Our objective

The overall strategic objectives for Coalition NEXT 2022 are to improve the patient experience and to generate value-based patient outcomes in integrated care. To achieve this objective we are looking for solutions that help us with the following three themes : Enabling prevention and/or an accurate access to healthcare, Accelerating the diagnosis and/or optimising the treatment pathways and Smoothening the process of remote care



Enabling prevention and/or an accurate access to healthcare

Coalition NEXT is looking for solutions that help people to manage their health and detect a potential risk or early onset of a disease or health condition. The solutions should allow individuals to easily understand the insights, recommendations and the call to actions from it. The access, awareness and understanding of the data by an individual should be a first actionable step to reach out to and access the appropriate healthcare providers.

Accelerating the diagnosis and/or optimising the treatment pathways

Coalition NEXT is looking for solutions that facilitate a faster diagnosis by healthcare professionals or for solutions that support the diagnosed patients with treatment access and adherence. These solutions should guarantee the highest quality of care by integrating in the respective pathways that improve the coordination between the patient and the Healthcare Professional, amongst the Healthcare Professionals, and/or between different healthcare organisations.

Smoothening the process of remote care

Coalition NEXT is looking for solutions that support patients to stay in the environment they want to be treated, managed or monitored.  These solutions should create value for all stakeholders and facilitate a multi-disciplinary, hybrid and integrated care collaboration to avoid admission, support early dismissal, or prevent re-admission in hospitals. Solutions should impact efficiency in the process by optimising or centralising aspects such as patient monitoring (data insights, treatment adherence), patient interventions (eg. medical tests, early warning notifications with personalised thresholds, just-in-time and first-time-right interventions, coaching, treatment decisions), patient education (eg. digital literacy, disease progress, symptoms, necessary actions towards HCPs) and/or patient experience (with a focus on the interpersonal, emotional and care experience for patients, their family, network and caregivers).

Process of the call for projects

Eligibility check  

To investigate whether solutions are eligible to participate in this Call for Projects, each company needs to complete an online form with some brief standard questions on their solutions. These answers will be evaluated internally prior to the Selection Committee.

Selection Committee

Every founding member of Coalition NEXT Belgium is part of the Selection Committee. They will evaluate the dossiers based on the 9 selection criteria : The company information, the suggested solution, the implementation

In-depth analysis

After the Selection Committee, the selected dossiers will then first undergo an additional due diligence by the experienced team of Digital Pharma Lab. The selected dossiers that are approved will be invited to pitch their solution to the Deployment Committee.

Implementating the solutions

You did it ! Your solution will be deployed in the Belgian health ecosystem!

Deployment workshops and project support

The actors interested in a project are brought together and define together with the startup the support and the accompaniment necessary to carry out its deployment.
