The Impactful Innovation Exchange is a comprehensive platform where changemakers can search for emerging and/or proven innovations to solve healthcare problems.

Innovations included in this exchange must:

  • Seek to positively impact at least one component of the triple aim (improvements in population health, experience of care, & per capita cost) without negatively impacting the other components
  • Fall within Cambia Grove's Impactful Innovation Process (please click process arrows below to learn about each stage)

How to use this resource to search for an innovation:

  • Search by keywords associated with the problem you are trying to solve (e.g. diabetes management, interoperability, etc.)
  • Use the filters below to refine your results

RxHomeTest
Our dry-blood spot and serum separator based lab tests use a few drops of blood from a simple finger prick. Once dried, the blood sample is stable at room temperature for over 30 days, which allows regular shipping and lowers the cost of preventative checkups in large community settings.
Samaritan
Outreach and case management teams use Samaritan to engage high-risk individuals with capital that yields life-changing health outcomes. Users engage, stay engaged, and take action steps to improve their social determinants (like housing or primary care access). According to UnitedHealthcare (https://bit.ly/2ZheYIm), helping people address SDOH opens up needed capacity at EDs, hospitals, even jails.

Samaritan enables high-retention pathways for members to reach their housing and health goals.
Savvy Cooperative
The Savvy Patient Insights Platform helps companies get the patient insights they need to create better patient-centered solutions. Stop wasting time, money and resources developing products or solutions that don't meaningfully address patient priorities and/or are too difficult to adhere to. Savvy Cooperative provides a gig economy marketplace where innovators can request patient input. It is cooperatively owned by patients, which leverages existing communities and speeds up innovation.
ScalaMed
ScalaMed solves medication mismanagement (reducing interactions, improving adherence, offering real-time alerts and interventions).

ScalaMed re-imagines the Rx process - allowing providers to send prescriptions to patients phones first (rather than bypassing the patient and having the provider sending them on their behalf to a pharmacy) - and making those prescriptions smart (layering pricing comparisons, alerts, warnings, and education) & safe with our virtual care assistant - always watching
Shift Labs, Inc
The DripAssist Infusion Rate Monitor is the only FDA-cleared and CE-marked product that can accurately monitor IV infusion to help clinicians effectively administer medications and fluids when infusion pumps are not available. DripAssist was built specifically for austere medicine settings, including disaster relief, alternate site clinics, low/middle income countries, and field hospitals.
SUTUREGARD Medical, Inc
HEMIGARD is a novel disruptive technology that disperses suture tension away from the skin edge, allowing surgeons to use conventional suture at high tension and close many wounds that are usually not able to be closed, and instead require skin flaps or grafts, or natural wound care as they heal gradually over weeks or months. HEMIGARD is used intraoperatively and is left in place postoperatively for 2 weeks, supporting the wound during the high risk period where it may open (dehiscence).
TeleMedic Systems LLC
The VitalLink3 is highly flexible medical monitoring system that can be configured with medical sensor applicable to the use case. Data can be sent from the VitalLink3 over any data connection to the VitalNet server network from which one or several medical professionals can review the information live. Captures of the incoming data can be exported to 3rd party medical record systems.
VideoKall, Inc
Our CLINICSTOP Micro Clinic (cabin) and Smart Chair combined with our Supervisory Terminal creates a tele-diagnosis platform enabling the delivery of the world's first remote and complete physical exam to patients outside the traditional clinical setting. Our proprietary cabin allows for the use of remotely operated and monitored patient diagnostic devices applied by the patient with audio-video guidance. The cabin includes auto cleaning of instruments and auto sanitizing for bacteria and virus
Virta Health
Our approach is to reverse type 2 diabetes. Unlike diabetes management solutions-which work to stabilize high blood sugar through costly prescription drugs-Virta returns blood sugar to normal levels, while safely eliminating all diabetes-specific drugs, including insulin. The fact that we achieve normal glycemic control in the majority of our patients at one year while eliminating diabetes specific medications is unique to Virta Health. Also, Virta improves other chronic conditions.
Virtuleap
Each game is designed by a cognitive scientist based on a well-known exercise (e.g. Stroop Test) or inspired by such in order to create a closed-loop experience that plateaus a user at a specific difficulty level that corresponds to their cognitive load and ability. These are not easy environments to create, requiring significant iteration throughout their development life cycle, which in our industry is referred to broadly as "VR development hell".
