There are thousands of organizations offering solutions to scores of challenges around engagement. Below are 11 companies who have taken aim at seven of the key problems. They’re all on to something.
These are private companies of all stages that think they’ve found a path to improve patient engagement and healthcare delivery. When it’s all said and done, the ENGAGE showcase will have a collection of 18 startup companies, government pilot programs and non-profit experiments dedicated to taking on the most important challenge in healthcare (we’ll unveil the final seven in the coming weeks).
