StartUp Health and Aurora Health Care Launch Call for Innovations to Create a Personalized Population Health Platform
Date:6/22/2016

StartUp Health, leading a global movement to transform health by organizing and investing in the world’s largest community of Healthcare Transformers, and Aurora Health Care, a leading not-for-profit health care system, today announced a call for innovations to discover digital health startups to integrate into a Personalized Population Health Platform. The platform is intended to provide targeted care to Aurora’s patient population and the surrounding community, and could be applied to patients using the Medicaid payment mechanism. Companies can apply at StartUpHealth.com/Aurora.

“The Aurora and StartUp Health collaboration is supercharging how quickly we are able to bring the best new health technologies to people in our community,” said Michael Rodgers, Director of Strategic Innovation at Aurora Health Care. “We’re looking forward to working with the next generation of Healthcare Transformers to help create the Personalized Population Health Platform of the future.”

“StartUp Health’s ongoing collaboration with Aurora has been an extraordinary example of how the world’s leading health systems can collaborate with Healthcare Transformers and startups to foster innovation that will improve care delivery,” said Polina Hanin, Director of StartUp Health Academy.

This call for innovation will select Healthcare Transformers that will work to:

1. Assess: Develop and identify the health landscape of people in the community using multiple data streams, from psychosocial to financial systems

2. Engage: Intervene and engage with people in the community to collect data on their specific situation and build a comprehensive patient profile outside of using a smartphone or assumed data points/identifiers

3. Create Pathways: Use analytics to predict an ideal plan, build personalized pathways for the population based on individual patient profiles

4. Manage and Prevent: Leverage existing community and hospital programs and connect people to internal and external resources that enable them to live happier, healthier lives

5. Sustain: Create pathways to better reflect individual lives and help in the transition to healthier lifestyles by knowing what is working and what is not for patients and people within the community

Selected companies will be invited to StartUp Health Academy’s lifetime coaching program for Healthcare Transformers and receive access to Aurora’s internal commercialization, IT and innovation teams.

Startups may apply online until July 20, 2016 at StartUpHealth.com/Aurora. Companies that have previously applied to StartUp Health will also be considered and can update their original applications online. The selected finalists will be announced after a formal review process by Aurora and StartUp Health. Companies selected for this program will be announced in fall 2016, with the platform launching in early 2017.
