Impact of a Medicaid Innovation Challenge
Pyx Health and the 2019 Arizona Medicaid Innovation Challenge
Pyx Health is the first loneliness and social isolation technology solution serving health plan populations who have historically been forgotten by technology: Medicaid and Medicare members.
The One-Year Impact
Being selected to be one of the finalists in the Arizona Medicaid Innovation Challenge was a game-changer for Pyx Health. It raised the profile of the company significantly within the state of Arizona and provided a forum for all of the MCOs to come together to identify solutions that were relevant to their members and their plan.
Simply by making it through the rigorous process of becoming a finalist, Pyx Health built credibility among the C-suite executives who attended the presentations
Increase in meetings
Following the Challenge, the Pyx team had Executive Level meetings with every MCO in Arizona
Increase in Contracts
Many of the plans Pyx met with conducted evaluations; and, subsequently, several are now contracting with Pyx
Pyx Health is expecting to double its revenue this year and grow from 22 to 40 employees
Sustaining the Impact
Pyx has clients in Arizona, North Carolina and is in serious talks with health plans in Kentucky, Texas, Ohio, and Tennessee.
