“We had four great finalists, each able to meaningfully advance TC2’s predictive modeling capabilities for rising risk beneficiaries. We ultimately chose Jvion for their ability to rapidly integrate and enhance our current claims data with extensive insights around key social determinants of health. The result will substantially improve our ability to identify, engage, and assist patients before they require expensive inpatient care ”, said Dale Boylston. 


Challenge #2, centered around pediatric asthma, was presented by Laura Gentry, CEO of Medical Center of Peach County, Navicent Health. The team selected Treks Health as the winner. The goal of this challenge was to create a novel approach to assist children and teenagers managing their asthma


Treks Health is a gamified health management solution that captivates children and parents throughout their journey to develop the skills they need for self-management.
