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

Innovations

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.
TourniTek
TourniTek is the first pre-hospital treatment for limb threatening injuries. Using therapeutic cooling, TourniTek preserves injured limbs in the field until patients can be transported to definitive surgical care. By treating these injuries prior to surgical care, TourniTek can prevent amputation and permanent disability. However, our technology goes beyond just saving limbs. TourniTek is a critical preparedness tool that can be used in a variety of acute care situations such as hypothermia, hyperthermia, burns, and metabolic damage.
Vector Remote Care
Vector’s complete cardiac digital health platform makes it simple for cardiac care teams to accurately capture, manage, analyze and act on the growing volume of remote cardiac data generated from cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). Vector helps monitor and manage the entire cardiac remote data lifecycle—from patient set up, to data transmission, to analysis—freeing valuable clinical staff time. Vector provides the essential tools and expert support so cardiac teams can work efficiently without getting overwhelmed by multiple systems, manual processes or being at risk of missing important alerts. This helps clinics ensure patients stay connected while maximizing the full value of cardiac remote monitoring technology.
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.
Virtro Technology Inc.
Building healthcare worker confidence through practice simulations.
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".
Wanderly
Wanderly streamlines the process it takes to get a clinician into a position. Wanderly flips the funnel from recruiters-seeking-candidates to candidates-seeking-recruiters. Clinicians build their profile on Wanderly with all their needed documents for employment (e.g., resume, credentials, licenses, certifications). Then, just like Uber and Kayak.com clinical staff can search and find the right next step for them. Our user-friendly design is a powerful tool and its why we have earned the trust of 46,000 users. Recruiters can post jobs and utilize our powerful targeting tools to fill their jobs quicker. It's not about a nursing shortage, it's about making the market more efficient.
