NEW YORK & LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Guaranteed, a tech-enabled hospice care company, is pleased to announce that its founder and CEO, Jessica McGlory, has been selected as a RockHealth.org Innovation Fellow. The RockHealth.org Innovation fellowship is a seven-month engagement designed to create opportunities for emerging digital health leaders to gain exposure to the digital health ecosystem, deepen their understanding of trends and opportunities across the industry, and engage with the Rock Health community.
Noting that “[d]igital health innovations have an outsized opportunity to transform how health needs are understood and addressed, [yet] existing digital health innovations have not equally satisfied the needs of every individual and community – particularly those that have been persistently overlooked and underserved”— The RockHealth.org Innovation fellowship aims to better reach these critical populations by connecting innovators who are developing transformative digital health companies.
“Every day we serve populations who are traditionally ignored in hospice,” said McGlory. “I look forward to sharing our experiences and learning from others so we can continue to build towards an equitable end-of-life care experience.”
For the 2023 cohort, a total of ten innovators were selected. Criteria included those who hold CEO and/or co-founder roles; are U.S.-based; heading companies that are at least at the seed stage; have a demonstrated record of advancing the design, development, or adoption of equitable principles and/or innovations in their work; and are building a high-impact digital health solution that is grounded in the lived experience of the intended end-user population and/or from the lived experience of the CEO/co-founder.
