Dr. Darria Long Gillespie ranks as one of America’s experts on maximizing ROI in healthcare. After joining the faculty of Harvard Medical School immediately after residency, she was appointed to Senior Vice President of Clinical Strategy by digital health engagement company Sharecare. She frequently speaks as a medical expert on national TV including CNN and FoxNews, and serves as national spokesperson for the American College of Emergency Physicians.
Widely regarded as an authority on creating/executing/implementing digital strategies for health, Dr. Gillespie continues to practice medicine as an ER physician. Her unique position at the intersection of medicine, media, and business enables Dr. Gillespie’s deep understanding of the stakeholders necessary for transforming the way we think about health.
In many industries, all it takes is a big idea and a solution to a problem – It’s hard to get a taxi? Uber. Don’t like the impersonal hotel? Airbnb. But success in digital health isn’t as simple as the next hot new app. Entrepreneurs, investors, and established healthcare IT firms alike can mis-read the unique elements required to bring a product to this market, to set up (and maintain) reimbursement, and to drive patient and physician utilization. It takes more than just a great idea, but also a deep knowledge of the complex and ever-changing healthcare industry.
On the flipside, knowledge of these requirements can yield opportunities and distinct market advantages for those that understand them. Successful digital health companies today leverage the reimbursement systems, embrace the regulatory environment, distinguish their outcomes, and understand the nuanced differences between their web of direct and indirect customers of hospital systems, payors, physicians, and patients. In today’s healthcare system, these issues make the difference between ideation, and a successful venture.
