Kicks Off Developer Challenge With Dignity Health and The Social+Capital Partnership
LOS ALTOS, CA – Oct 2, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ — Box today announced that it has expanded its ecosystem of partners across the web and mobile devices to better serve healthcare organizations. The 13 new partners will work with Box to help physicians, payers, patients, and administrators more easily collaborate and securely share information across a variety of use cases and applications. Additionally, Box has teamed up with Dignity Health, the nation’s fifth largest hospital system, to spur innovation in patient education with a developer challenge. The challenge calls for developers to build apps for doctors and hospitals to deliver engaging content to patients. The winner will receive a $100,000 convertible note from The Social+Capital Partnership, a venture capital firm in the Silicon Valley.
“There’s a huge opportunity to increase productivity in the healthcare industry by improving the way information is captured, managed and shared,” said Whitney Bouck, senior vice president and general manager of enterprise at Box. “With our expanding ecosystem, we’re bringing Box and the power of information into entirely new healthcare use cases and scenarios, and attempting to stimulate new innovation with our developer challenge. We’re thrilled to be able to support these efforts and to play a role in helping transform an industry that touches so many people’s lives.”
To oversee Box’s expanding ecosystem of healthcare customers and partners, Box recently brought on industry veteran Missy Krasner as managing director of healthcare and life sciences. With more than 20 years of experience in healthcare and health IT, Krasner will lead Box’s healthcare and life sciences initiatives. Most recently Krasner was an executive in residence at Morgenthaler Ventures. Previously, she worked in health and consumer marketing at Google, where she was a founding member of Google Health. Krasner also worked for the Bush Administration in the first national health IT office (ONC at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) and was a product marketing director at CareScience, a healthcare information technology company.
