ViVE 2022 is officially a wrap, and the collaborative event between HLTH and CHIME was as action packed as the Miami Beach streets surrounding it. The event put the spotlight right where it should be, on the companies working to bring innovation to areas such as health equity, patient engagement, and interoperability.
Although ViVE attendees shared enough news to fill multiple full issues of Digital Health Wire, this wrap up highlights some of the biggest partnerships and product launches announced during the event.
- Amazon Pharmacy expanded its MedsYourWay card to allow Blue Cross and Blue Shield members in five states to compare medication costs while applying any purchases to their out-of-pocket maximums.
- Cedar launched its Cedar Pre solution that delivers “concierge-style guidance” to patients preparing for care in order to create transparency as early as possible and help people make informed decisions while avoiding surprises later in the process.
- eVisit debuted its eAnalyze reporting dashboard that allows providers to view visit metrics in user-friendly graphs and tables to help identify the dynamics behind visit traffic to prompt proactive changes that can improve operational efficiency.
- Google Health is adding a new Conditions feature to its Care Studio that uses natural language processing of patient notes to provide physicians with a summary of a patient’s medical conditions along with context from labs, medications, and other sources.
- Get Well is expanding its population health offerings to help payors and at-risk providers better manage rising-risk members by rapidly adjusting engagement to drive improvements in key metrics including wellness visit completions and CAHPS surveys.
- Homeward emerged from stealth with $20M in Series A funding and a leadership team of ex-Livongo execs to help bring value-based primary and specialty care to rural communities by combining remote monitoring services with in-person visits via mobile units.
- Luma Health launched its LumaBot chatbot that addresses provider burnout by helping patients handle tasks such as scheduling appointments and intake paperwork, then writing details such as appointment changes directly back to the EHR to save staff time.
- Quil debuted its Quil Assure platform that uses ambient sensors placed around a senior’s living space to notify their ‘Care Circle’ of any unusual routine changes, helping seniors enjoy greater independence by reducing the need for unnecessary check-ins.
- Salesforce showcased Safety Cloud improvements that help businesses scale health testing and status collection, including automation features for COVID-19 protocols and multi-factor credentials to streamline entry into events or buildings.
- Unite Us launched a Social Care Payments solution designed to bridge the gap between payors and community-based organizations by streamlining the implementation of social care programs so that they can focus on improving outcomes.
Although ViVE contained plenty of news to satisfy most digital health appetites, there’s good news for those still craving more announcements. HIMSS22 kicks off next week, and while the themes will be similar, it should bring another wave of fresh releases from attendees.
