Durham medtech startup Validic receives kudos for virtual care technology

DURHAM – Durham medtech startup Validic has been named the winner of its “Best Hospital Technology Implementation” award as part of the annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards.

As part of its winning entry, it partnered with a leading integrated delivery network (IDN) to deploy a centralized remote patient monitoring (RPM) program called Validic Impact. In less than 24 months, the program added over 30,000 patients.

The solution provides a “disease-agnostic approach” to virtual care, MedTech said, allowing a health system to deploy programs addressing diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, via a single deployment and platform.

“Using the patients’ authorized, home health data and a simple analytics engine, the solution makes sophisticated RPM functionality available within the existing clinical workflow, such as the electronic health record (EHR),” per its release.

“Validic is delivering a “breakthrough” and one-of-a-kind remote monitoring platform that is demonstrating real-world results and improving patients’ lives,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough.

More than ever, keeping patients healthy at home is a critical function of our nation’s health care institutions,” said Validic CEO Drew Schiller, in a statement. “Using personal health data, we’re empowering providers with the tools they need to safely and accurately monitor patients at scale.”

The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more.

This year’s program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.

Founded in 2010, Validic offers solutions by delivering data from hundreds of home health devices into existing clinical workflows, health applications, or wellness programs.
