Sandbox AQ | March 24, 2022

Sandbox AQ, an enterprise SaaS company leveraging quantum tech and AI, announced a collaboration with Mount Sinai Health System to launch Post-Quantum Cryptography solutions, a broad security technology solution to protect patient data against current and future cybersecurity threats.

Sandbox has developed SaaS-based enterprise modules that incorporate the latest encryption protocol standards recently ratified by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). Through Sandbox AQ, Mount Sinai Health System will incorporate PQC protocols into its network to provide increased security for millions of customers and their sensitive data.

"Our collaboration with Sandbox AQ propels our security and technology strategies forward, enabling us to deliver advanced, secure cutting-edge products to our patients. Protecting patient data against cyber threats is incredibly important to us."

Kristin Myers, Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Mount Sinai Health System and Dean for Information Technology at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

 

"Quantum technology will quickly render today's RSA-based encryption obsolete, which is why it's imperative that we protect the world's sensitive data now against the next generation of cyberattacks," said Jack D. Hidary, CEO of Sandbox AQ, which officially launched today. "Mount Sinai is one of the first healthcare systems planning to implement PQC protocols into its health network to protect its customers and transform its business. We look forward to collaborating with them on this project."

H1 Launches First Solution That Brings Life Sciences Teams The Data Needed To Build More Inclusive, Successful Trials

H1 | September 03, 2021

H1, which provides the largest global healthcare platform connecting the healthcare ecosystem, announced today that it has launched H1 Trial Landscape, the first solution that not only helps pharma and life sciences companies determine the required clinical experience levels for their clinical trials, but also enables them to find the best patient segments to improve inclusivity, retention and recruitment for successful trials. Studies have shown that more than 80 percent of trials fail to enroll patients in a timely manner, causing delays in the trial process. By providing powerful data insights, H1 can reverse this trend to empower companies to create a healthier future for patients across the globe. H1 Trial Landscape can help companies: Lower study startup costs by planning more efficiently Understand the site and investigator clinical trial landscape Make better partnership choices for studies based on patient needs and organizational interest Improve patient retention and reduce risk of patient recruitment failure Simplify internal staff training with one platform that evolves with a drug’s lifecycle H1 has also pioneered a path forward for pharma and life sciences by partnering with physicians and organizations to map relevant trends within clinical trial diversity and inclusion. This new data comes as a response to new FDA guidance around enhancing diversity in clinical trials and encouraging inclusivity in medical product development, given life sciences companies are now required to report on the diversity of their trial patient populations. “H1 Trial Landscape can help a company complete feasibility much more quickly, often in hours, instead of weeks,” said Ariel Katz, cofounder and CEO of H1. “And it’s the only such solution that specifically addresses and segments potential diverse patient populations for clinical trials.” One of the first companies to utilize H1 Trial Landscape is a leader in data-driven and innovative clinical trials, TrialSpark, which runs clinical trials in partnership with multiple pharma and life sciences companies. "H1’s solutions have helped us greatly accelerate proposal development as well as the trial planning phase to help us find KOLs and identify high quality potential sites to advance our recruitment initiatives,” said Leslie Saltzman, Senior Medical Director, TrialSpark. “Not only does H1’s mission really resonate with our team, but we've appreciated the ability to partner to help bring diversity to clinical trials, ultimately increasing access to a broader population of patients. Anything that helps us advance clinical research is a huge win, which makes H1 a no-brainer for us.” Powered by H1’s existing HCP Universe platform which consists of industry leading site and investigator data, H1 Trial Landscape is available as an add-on to the H1 HCP universe solution.

Zuora Helps Siemens Healthineers for Cloud-Based Medical Products

Zuora | December 22, 2020

Zuora Inc. (NYSE:ZUO), the leading cloud-based membership management stage supplier, reported today that it is helping Siemens Healthineers AG (SHL.DE), a leading medical innovation organization with more than 120 years of involvement and 18,500 licenses worldwide, present new repeating income streams from its Digital Health Solutions Portfolio utilizing Zuora Billing and Zuora Revenue. The coming of cloud-based information management and man-made brainpower (AI) have empowered progressions in medical innovation that are expanding operational productivity while improving patient results. Siemens Healthineers has been at the bleeding edge of this pattern. The organization has presented computerized wellbeing contributions like the teamplay advanced wellbeing stage, which empowers medical care suppliers' advanced change; AI RAD Companion, an AI-upheld, cloud-based image translation device; and AI-Pathway Companion, an AI-based programming encouraging customized and normalized diagnosis and therapy choices. While these new items were fruitful with clients, they presented difficulties for the organization's account and IT capacities. The membership model is described by more modest installments, a requirement for estimating transformation, fluctuating volumes, incessant changes, and unmistakable bookkeeping rules. Thus, the whole request to-income measure, with its integral back-office measures, contrasts significantly from those for a value-based plan of action. Siemens Healthineers' conventional deals approach for equipment and programming should have been tuned for new and dynamic advanced contributions; the organization required the capacity to help new repeating income models across numerous client contact focuses for a consistent start to finish membership experience. “We needed to move from transactional to recurring for many parts of our digital portfolio,” explained Rahma Samow, Head of Siemens Healthineers Digital Health Global Sales, Marketing and Digital Go-to-Market. “For an expanding range of digital offerings, more and more customers are buying into the idea of continually experiencing new functionalities, new features, new capabilities, and specifically, enhanced added value over time.” Florian Rachny, Head of Digital Business Processes, Siemens Healthineers added, “But, we needed technical support for IT to drive this transformation.” Siemens Healthineers added Zuora Billing and Zuora Revenue to the company’s IT stack. Zuora now powers back-office processes like tax calculation, accounting, invoicing, and license management. Zuora also helped the company institute new leading KPIs, such as the number of active users, premium conversion rates, and churn rates. For some parts of its portfolio, Siemens Healthineers has also begun the transition from simple cost-plus pricing to pricing based on delivered value. “For example, the AI-Rad Companion is priced based on productivity savings and quality improvements in customer settings,” said Rahma Samow. Mechanizing the request to-income measure with Zuora has empowered Siemens Healthineers to diminish the quantity of manual cycles by over 60% and turn out to be more agile by shortening the handling time by about 75% for their membership management. Perhaps just as important as pricing flexibility and efficiency gains from automation has been Zuora’s unique expertise on the cultural shift to subscriptions. “Zuora has given us both technical and strategic capabilities to achieve our long-term goal of running a successful subscription model in the backend,” said Rachny. About Zuora, Inc. Zuora provides the leading cloud-based subscription management platform that functions as a system of record for subscription businesses across all industries. Powering the Subscription Economy®, the Zuora platform was architected specifically for dynamic, recurring subscription business models and acts as an intelligent subscription management hub that automates and orchestrates the entire subscription order-to-revenue process seamlessly across billing and revenue recognition.
