Hearst is one of the nation’s largest diversified media, information and services companies with more than 360 businesses. One might think 360 is enough, but to innovators at the company, it’s not. In addition to venture capital investments and M&A, Hearst includes the Hearst Health Innovation Lab, which is a part of Hearst Health, and aims to improve patient experiences by utilizing product concept prototyping and market evaluation internally as well as with external companies, entrepreneurs and inventors. Each year in the U.S., care guidance from the Hearst Health network reaches 84 percent of discharged patients, 177 million insured individuals, 44 million home health visits, and 4 billion prescriptions.
