A virtual demo day series for innovations serving Medicaid patient populations during COVID-19 and beyond
Connecting startups addressing critical access and outcomes challenges to Medicaid stakeholders
The COVID-19 health crisis has had a disproportionate impact on vulnerable patient populations, as evidenced by higher infection and morbidity rates among low-income Black, Hispanic, and other minority communities relative to their counterparts. The disparity of COVID-19’s impact underlines the existing challenges experienced by Medicaid patient populations in unequal access to healthcare and SDOH services.
This series of demo days will curate and present ventures that address the acute challenges created by COVID-19 and provide a blueprint for improving access, efficacy, and equity in Medicaid. Companies that are accepted will have the opportunity to pitch their solutions to Medicaid buyers including State Medicaid offices, plan leadership, and key Medicaid experts.
