Guiding health tech solutions to have success with both employers and the ultimate user, the employees. 

Emerging Health Technology Companies 

are under increased pressure to build momentum with their enterprise solutions.

We know your challenges:

  • The market is inundated with solutions like yours and payers won’t return your call.
  • You’ve gotten pilots that did not transition to longer term client relationships.
  • The sales cycles are long and tying up your resources for longer periods of time with no guarantees.   

And then, you may sign a contract however the signed contract with an employer is just the beginning.

A primary reason for failure in health technology is that few employees engage with health solutions that their employers purchased.  This leaves the employer with poor results and no reason to continue the contract. We know the employer market allows health technology to gain access to large groups of people, however it requires a specialized strategy to be successful.

Sylvia and Open Circles, Inc. is focused on mitigating these challenges.  With 15+ years experience in designing, sourcing, implementing, and managing health solutions for employers and the employees, we know the employer ecosystem and what’s needed to find results within this unique business to business to consumer (B2B2C) model.

We advise health technology companies to:
– Define competitiveness
– Become known within the employer ecosystem
– Build go to market strategies and manage sales cycles
– Execute implementations to attract employee engagement
– Coach for client partnership success and growth
– Measure and optimize results

Could we help with your unique B2B2C strategy?

After years in the health and wellness world, I’ve come to appreciate the challenges that make it difficult for new solution to team up with employers and health plans to provide effective health and wellness solutions.  I believe we should have access to solutions that improve our lives and that a “one to many” approach is a great way to make that happen.
