In the words of Dean Kamen, “Every once in a while, a new technology, an old problem, and a big idea turn into an innovation.” Keeping this wise concept in mind, a digital health company known as Seeker Health was formed. Founded on November 3, 2015 in California and headquartered in Palo Alto, Seeker Health is one of a kind digital health company which is revolutionizing the way that biopharmaceutical companies enroll clinical trials. A clinical trial is the sole way in which a new medicine can come to market and enrollment challenges are cited by industry experts as the biggest obstacle to completion. The basic function of this company is to harness the power of social and digital media in order to find patients with serious and chronic diseases.
Seeker Health’s CEO, Sandra Shpilberg, founded the company with a firm belief in the need for technology and innovation for pharmaceutical drug development. Prior to the formation of Seeker Health, Sandra was an executive at Nora Therapeutics and at BioMarin Pharmaceutical.
The company has enrolled clinical trials in numerous fields such as oncology, women’s health, gastrointestinal, neurological, metabolic and dermatological diseases. Reported case studies show the ability of this approach to save months off of the enrollment timeline and accomplish study completion.
