About the Challenge
The Prime Health Challenge was started in 2014 to galvanize the burgeoning digital health ecosystem in Colorado and accelerate the adoption of digital health technologies ―including patient engagement apps, data analytics, remote patient monitoring, artificial intelligence, telemedicine technologies and more―oriented toward achieving the “Quadruple Aim” of improved patient experience, provider experience, improved population health and lower costs.
The 5-month program, powered by The Colorado Health Foundation, validates companies based on business and clinical rubrics as well as safety net alignment, sustainability and alignment with health care needs in Colorado in order to identify the most impactful, sustainable and commercial-ready solutions. Companies participating in the program receive coaching, feedback and mentorship from industry experts and top leaders on how to better align their companies and products, key information needed to be successful in Colorado, pressing needs facing our providers and patients, guidance on aligning their product to relevant quality measures and reimburseable codes, and more.
The program concludes with finalist companies pitching their products live in front of a panel of healthcare executives from healthcare institutions across the state and an audience of hundreds to win a portion of the prize funding and the opportunity to pilot their product at one of the healthcare institutions.
