Xealth recently announced that it is a finalist in Accenture’s HealthTech Innovation Challenge, a recognition that supports innovative approaches and solutions for improving the way people access, manage, and finance health care in North America.
Since its inception, the Accenture HealthTech Innovation Challenge has recognized innovations focused on health care organization buyers, using criteria including solution design quality, disruptive business models, and solution scalability. “After reviewing submitted applications, our team of executive judges have identified those services that have the greatest potential to address today’s health care challenges,” said Brian Kalis, managing director of digital health and innovation at Accenture. “We look forward to seeing Xealth and the other finalists present in Houston this February.”
Xealth has created a platform that scales digital health programs for the country’s leading health systems—organizing, integrating, deploying, and activating digital health tools. This functionality is designed to be easily usable by both doctors and patients. Currently, Xealth connects patients with educational content, transportation, meal delivery, e-commerce product recommendations, and other services needed to improve health outcomes.
“Digital health has the potential to advance care delivery and improve outcomes, but only if it is incorporated in a meaningful way,” said Xealth CEO Mike McSherry. “We believe that methods which build on the provider and patient relationship in an informed manner create the optimal environment for ongoing engagement. Accenture has a proven practice of enhancing businesses and we are pleased to have our innovative approach to digital health recognized as part of the HealthTech Innovation Challenge.”
The selected finalists presented to a panel of judges comprised of senior executives from globally recognized health companies in one of two regional events—one in Boston on November 7, and one in San Francisco on December 5. The final judging event will take place in Houston on February 6, 2020.
