Digital Transformation with a Human Touch.

 

Recognizing people as partners in knowledge generation.

PEOPLE GAIN A VIVID HEALTH PICTURE

By using Hugo to connect with their health data, people become the holders of the most comprehensive and up-to-date version of their health data. This rich asset grows over time and will in turn help researchers produce new knowledge at scale. By putting people at the center of this equation, we accelerate knowledge generation, ultimately benefiting the individual and the research community.

PEOPLE BECOME PARTNERS IN RESEARCH

Hugo builds partnerships between people who generate data and those working to advance research and improve outcomes. This unique approach is already transforming health care and moving us closer to a 21st century learning health system.

PERSON-CENTERED DATA SHARING

In a learning health system, we all get smarter as new data is generated. Hugo’s unique person-centred approach promotes transparent data sharing and makes it easy for people to provide specific permission for the use of their data.


Enabling
long term relationships with people.

LIFETIME INSIGHTS

Hugo enables researchers to develop long-term relationships with individuals after a study or trial has finished. This provides vital longitudinal data, giving lifetime insights into a person’s health. Being able to monitor the long-term effects of interventions is a considerable opportunity to develop more effective treatments.

REDUCING LABOR-INTENSIVE FOLLOW-UP

Maintaining long-term partnerships with individuals makes it easier and more efficient for researchers to follow up with them and capture new data. The current process is highly labor-intensive.


Fostering a
spirit of partnership
in research.

REMOVING BARRIERS TO PARTICIPATION

We have the ability to build large, person-centred communities who collaborate with research over the long-term. Individuals can now participate with research as active partners, in a way that is personalized and convenient to them. They can be matched and enrolled into relevant trials more easily and quickly than currently possible.

LEARN FROM THOSE AHEAD OF YOU. HELP THOSE WHO FOLLOW

Many people are motivated to share their health data for the benefit of society. In doing so, they help those on health journeys behind them. Each person’s experience may lead to insights that benefit those who follow.

SHARING THE COLLECTIVE WISDOM

Knowledge generated from research must integrate into clinical practice in real-time. With each piece of data generated, with the specific permission of each individual, medicine gets smarter and better able to help them and those who follow.

CONSUMER MEDIATED DATA COMMONS

As data accumulate, people can build consumer mediated data commons and decide collectively who may learn from their data. Now, data, rather than being wasted or sequestered, are leveraged. People are part of a virtuous community using their data for the common good – even as they may also be benefitting individually.


Respecting privacy by asking permission for data use, always.

STONG PARTNERSHIPS ARE BUILT ON MUTUAL RESPECT AND TRUST.

Hugo develops trust by adhering to strict privacy principles and cultivating relationships between people and a vetted community of data users. This new paradigm has the potential to spur a transformative ripple effect throughout the healthcare system

HUGO USERS OWN THEIR DATA

Hugo works on behalf of healthcare consumers to obtain and use their own health information to provide a modern, tech enabled research experience. As owners of their data, people can choose how, or if, they would like their data used.

A PRIVACY CENTER TO FACILITATE TRANSPARENCY AND UNDERSTANDING OF HUGO’S PRIVACY POLICY

Hugo is entrusted with the most sensitive information and we take the responsibility of safeguarding a person’s privacy and the security of these data very seriously. Therefore, we believe it is important that individual’s understand how their information is collected, shared and used.
