    SAN DIEGO – February 13, 2017 – DoctorGlobe, the nation’s first online U.S. domestic hospital-shopping platform, announces that co-founders Tibi Zohar, CEO, and Yori Landau, CTO, DoctorGlobe, will exhibit at the HealthCare Information and Management System Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference, Feb. 19 - 23, 2017, Orlando, Florida, Innovation Kiosk 7785-64, reserved for innovative technology startups. Leading inpatient care into 21st century online consumerism, DoctorGlobe’s hospital-shopping platform is designed to help self-insured employers achieve substantial savings by utilizing online healthcare consumerism. DoctorGlobe created the innovative “Relative Pricing” method, based on big-data and crowd-wisdom, to overcome non-transparency, exploit price variance, and highlight quality of care.

    “By providing a cash incentive as a part of the corporate savings, DoctorGlobe’s bonus incentive tool converts plan members into online healthcare consumers, inspiring them to shop for the hospital that best fits their needs, and be rewarded based on the savings their chosen hospital generated,” says Zohar. “This bonus method, coupled with the friendliest user experience and our proactive intervention strategy, drives up plan participants’ engagement, which has proved challenging for other platforms.”  

    The platform features an innovative pricing method called “Relative Pricing” that drives an algorithm that ranks 120+ surgery procedures across 2,800+ hospitals by quality, distance and price, and allows employers to dictate preferences based on average costs of employee care, minimum desired savings, and desired employee bonus.

    HIMSS brings together 40,000+ health IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world, and offers exceptional education, world-class speakers, cutting-edge health IT products and powerful networking.

    “More stakeholders are seeking innovative solutions to the lack of consumerism in healthcare, and embracing this first and only U.S. domestic online hospital-shopping platform as part of their efforts to boost participant engagement to be able to curb staggering healthcare costs,” Zohar adds. “Rewarding plan members for making cost-effective selections is an ideal way for self-funded employers to trim millions off of their healthcare costs, which is of particular interest to midsize and large plan sponsors, ERISA groups, labor unions, Third Party Administrators, brokers and benefits consultants.”

    Zohar takes an in-depth look at online healthcare consumerism in his new white paper, “Ushering Inpatient Care Into 21st Century Online Consumerism.
