Interwell Health, a physician-centered organization dedicated to reimagining kidney care, announced that it has been crowned the winner of the 2022 UCSF Digital Health Awards in the Best in Class Consumer Prevention category. The UCSF Digital Health Awards, now in its fourth year, recognizes innovative companies that are improving healthcare through the use of technology. The winners were selected from hundreds of nominees by a panel of judges including healthcare investors, executives, innovators, and academics.
“We are honored that Interwell Health has received this recognition from UCSF Health Hub alongside so many other changemakers in healthcare,” says Robert Sepucha, CEO of Interwell Health. “It is real validation for all of our clinicians, engineers and product designers who are imagining a better way of partnering with nephrologists and engaging kidney patients to help them live their best lives. I’d like to congratulate all of the other nominees for their work in transforming healthcare, and we thank UCSF Health Hub for the validation of the path we are on here at Interwell Health.”
Interwell Health was recognized for its technology that helps payers and providers intervene in chronic kidney disease early, providing support for patients that helps them manage the progression of the disease. Joining Interwell Health as finalists in the Best in Class Consumer Prevention category were Lark Health, Welldoc Health, and Omada Health. The winners were selected by an expert team of judges in the healthcare and VC industries.
“As the winner of the Consumer Prevention category, Interwell Health is truly the best of the best and changing the face of healthcare,” said Mark H. Goldstein, Chairman of the UCSF Health Hub and General Partner at venture capital firm Builders VC. “This year our submissions grew 30% to over 1,250 incredible early and late-stage digital health, health IT, device, and diagnostic companies worldwide. These award winners represent an elite group leading a new way forward in healthcare prevention and delivery.”
This award comes at a time of significant momentum for Interwell Health, the company formed in August by the three-way merger of Cricket Health, Fresenius Health Partners, and Interwell Health. Last month, Interwell Health announced a joint initiative with a respected health plan to integrate care coordination services and enhance education and self-management strategies for members with chronic kidney disease and end-stage kidney disease. In September, the company enhanced its kidney care capabilities by adding Acumen Physician Solutions, the leading provider of electronic health record and patient management software designed especially for nephrologists caring for people living with chronic kidney disease.
Sepucha is scheduled to speak at HLTH on November 15 at 4 p.m. PST on the Newsroom Stage. Sepucha will discuss the expanded capacity of InterWell Health due to the recent merger and share new company updates.
