First of all, what is Startup Health? They self describe (in part) as follow:
They are an army of Health Transformers that "Through the strength of its global brand, reputation, network, army of “Health Transformers” and platform, StartUp Health has quickly amassed the world’s largest portfolio of over 230 digital health companies, from six continents and 20 countries..."
"Access to Care, Cost to Zero, Cure Disease, End to Cancer, Women’s Health, Children’s Health, Nutrition & Fitness, Brain Health, Happiness & Mental Health, and Longevity..."
In short, Startup Health is a Healthcare incubator that helps launch startups in the healthcare space.
There is one thing for certain, post Covid-19, and that is that the healthcare industry will not look anything like it looked like prior to the virus. There is going to be a major consolidation cycle and the "little guys," no matter how cool the tech, will find it increasingly difficult to break into this space. A space that has been notoriously difficult to crack, long before Covid.
Here's the thing, the "Big Boys" are not going to let you play if your cybersecurity house is not in order. If you can't competently respond to their questionnaires (one per year usually) and/or provide them the additional the documentation they request, your Moonshot will quickly be headed for a crash landing back to Earth, and perhaps not survive at all. Our partner's Expresso 3.0 (Silver) Business Partner Vetting portal prepares you for the requests that are certainly coming your way. It will also helps you perform due diligence on your partners. Security is only as strong as its weakest link.
In conjunction with our partner's Silver Subscription Plan, which includes Expresso 3.0 (Silver) (the Risk Assessment Express for HIPAA and GDPR), you get policies and procedures, model documents, training, scorecards, model contracts and more. Here's the bottom line, for under a $5000.00 Fixed Fee we can get your Moonshot compliance program up and running; enough to pass muster with the Big Boys. We have been doing this for over a decade. The Fixed Fee includes twenty-five (25) hours of legal attorneys fees (i.e. to guide you through the process) and the cost of our partner's Silver Subscription Plan. The counsel guiding you, as your virtual privacy/security officer, is a recognized authority in this space.
If you can find a better value proposition then buy it. Our partner's plan provides "Enterprise Compliance for the Masses." Our entire value proposition is to grow this solution at scale. Expresso is now on version 3.0, purchased by hundreds of subscribers. Further thousands of customers have purchased our individual products.
If you want references, we have those too.
To be clear, we are not selling penetration services, intrusion detection systems, name your technology du jour. Our firm, together with 3Lions Publishing, Inc. dots the "i's" and cross the "t's" so that the compliance program you launch supports whatever technology you have implemented. Finally, $5000 won't get you a fully launched program, it will get you a excelerated start on making significant headway in an extremely short period of time. Compare that to the tens of thousands (or more) from our competitors and you begin to understand our value proposition.
Our Startup Health Moonshot engagement focuses on setting the tone and direction of your HIPAA/GDPR/Other Compliance Program, so that you meet the most requirements in the shortest period of time. Although there are an overlapping set of deliverables with our HIPAA Jumpstart program. Our laser focus here is getting your Moonshot ready for prime time vetting from the Big Boys.
The cost of our Fixed Fee package is $3,500.00 USD and time boxed at fifteen (25) hours, plus the cost of our partner's Subscription Plan at either a (Basic or Silver) leval.
As stated above, the deliverables (in part) are: (1) the policies and procedures enumerated above fully discussed and understood within your organization; (2) a complete and actionable Risk Assessment implemented with the assistance of Expresso®; and (3) a Remediation Plan based on our Scorecards.
Think of it as a kind of insurance policy. It is now widely understood that a significant breach of protected Information will cause large scale financial and reputational damage to your Organization (think Target). Our Cybersecurity Audit helps you reduce identified Risks to levels that are "reasonable and appropriate" for an Organization of your size and complexity.
Our Moonshot offerin reviews one Profit & Loss center within your Organization.
Our Moonshot program produces Remediation Plans as a subset of its deliverables. However, actual remediation can be an open-ended project whose cost is NOT included in the Fixed Fee offering.
