GuideWell has launched the COVID-19 Health Innovation Collaborative to identify and support solutions that can immediately increase the scope and scale of resources aimed at reducing the complex stress factors COVID-19 is bringing to bear on the U.S. health system.
There will be five categories of focus under this collaborative, and proposed solutions must directly address at least one of these categories:
- Home-based self-testing solutions for the COVID-19 virus
- Virtual, in-home care solutions for at-risk populations that have limited access to health care services
- Solutions that reduce risk for health care providers in clinical settings, including approaches for increasing protection of clinical staff
- Solutions focused on reducing social isolation due to COVID-19 diagnosis or social distancing
- Solutions for delivering food and urgently needed supplies to at-risk populations and households with COVID-19 exposure or symptoms
The COVID-19 Collaborative’s overarching objective is to source a diverse portfolio of innovative companies that collectively have the potential to respond to the pandemic in the above categories. For each category, a cohort of 3-5 companies will be selected to work together to create a connected, high impact approach to addressing the program category.
If you are an innovator, health tech entrepreneur or researcher with a solution in response to #COVID19, apply today!
Deadline to apply: May 8th, 2020.
