WHAT: September 14th, 2020 – Navicent Health, in partnership with Atlanta Tech Village, Georgia HIMSS and TAG Digital Health, has announced the finalists for the 2020 Georgia Healthcare Innovation Challenge (GHIC). Launched in July of 2020, this challenge aims to foster collaboration between medical and technology providers to improve the delivery of healthcare in Georgia.

On July 30th, Navicent Health leaders ‘Reverse Pitched’ the healthcare ecosystem by presenting two key challenges they are looking to solve with the help of technology. The selection of 7 finalists for two separate healthcare challenges culminate phase 1 of the GHIC program and set the stage for phase 2 starting next week. Phase 2, and the entire program, will conclude with a ‘Forward Pitch’ on October 29th when finalists will present their solutions designed specifically to address these challenges to the CEOs of the respective organizations hosting the challenges. Isabelle Magnin, Selection Committee Chair said, “We thank everyone for participating and are impressed by the quality of proposals. We received 21 proposals combined and had a difficult time narrowing down the finalists as all participants had submitted top quality proposals.”

Challenge #1:

Leverage data to proactively identify “rising risk” beneficiaries managed by TC2 using predictive modeling in order to avoid or minimize major healthcare episodes.
