Neura Health Recognized in Fast Company's 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards

Company’s virtual headache and migraine clinic ranks as a category leader for second consecutive year

NEW YORK--()--Neura Health has been selected as an honorable mention in the Health category of Fast Company’s 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards for the second consecutive year. The company earned recognition for their virtual neurology clinic, which is improving access to and quality of care for patients with chronic neurological conditions. Other winners were recognized for sustainable designs, innovative products, bold social initiatives and other creative projects that are changing the way we work, live and interact with the world.

Neura is the only comprehensive virtual headache and migraine clinic that offers those living with headache and migraine disorders 24/7 unlimited online care team access, individual care coaching, prescriptions and referrals. Nearly 40 million people live with migraine disease in the U.S., affecting 1 in 4 households. With Neura’s solution, individuals have access to a neurologist via video appointment in just 48 hours, compared to 4-6 months in more traditional models.

With convenient care on demand, integrated symptom tracking and specialized neurologists who really listen to patient’s needs, Neura empowers individuals to more easily manage their condition in one place. Neura’s clinical outcomes have been published in the peer-reviewed journal Headache. Participants have experienced a 73% reduction in ER and urgent care visits, a 75% median reduction in headache frequency and a 67% median reduction in headache severity after three months of Neura membership.

“I founded Neura Health based on my own experience struggling to find care for a neurological condition. Given the prevalence of these conditions, I knew there were others who could benefit from better access to quality care,” said Elizabeth Burstein, CEO and Co-founder of Neura Health. “We’re proud to be recognized as a World Changing Idea for the second year in a row and look forward to continuing to grow our impact.”

This year’s World Changing Ideas Awards showcased 45 winners, 216 finalists and more than 300 honorable mentions—with health, climate, energy and AI among the most popular categories. A panel of Fast Company editors and reporters selected winners and finalists from a pool of more than 2,200 entries across urban design, education, nature, politics, technology, corporate social responsibility and more. Several new categories were added this year including rapid response, crypto and blockchain, agriculture and workplace. The 2023 awards feature entries from across the globe, from Italy to Singapore to New Zealand.

Fast Company’s Spring 2023 issue (on newsstands now) will showcase some of the world’s most inventive entrepreneurs and forward-thinking companies that are actively tackling global challenges. The solutions cover everything from water reuse in urban environments and modular housing to an initiative combating book bans and a program that spotlights trans-friendly salons around the world.

“It’s thrilling to see the creativity and innovation that are so abundant among this year’s honorees,” says Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. “While it’s easy to feel discouraged by the state of the world, the entrepreneurs, companies, and nonprofits featured in this package show the limitless potential to address society’s most urgent problems. Our journalists have highlighted some of the most exciting and impactful work being done today—from housing to equity to sustainability—and we look forward to seeing not only how these projects evolve but how they inspire others to develop solutions of their own.”
