Placebo

A marketplace for medical practices to find technology vendors

Published on: June 10, 2019 | Location: Philadelphia, PA, USA | Tags: Health technology
Placebo is building a one-stop-shop for medical practices to find and evaluate all kinds of technology vendors, from office phone systems to patient portals to the newest remote vitals monitoring tools. Placebo saves time for clinicians, purchasing teams, and administrators by rigorously vetting all vendors before they are hosted on the site. We stand by the integrity of our vendors and each one is personally vetted in order to save purchasing agents time and energy.

Additionally, Placebo was born from a real struggle the co-founders had as colleagues at their former health technology company. It is difficult to get a great health tech product in front of medical practices who (rightfully so) use lots of gatekeeping tactics to keep sales out of the way of patient care. So, they created a new way for medical practices to evaluate vendors on their own time and keep time for patient care sacred.
