Smart Clinic has been selected to participate in the 2017 Healthbox Studio, a five-day cohort program designed for emerging, early stage digital health companies.

Smart Clinic will join nine other companies from across the country in the five-day program designed to support and advance entrepreneurial innovation, aligning with the Healthbox mission to empower the reinvention of healthcare. The program accelerates emerging digital health companies by fostering relationships between startup founders and industry leaders.

“Healthbox is excited to welcome this exceptional group of entrepreneurs to the 2017 Studio program,” said Neil Patel, President of Healthbox. “We look forward to helping each company navigate through this crucial stage and guide their path to continued success.”

Healthbox works with leading healthcare organizations to develop and support innovation strategies through consulting and fund management services. The company was founded in 2010 as one of the world's first healthcare accelerators and evolved into a healthcare innovation services firm in 2015.

“We are very excited to be selected to the Healthbox Studio program. Our involvement is another critical step forward in our growth.” said Robert Backie, Smart Clinic CEO. “Healthbox provides us access to industry leading mentoring and learning from those who have been there and done that.”

Smart Clinic’s effectiveness continues to be validated by medical care providers, with a clinically-proven 35% improvement in patient preparation. An extraordinary industry achievement, this improvement in patient preparation has resulted in a growing number of endorsements from leading gastroenterology doctors and organizations, including the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG). ACG has selected Smart Clinic as their official patient engagement application and continued to promote the platform to their more than 13,000 members nationwide.
