About vTail: vTail (www.vtail.co) is a newly launched digital healthcare communications platform designed to connect healthcare professionals (HCPs) with representatives from the medical technology, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical diagnostics industries. The company’s early launch focus has been in medical technologies, having launched in the advanced wound care market and now planning launches into the orthopedics and dental markets.
Prior to COVID-19, market dynamics were pushing communications between HCPs and medical company representatives farther apart. COVID-19 made this an acute crisis, and all stakeholders agree that a “new normal” is settling in that won’t look anything like pre-pandemic communications. vTail’s goal is to modernize these communications, making it simple for HCPs to find, connect, and communicate with their assigned local representatives. In doing so, the company aims to help make their work lives significantly more efficient, and to drive optimal clinical outcomes by assisting HCPs in getting the information they need, when they need it.
vTail is built in an “HCP friendly” architecture, allowing them to control the flow of communications, not having to share their personal contact information, and only getting communications from those companies they elect to connect with on the app. The service is free to HCPs, and has been selected as a Top 10 Clinical Communications and Collaboration Solution Provider for 2021 by MD Tech Review.
