engagement of employees, boring employee benefits, culture fatigue, problems with presenteeism, absenteeism and attracting the best talent. Organizations are tired of maintaining the status quo with few creative options and many understand the need to stay in perpetual motion just to stay relevant and to attract the next generation of dedicated employees.
At Global Healthcare Resources and HEALTHCARE ЯEVOLUTION we understand that what defines “innovation” and “disruption” is constantly changing. What was innovative or disruptive 2 years ago, 1 year ago or even 6 months ago, may not be today. We are always evolving. In order to get anyone’s attention, something needs to be special, revolutionary, and the criteria is changing every day and the bar rising. We polled our network, asking hundreds of leaders to recommend and identify new sources for innovation.
