As part of Accenture’s broader HealthTech Innovation Program, startups will compete to bring innovative technology and creative solutions forward to improve the way people access and manage healthcare. Building on the success of the inaugural program in which 500 startups participated, the Accenture HealthTech Innovation Challenge brings together leading-edge startups with prominent health and life sciences companies to tackle some of the world’s greatest health challenges including access, affordability and transparency.
The four categories startup companies can enter in the Accenture HealthTech Innovation Challenge are:
- Help ME better manage my health where applicants address how consumers (patients, caregivers or families) can get the right health information and services at the right time; how people’s lifestyle needs be better understood to optimize care.
- Help ME get better faster where applicants address how services can be provided to support care plan adherence and improved outcomes; how real world evidence and/or non-traditional data streams can be used to improve patient outcomes.
- Help ME have better and easier access to healthcare where applicants address how the underserved or remote populations get access to better trained and skilled healthcare workers and the right treatment for improved health and lifestyle needs.
- Help keep MY information private and secure where applicants address how personal health information can be kept both private and secure while enabling information sharing and improved experience.
Selected applicants will be invited to compete in one of the company’s regional rounds in Singapore, Boston or London where they will be judged by an esteemed panel of leading life sciences and healthcare company executives and members of the investment community.
Deadline: September 1, 2017
