Moneys Magazine meets Ido Zamberg, CPO & Co-Founder of HeadToToe.
HeadToToe is a cloud-based mHealth platform for management and dissemination of guidance in hospitals. This includes all the clinical and administrative guidance used by medical teams in their daily practice. Today, there is no single source of truth for guidance in hospitals, with content being stored in fragmented and disconnected software. This makes it extremely difficult for medical teams to access their knowledge base, get updated on changes in guidance and collaborate with other teams. The result is significant operational inefficiencies and medical errors. HeadToToe was created by medical doctors to address the daily needs of their teams and is being used in hospitals in the US, Canada and Europe. With HeadToToe, medical teams can access any item in their knowledge base within seconds. The system automatically manages the quality of the content, and notifies stakeholders on changes in clinical guidance. Health professionals have access not only to their department’s guidance – but also to that of their entire hospital. Finally, usage analytics inform decision makers on content usage patterns.
