A concept born in the halls of digital health's first accelerator
As Partner and Executive Director of Blueprint Health from 2013-2015, Doug led 4 cohorts of founders in all aspects of company building. Doug daily work was hands-on with every founding team, helping them define their problem, develop their solution, make their first sales, close their first investor, and build their emerging team.
Blueprint Health hosted the largest demo day for healthtech in the country, regularly drawing 800+ attendees to our semi-annual demo days. The size and quality of the audience helped ensure our portfolio companies closed their investment rounds quickly after demo day.
"When I started to track how many connections I had made between executives working on the same things, I saw a real need in the ecosystem." —Doug Hayes, Founder of Junto Health
Executives across healthcare were working on similar problems, but were not working together to deliver innovative solutions.
The biggest challenges in healthcare cannot be solved by just ONE person, company, government, decision, action, or idea. So Junto Health designed an ecosystem of those ready, willing, and able to drive healthcare forward. The first codevelopment consortium for digital health was born, bringing together dozens of member organizations every quarter for private summits.
Inaugural Member Organizations:
- Mount Sinai
- New York Presbyterian
- Northwell Health
- Emblem Health
- Allied Physicians Group
- Sachs Policy Group
- HP Enterprise
- Boehringer Ingelheim
Junto Health Summits became a center of gravity for creative collaboration in Healthcare Technology
Our summits supported creative collaboration between large and small organizations of all types operating in the healthcare space, from providers, payers, manufacturers, technology companies, and startups to investors. Using Junto Health's unique process, members launched multi-stakeholder "cluster projects" around shared interests and market opportunities.
