Digital Health

Digital Health has had many meanings over the years, and, generally speaking, there is still a wide variety of definitions. However, it is typically agreed upon that the purpose of Digital health is to connect and empower people and populations to manage health and wellness. This is augmented by accessible and supportive provider teams working within flexible, integrated, interoperable, and digitally-enabled care environments that strategically leverage digital tools, technologies, and services to transform care delivery. This description was devised by the HIMSS, who have established themselves as a global advisor and thought leader within the Digital Health space.

With this in mind, we at Metric Search focus on working with companies that are using the power of technology and applying it in a way that betters patients' health worldwide. This includes everything from Health and wellbeing apps to highly regulated software being used in clinical settings, as well as the growing importance of Healthcare Data Analytics. The companies that we work with are harnessing the true power of technology to simplify access to medical care for everyone, including people in areas typically underserved by traditional health care. These products are also proven to improve outcomes and drive patient compliance without needing repeated in-person visits, saving time for physicians, and allowing them to treat more patients more effectively.

We are currently partnering with various companies in the space, from early-stage seed-funded startups to large, global leaders, taking a unique approach to each relationship depending on the needs of individual clients.

Our core area within the Digital Health space is Engineering (Software and Hardware) and Product Management, focusing on Senior level Individual Contributors up to Executive Leadership. 

We have seen the market develop vastly in a relatively short period and our experience gives us a much deeper understanding of the intricacies of securing world-class talent, allowing Metric Search to become one of the industry leaders in placing high-level candidates. It also allows us to work closely with our clients to identify talent who can add substantial value across Engineering and Product functions.
