S.O.L.V.E. Health Tech Summit

The Medicaid population is the largest untapped market for health information technology, with more than $500 billion spent annually. Despite massive investments in health technology, Americans are still dying from preventable diseases.

The companies that figure out how to truly reach low-income, diverse populations with health technology will finally move the needle towards reducing health expenditures and improving health outcomes. 

As public health, information technology, health systems, and communications experts, we are looking to find and support the next generation of companies that are going to reduce chronic care costs by billions of dollars for Medicaid patients. S.O.L.V.E. Health Tech partnered with the UCSF Health Hub to host the S.O.L.V.E. Health Tech Summit on May 21, 2019. The first of its kind, the S.O.L.V.E. Health Tech Summit convened the nation's leading digital health companies, funders, and innovators.
