Ever wish you could tell the future? Well, you can’t- but a pilot study can certainly help. Pilots are instrumental in helping organizations learn how a technology application might work in practice, or, more specifically, in their practice. By conducting a pilot, you get a chance to test out your technology, predict what might occur when you expand your reach, and most importantly, learn how to tweak your business model to support a large system. Eric Conner, Co-founder & Chief Revenue Officer of Healthify learned that, “Piloting de-risks trying out new technology… and forces both the host and the innovator to be more innovative.” Conner also adds that after piloting, “… you’re ready to implement your technology in a large health system [since] you have the kinks all worked out” and your company is prepared with the tools they need for large-scale growth.
