Colorado health companies compete in $150,000 pitch contest

DENVER — Six companies, including one from Boulder, are finalists in the 2017 Prime Health Challenge by The Colorado Health Foundation and will pitch their ideas on Oct. 19.

The winning companies, which have been evaluated over the past three months, are competing for a share of a $150,000 prize and the chance to prove their solutions in real-life clinical settings.

The Prime Health Challenge has gone on for four years, over which time it has seen 140 companies and launched 15 pilots.

The six competing startups are:

  • Boulder- and U.K.-based company Nymbl Science, which has developed a system for measuring, tracking and improving balance to be used by medical professionals or at home.
  • AI Health LLC, a Denver company that has created a software as a service platform to help patients in their post-acute care after the hospital while at home.
  • Cliexa, another Denver company that helps patients track and score their chronic disease activity.
  • Denver-based Listen.MD, which eases data entry for medical providers.
  • Redox, a startup out of Madison, Wis., that provides health systems with a single-access point platform for cloud-based applications.
  • Philadelphia-based Ride Health, a company that provides transportation services to vulnerable patients who have trouble accessing medical care.

The pitch competition starts at 6 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 19, at EXDO in Denver’s RiNo district. Tickets can be purchased online.
