Congratulations to our judges’ winner Remedy and audience favorite winner Constant Therapy at the second annual American Heart Association Health Tech Competition during the Scientific Sessions! This three day long event is the leading cardiovascular conference in the United States, with more than 19,000 cardiovascular experts from over 105 countries in attendance.
Out of 40+ National startups and 20+ solid applicants, emerged seven outstanding companies (Biome, Caremerge, Constant Therapy, Medisafe, Mocacare, Moving Analytics and Remedy) that competed in the event. All have a key impact on innovative healthcare solutions that improve patient and provider outcomes for heart health.
Each startup represented a diverse spectrum of healthcare innovation demos in front of a panel of judges, made of up AHA faculty, the past winner of last year’s competition, Sense.ly and Scientist in Residence at Khosla Ventures. Interested audience members of practitioners, researchers, and various healthcare professionals engaged and wanted to know more about the lineup of stellar demos. Both the judges and the audience were able to cast their votes to select winners for the competition!!
Remedy received the Judge’s Choice Award, with a cutting edge approach to help the patients save money on their medical bills through error identification and correction with both the providers and the payers.
Audience Favorite award was presented to Constant Therapy, which is a cloud based solution that helps people improve their brain function after an injury, stroke or diagnosis of a learning disorder or dementia.
Outside of the competition, these companies showcased their technologies to healthcare professionals on the convention floor during the three day event:
The reception immediately following the competition allowed both starts ups, investors, AHA advisory members and judges to come together to deepen their novelties and interests after experiencing the competition!
We hope that this event not only benefitted the startups competing, but also get the global community of heart experts thinking about how technology can improve their practice and how to be a proactive in the face of changing times.
