DispatchHealth places first in InnovationX competition


DispatchHealth has announced that it has won the third annual InnovationX competition that is run by Adventist Health System. The company showcased its in-home care delivery platform and triage system that provides right-sized care and tackles the needs of the consumer and challenges of at-risk patients.

“With so many amazing companies represented, we are honored to win the InnovationX competition,” said Mark Prather, CEO of DispatchHealth. “Our solution aligns with Adventist Health System’s imperatives to lower the cost and expand the network by delivering quality, convenient care in the home at an affordable cost.”

DispatchHealth creates mobile and virtual healthcare that is delivered through integrated, convenient, high-touch care while extending a patient’s care team capabilities. This allows for the company to give quality care while at home at lower prices.

InnovationX is a “Shark Tank” style competition that 20 startup and mid-stage companies from across the U.S. participate in. The companies pitch their ideas that help address some of the challenges in healthcare and a panel of judges made up of healthcare executives gives the companies a chance to further develop their products and design a pilot with help from the Adventist Health System.

“The exciting thing about this year’s InnovationX is how we were able to align these companies with our imperatives and how their solutions move the needle,” said David Banks, chief strategy officer for Adventist Health System. “We saw 20 amazing companies and look forward to working with these companies in the near future.”

Previous winners of the InnovationX competition include 2015’s Babyscripts that was a platform to remotely monitor pregnancies and Twistle in 2016 that was a process and quality improvement platform that helped engage patients with treatment plans from their provider to help improve patient outcomes.

“The future of health care will be defined by those who effectively apply the discipline of innovation and design,” said Vickie White, VP of marketing and innovation for Adventist Health System. “InnovationX is where Adventist Health System brings in companies ranging from the leading-edge start-ups to mid-sized companies to help us co-create the future of care for our consumers.”
