Last week, a crowd of more than 250 people gathered at the historic State Theater in Falls Church, Virginia., for a first-hand look at tomorrow’s healthcare technology in action today. The occasion uniting the group was the 2016 Federal Health IT Challenge and Innovation Awards, a competition that asks participants to solve some of the most critical issues facing federal healthcare agencies today.
For the 20 organizations competing in the final round, including BioIQ, the evening was an opportunity to present innovative solutions to leaders from the federal government. Solutions covered an array of relevant healthcare topics, including healthcare pricing transparency, digital engagement, analytics and security.
BioIQ was honored to be selected as a finalist in two areas. The first focused on how the BioIQ technology platform enables government agencies to streamline wellness programs, increase engagement and help veterans, service members and government employees achieve their health goals. In addition, we were commended for how our platform aids agencies including the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in improving quality and closing gaps in care within their member populations, leading to improved HEDIS scores, Star and QRS Ratings.
The evening also featured a panel discussion among leaders from across the federal health sector, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Defense’s Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center. The panelists emphasized the importance of engaging in a partnership to bring innovation to the government sector to increase productivity and reduce costs for some of their largest programs.
If you weren’t able to attend the event, you can still get a behind-the-scenes look at how BioIQ is evolving the way health measurement works.
