Mission

Visionable is in business to make healthcare more equitable and accessible for every person on the planet.

Our reason for being

Today, half the world lacks access to essential health services, and the systems that support the other half are under ever-increasing stress.

At Visionable, we know that a person’s ability to get the care they need depends largely on their circumstances. Who they are. Where they live. And in many places, whether they’re able to pay.

We believe this is fundamentally wrong. We believe that affordable, high-quality, timely healthcare is a basic human right. And to make care equitable and fair, it needs to be accessible to all.

When hospitals can travel to patients, and healthcare teams can collaborate freely across multiple locations, healthcare as we know it will be transformed.

Connected healthcare is the future, and we work closely with teams across the UK - and around the world - to make it the new reality for all of us.

Our Team

Alan Lowe

CEO & Co-Founder
Alan began his career in healthcare at the UK’s National Health Service (NHS). Rising quickly through the ranks, he was soon managing front-line services - and a staff of 200 - at London’s renowned St Mary’s Hospital, and then went on to lead the Service Improvement Program for NHS Westminster. This invaluable “in-the-trenches” experience gave Alan a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing public health in the UK. Nationally-recognised as an NHS leader and innovator, Alan pioneered the development of several clinical collaboration “firsts”, including breakthrough stroke and cancer services, which are still saving lives today. Since leaving the NHS, Alan has partnered extensively with global government health organisations and leading communications providers to identify new ways to design communications and collaboration in healthcare. He is proud to be leading an organization focused on enabling front-line staff to design the future for the NHS.
