The list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today’s fast-changing world. This year’s MIC list features 434 businesses from 39 countries.
“Digital health is a new aspect of care delivery and many organizations are still figuring out the best way to incorporate these tools,” said Mike McSherry, CEO and co-founder of Xealth. “In creating Xealth, we saw an opportunity to partner with health systems and help them optimize their investments in digital assets so they can reach their clinical and operational goals. We are thrilled to be recognized as a Most Innovative Company by Fast Company.”
With doctors having access to tools beyond medications – adding trackers, meal delivery services, digital therapeutics, patient education, home monitoring devices and more to treatment plans – healthcare organizations need to place a strategy around their use. How do health systems easily integrate digital health tools within existing workflows, make sure only needed patient data is sent, identify which options are covered by payers and show data around what is helping patients?
Xealth has created a platform for digital health that enables health systems to easily integrate, deploy and scale digital health programs for measurable results. It is the first company to integrate digital solutions within the doctor’s current workflow, so time is not spent toggling between systems, and information flows back from the patient into the same place, making this a complete, two-way interaction between doctor and patient. Xealth currently connects more than 30 digital health partners, including Amazon, Welldoc, Healthwise, ResMed, and SilverCloud.
To date, more than 500,000 programs, services, and videos, plus over 61,000 remote monitoring and devices have been prescribed through Xealth, and that figure is constantly increasing.
Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the most groundbreaking businesses on the planet and across myriad industries. They also judged nominations received through their application process.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
“At a time of increasing global volatility, this year’s list showcases the resilience and optimism of businesses across the world. These companies are applying creativity to solve challenges within their industries and far beyond,” said Fast Company senior editor Amy Farley, who oversaw the issue with deputy editor David Lidsky.
Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2020) is now available online, as well as in app form via iTunes and on newsstands beginning March 17, 2020. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
