Leading Innovation Platform Will Help Med-IQ Explore New Ways to Transform Medical Education and Improve Patient Outcomes

WILMINGTON, Del., May 5, 2020 – Planbox, a leader in AI-powered agile innovation management solutions, today announced its platform has been selected by Med-IQ, a major provider of clinical and risk management education for medical professionals, patients, and caregivers, to help drive the development of groundbreaking products and services in healthcare. Med-IQ will use the Planbox solution, which recently received the highest scores in strategy and current offering in The Forrester Wave™: Innovation Management Platforms, Q1 2020, to scale its innovation program in a rapidly evolving industry and better position itself for future market leadership.

“We are excited to utilize the Planbox solution to manage our innovation systems,” said Jill Longman, senior client account manager, policyholder education, at Med-IQ. “While Planbox offers a broad selection of features and resources for its users, the platform’s intuitive interface, easy idea submission and management tools, and highly configurable platform design are what made this solution perfect for our rapidly growing company. In order to stay ahead of the competition and to position our organization for long-term success, it was essential to find a provider that can easily scale with us.”

Planbox’s cloud-based platform gives Med-IQ visibility into all of the organization’s innovation activities in one place, enabling it to rapidly identify and pursue breakthrough ideas. Planbox accelerates continuous improvement and breakthrough innovation with features that include an AI capability that mines internal and external datasets to surface relevant information, a system to crowdsource innovative ideas, business “challenges” to encourage focused problem-solving, and sophisticated tools to collaboratively evaluate, select and develop the best concepts. 

“We are privileged to work with Med-IQ at this vital moment,” said Ludwig Melik, CEO of Planbox. “As organizations across the globe deal with mounting challenges, it has never been more important for businesses to be nimble and innovate effectively. We are dedicated to helping companies like Med-IQ find opportunities in rapidly changing markets and to help them position themselves for long-term growth.”

Med-IQ supports medical providers throughout the healthcare system with education programs that improve clinical skills and care efficiency. It operates in a sector where advances are rapid, therefore requiring a scalable and flexible platform to help it meet its innovation goals. After completing an in-depth trial of six innovation management systems, Med-IQ selected Planbox software for its superior ability to facilitate collaboration across the organization. This summer, Med-IQ’s parent company, Coverys, will also deploy the Planbox platform to its 600 employees and partners around the globe.
