科技动态 2018-07-19 阅读原文



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

professionals attending the


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.”
