SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xealth, a leader in enabling digital health at scale, today announced that the company has received the “Best Connected Health Platform" award as part of the 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program, showcasing technologies and companies that drive innovation and exemplify the best in medical and health related technology solutions across the globe.
The MedTech Breakthrough Awards program recognizes the medical and health technology innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the world. The 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from throughout the world. Winning products and companies were selected based on a variety of considerations, including innovation, design and user-experience, as well as overall technological advancement for their respective categories.
“Since inception, Xealth has helped health systems optimize their investments in digital health assets so they can reach clinical and operational goals,” said Mike McSherry, CEO and co-founder of Xealth. “Recent events, including the pandemic, have elevated the importance of quickly and strategically deploying digital health programs, particularly around telehealth, patient education and remote patient monitoring. We are honored to have these efforts recognized through the MedTech Breakthrough Award program.”
With doctors having access to tools beyond medications – adding trackers, meal delivery services, digital therapeutics, patient education, remote monitoring devices and more to treatment plans – healthcare organizations need a strategy around their use. How do health systems easily integrate digital health tools within existing workflows, make sure only needed patient data is sent, identify which options are covered by payers and show data around what is helping patients?
The Xealth digital health platform enables health systems to easily integrate, deploy and scale digital health programs, for measurable results. It is the first company to integrate digital solutions within the doctor’s current workflow, so time is not spent toggling between systems, and information flows back from the patient into the same place, making this a complete, two-way interaction between doctor and patient. Xealth currently connects more than 30 digital health partners, including Amazon, Welldoc, Healthwise, ResMed, and SilverCloud.
To date, more than 500,000 programs, services, and videos, plus over 61,000 remote monitoring and devices have been prescribed through Xealth, and that figure is constantly increasing.
