Watch the Recordings from the Remote Patient Monitoring Innovation Challenge

Building thought leadership and value on behalf of State Medicaid programs and Managed Care Organizations. 

Adaptation Health is a buyer-side incubator program developing and building thought leadership and value on behalf of State Medicaid programs and Managed Care Organizations. We match market need and Medicaid priorities against market-product fit. 

We work with Medicaid plans and State Medicaid Directors fostering innovation, de-risking ventures, cultivating reimbursement policy dialogue, and promoting effective deal flow and capital into Medicaid focused ventures.

Through Medicaid Innovation Challenges we focus on connecting Medicaid Officers, Managed Care Organizations and entrepreneurs.  By defining the problems, creating a national call for application, and selecting the best market-ready ventures, we are creating a system to improve Medicaid.

Our mission
Create Product-Market Fit
We are passionate about companies that can improve the health outcomes of the 76M+ Medicaid beneficiaries across the country.
Generate Cost Savings and Growth
Equally as important is the opportunity for ventures to generate cost savings in Medicaid. This is critical for sustainable growth.
