How can Medbelle help journalists?
Our work to transform healthcare provides us with expertise, case studies, and analysis that we would be happy to share with journalists. Some of the areas we can help with are below, but this is far from an exhaustive list:
- Queries about Medbelle and our mission
- The use of technology in the healthcare sector
- Patient case studies
- Medical expertise from our network of clinicians
- Improving efficiency in the healthcare sector
- Data insights or analysis about health outcomes
- General comment on the health sector
- Features about start-ups in the health or tech sectors, or our co-founders’ story
What does Medbelle do?
At a time of growing demand for private healthcare, the sector is fragmented, low-tech, and highly confusing for patients to navigate. Too often, patients will have to find their own clinicians, organise their appointments, and pass their medical records from specialist to specialist. Medbelle is transforming this by building a ‘digital hospital’. Medbelle provides all of the patient support, administrative functions and logistical operations of a traditional hospital, using technology, data, and a patient-centred approach to improve outcomes for patients, hospitals and clinicians.
Medbelle patients only have one point of contact, their personal Patient Care Adviser, who guides them through their entire care pathway, offering support, joining up specialists, and providing the information patients need to make informed decisions about their treatment options. Clinicians are provided with administrative support and technology that works efficiently, while also being joined up with other specialists.
Medbelle is building a model for delivering healthcare in a way that works for patients and clinicians, makes better use of health infrastructure, and uses data to improve health outcomes. We are demonstrating that our model can be applied throughout the health sector, improving the delivery and efficiency of publicly and privately funded care, in the UK and around the world.

2019 Medicine Price Index
Nov. 2019 - After delving into hospital rankings globally, we discovered the impact medicine pricing can have on healthcare accessibility and wanted to learn more. This study focuses on the pricing disparity of 13 common and/or life-sustaining medicines across 50 countries as they compare to global average prices.
By compiling this data, we hope to bring some focus to this imbalance and further our ultimate goal of providing every patient with high-quality healthcare.

Oct. 2019 - Access to good-quality healthcare is a key driving factor for Medbelle. This report summarises our findings comparing the standings of countries and major cities across the world in terms of their medical infrastructure, accessibility, and medical education. Focusing on accessibility as an aspect of quality takes into account the overall quality of a city's healthcare infrastructure instead of focusing on one stellar hospital.
