This program will support innovative technologies and drive creative solutions to improve the way people access and manage healthcare.
The Accenture HealthTech Innovation Challenge has been created to recognize early stage start-up businesses that can play a major role in improving the way people around the world manage their health and associated costs.
The program from Accenture’s Life Sciences and Health practices brings together innovative startups with many of the largest life sciences companies and healthcare providers to tackle some of the world’s greatest health challenges including access, affordability and transparency.
