<![CDATA[GET project supports 400+ SMEs and startups]]> https://www.get-ehealth.eu/2015/11/03/get-project-supports-400-smes-and-startups/ https://www.get-ehealth.eu/2015/11/03/get-project-supports-400-smes-and-startups/

During 2 years 400+ eHealth SMEs have received support on private funding, internationalization, business modelling and identification of new opportunities

The European GET project, funded by the European Commission has supported over 400 SMEs and startups by delivering four high value services. Throughout the 24 months the project has trained, guided and coached Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to develop a successful business model, access private funding and/or set up an international business. Also, in cooperation with end-users and health providers, the project has supported the identification of unmet needs that can become business opportunities.

“eHealth SMEs need ongoing and in-depth support to succeed”

According to project leader Jorge Gonzalez, “eHealth is a relatively young field with numerous business challenges for entrepreneurs and start-ups, including business modelling, internationalization and access to private funding. The GET project has delivered coaching, resources and other types of support to help eHealth SMEs succeed in the European markets and abroad."

Sarah Lopez, founder of the C2C Oncology project and one of the start-up participants declared “Without the support of the GET project I will have never believed in my idea or found the strength to present it at a contest being alone. The advice I was given was very helpful.”

The CEO of OvulaRing/VivensoMedical, another start-up participant, added: “The pitch rehearsal from Get Funded was quite impressive and useful straight to the point. The critical reflections and the recommendations given by Pascal Lardier improved the presentation quite well and gave us the possibility to focus the content for the presentation in adoption towards the audience.”

Valuable guides and reports for digital health startups

Over the last 24 months, the project has generated a rich repository of online resources including many useful guides, interviews and reports. Among the most interesting results are the list of 250+ global digital health investors, guides to successful business modelling and the many ‘’lessons learnt” for SMEs looking for funding or to access new international markets. The repository is free to access and can be found on the GET project website. It will remain available even after the project at www.get-ehealth.eu.

<![CDATA[How did GET help the C2C Oncology app?]]> https://www.get-ehealth.eu/2015/09/03/how-did-get-help-the-c2c-oncology-app/ https://www.get-ehealth.eu/2015/09/03/how-did-get-help-the-c2c-oncology-app/

Now that the GET project has delivered its services to SMEs and startups the last 20 months, we are asking some of the beneficiaries how the project has helped them. 

We asked Sarah Lopez, founder of the C2C Oncology project and developing an app.

GET: Thank you Sarah for taking the time. Please tell us more about your project. 

Sarah Lopez: "My project is to build a mobile application for oncology. It will allow to monitor side effects of oral chemo therapy and oral targeted therapies of cancer patients treated at home. The point is to better adopt the dosage they receive and have a better knowledge of their wellbeing everyday. The second objective is to inform them through the app and help patient prepare their next appointment with the oncologist. This application could be used in mainstream oncology but also clinical trials if slightly modified. The point is to monitor side effects of oral treatments but it could be used for intra-venous therapies as well (scientific modification needed to adopt the app though)."

GET: Before meeting the GET team, what challenges did you face? 

Sarah: "Our biggest challenge is to decide on one business model but mostly to get scientific validation. As we are building a medical mobile application for oncology we want to have the content fully approved by a board of oncologists, if possible key opinion leaders, and they are hard to get to. That is why the help of GET organization, cancer organization and pharmaceutical lab can come handy in order to give some credibility to the project and open the doors of oncologists' offices."

GET: How did you get into contact with the GET project? 

Sarah: "I got into contact with GET by sending an email to Jorge. I first new the get project through an Horizon 2020 newsletter."

GET: What kind/level of support did the GET project offer you?

Sarah: "Jorge offered me advise, corrected my presentation, my speech. He also gave me documentation such as identifying needs in healthcare and how to build a business mode. Those documents the GET provide are very useful and simple enough. The list of identified needs is something key and very valuable that I have presented to all pharmaceutical lab innovation manager I could meet."

GET: What value did it bring you?

Sarah: "The GET organization offered me support and credibility but also documentation."

GET: Was the support of the GET project helpful and in what way ?

Sarah: "Without the support of the GET project I will have never believed in my idea or found the strenght to present it at a contest being alone. The advices I was given were very helpful."

GET: Where are you know? Have you overcome some issues? 

Sarah: "Today the project is moving forward slowly but we will go faster in September. I am just out of a meeting with the pharmaceutical lab Pierre Fabre, they will help me with the project as outsiders. They won't be financing the project as I want to keep it unbiais but they will be helping me to get in touch with oncologists, patients and pharmacists to contact user study and scientific validation. They are interested in the project as one of their main product is an oral chemotherapy.


Today I have 2.000 euros for this project. The point is not to create a company per say per but a non profit organization in order to get financing from the cancer research organization next november. I was alone working on this project but in September we will be six, all pharmacists, working on the scientific side of the project but also it's marketing and scientific communication. Hopefully I have found student developers willing to work on an Android versionof the app for free or little money. I will need to pay for iOS developers most likely. But for the time being the scientific development of the project is the  hardest work.

The C2C oncology app product will be free. We will develop it through public financing as an organization most likely. The app will need to evolve and management + teaching will need to be done at partner hospitals but that will be a sold as service to the hospitals. There is also the possibility to incorporate the app in clinical trials softwares especially for pharmaceutical labs and that could be a money stream as well. 

Thank you so much for your help Jorge and GET!"

<![CDATA[What do patients and carers need in health apps - but are not getting?]]> https://www.get-ehealth.eu/2015/06/24/what-do-patients-and-carers-need-in-health-apps-but-are-not-getting/ https://www.get-ehealth.eu/2015/06/24/what-do-patients-and-carers-need-in-health-apps-but-are-not-getting/

Download the whitepaper here.

Despite the huge and obvious potential of health apps to support patient self-care and reduce the drain on healthcare systems – their use has yet to move into mainstream medicine and public health programmes aimed at disease prevention. The lack of user involvement is one of the major reasons why health apps have failed to deliver thus far: what do patients and carers need in health apps - but are not getting? And how can developers respond and deliver better apps accordingly? These are the two key questions tackled in the latest analysis of the findings of a global survey and multi-stakeholder workshop, published today by PatientView, in conjunction with Health 2.0 and TICBioMed, co-ordinator of the EU-funded GET project.

The results, presented in a new white paper, What do patients and carers need in health apps - but are not getting?, analyse the views of 1,130 patient and carer groups worldwide. The needs and challenges raised were then discussed in a multi-stakeholder meeting held to help define concepts for new apps that address patient and carer unmet real needs.

“As investors we all know that the business plan you see one day is going to be out-of-date very soon, most likely within three to six months anyway. So it's about having the confidence that the management team is going to be able to react accordingly and continue to build the company in a rapidly changing landscape.”

Would you like to connect with Digital Health talent to help you with your Health challenges?


The European project GET aims to connect unmet needs in Health with digital entrepreneurs and SMEs. The idea is to identify Health opportunities, difficulties or challenges within Healthcare organizations, and interact with digital talent to solve them.


On the 18th of May we are organizing an event to connect proposers of Health challenges with digital developers to jointly identify the best solutions. It will take place in Barcelona, as part of the Health 2.0 conference, one of the most relevant in the Digital Health sector.


Participate as a proposer

We are looking for Healthcare organizations (hospitals, Pharmaceutical, insurance companies) to propose their own Health challenge and participate at the event. This Get inspired initiative is completely free of charge, funded by the European Commission, and there is no obligation to establish a relationship with the organizers nor with the solvers after the event.


Do you have a Health challenge that can be solved with the use of digital technology?
Then you can become a proposer!
