Businesses that didn’t adapt technologically during the pandemic likely failed, and in no industry was that more likely the case than in the healthcare sector.

Pre-Covid, the healthcare industry adhered to many ironclad practices that required in-person interaction between patients and physicians or staff. But as the necessities of the pandemic saw the entire sector shift to telemedicine and remote consultations overnight, data protection, HIPAA compliance, and cybersecurity all became crucial issues suddenly elevated to the highest level of importance.

As providers sought to quickly find partners to meet enterprise-level demand to not only solve the data security issue, but also address concerns around traceability, meet customer service challenges, and provide the best quality of medical care remotely, the entire MedTech industry had to rise above the occasion and supersede demand.

Source Meridian is one such partner.

At the outset of the pandemic, Source Meridian’s innovative big data and analytics solutions allowed companies in the healthcare and life sciences industries to move with agility and accuracy through the constantly shifting regulatory and compliance landscape all while providing the highest level of care to their patients. 

Based in the United States and in Colombia, Source Meridian focuses on providing companies the technological solutions they need to establish firm business growth in times of uncertainty. 

As the region recovers at an exponential rate from the crisis, the healthcare sector in LatAm is expected to lead the pack in digital transformation within the next decade, followed closely by the Life Sciences and Infrastructure sectors.

Source Meridian is led by Michael Hoey, founder of Ipsum Clinical, a Colombia-based company that provides biopharmaceutical companies with data-driven insights. Source Meridian operates out of the United States and from three locations in the Colombian cities of Medellín, Calí, and Rionegro.
