What is it

We Prove the Value

of Healthcare Products

Most people in healthcare don’t know how to prove a product’s value, so we created a platform that calculates value based on evidence, tracks results, & simplifies the buying process to save time & hit budgets.

Hospitals & Surgery Centers use Valio as their product evaluation process.

Vendors use Valio to clarify their message to focus on where they have proven value.


We know how vendors position products to get them sold, with or without evidence, and we know the process hospitals use to approve or deny products.

We built the solution that helps hospitals & vendors speak the same language of clinical & financial value, so everybody wins.



Founder & CEO

Valio is founded by Gary Stark, former Medtronic Senior Regional Business Director & Medtronic/Covidien Director of Strategic Sales Development.

Gary led sales teams from the East Coast through the Midwest where he was the first and longest serving Senior Regional Business Director.  Gary also served as the Director of Strategic Sales Development for Covidien, where he helped to develop the overall sales strategy for both the Ausosuture & Syneture businesses units.  Additionally, Gary helped to launch internet startup Bountyjobs in New York city, venture backed by Greylock Partners.
