MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - April 18, 2017) - Wellframe was announced today as one of the healthcare industry's 50+ Innovation Leaders, an AARP initiative administered by MedCity News to recognize entrepreneurs, companies and ideas behind innovative new products and services for Americans aged 50 and older.
The winners of the inaugural 50+ Innovation Leaders program were revealed today during the AARP Innovation@50+ Live Pitch event by representatives of MedCity News and AARP.
"AARP works to empower people to choose how they live as they age," said Jeffrey Makowka, AARP's director of market innovation. "We are pleased to join MedCity News in showcasing entrepreneurs who are driving change and improvements in the healthcare industry for the more than 100 million Americans aged 50 and older. We congratulate the remarkable winners who have been recognized by their peers for their innovation leadership."
Wellframe works with health plans and at-risk providers to transform care management services and improve cost savings. Its technology and services help to optimally extend existing care management systems and resources to provide members with ongoing guidance and support. Wellframe's data-driven approach delivers proven results including improved member experience, reduced medical spend and increased efficiency.
"We're honored to have been selected as a 50+ Innovation Leader," said Jacob Sattelmair, Wellframe CEO. "At Wellframe, we focus on enabling health plans and providers to extend their existing care management services to individuals with a higher level of clinical need- and many of those are in the AARP demographic. We're very pleased to be able to help those individuals get the care and emotional support they need, when and where they need it."
In late 2016, MedCity News and AARP issued a call for nominations for entrepreneurs, investors, companies and nonprofit collaborations. Determined by a reader vote, the winners include leaders and companies offering healthcare delivery, medication management and smart wearables.
