IRVING, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
today announced it is accepting applications from health care
startup companies interested in competing in its sixth annual Innovation
Challenge, which will take place October 3 as part of the 2018 Vizient
Connections Summit to be held in Las Vegas. Applications are due by 5:00
p.m. CDT on Monday, August 6, 2018.
The Innovation Challenge is an interactive competition that offers a
unique opportunity for health care startup companies with innovative and
compelling solutions in the virtual/remote care and communication/care
coordination domains. The companies should be revenue producing but
still in the early growth stage.
- Virtual Care/Remote Monitoring – Digital Technology (telehealth,
wearables, kiosks, chatbots, robots, etc.) that connects providers and
patients to care and monitoring without being face-to-face.
- Care Coordination/Communication – Digital Technology that connects
provider-to-provider and provider-to-patient to coordinate and execute
on the patient’s plan of care.
The competition will include two contestants each going head-to-head in
the virtual/remote care and communication/care coordination domains
respectively. Each contestant will deliver an eight-minute product pitch
then participate in a five-minute question and answer session from an
expert panel that includes an executive from two of Vizient’s member
hospitals, a venture capitalist investor and the Chief Executive Officer
of Vizient. A live audience made up of roughly 2,000 health care
vote for their favorite innovation
during the head-to-head portion of the competition in each of the
domains. The overall winner will be selected by a second live audience
“As a champion for innovation in health care, we are pleased to host
this event,” said Bharat Sundaram, president, analytics and advisory
services for Vizient. “This gives us the opportunity to highlight some
of the newest and most exciting solutions aimed at improving the quality
and delivery of patient care.”
