Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 13, 2016
CO Impact Days and Initiative has announced that RxAssurance won the Health, Wellness and Food Award for Outstanding Social Impact at the CO Impact Days Social Venture Showcase March 4, 2016.
RxAssurance, a prescription optimization company based in Denver, Colo., engages patients and collects data for providers and payers to create healthy prescription medication habits, improve outcomes and decrease unnecessary hospitalizations and doctors’ visits. Their comprehensive pain medication web and mobile platform, OpiSafe, was created to address the growing epidemic of prescribed opioid misuse and abuse.
Sixty ventures, chosen from more than 280 applicants, convened at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts for the inaugural statewide marketplace for impact investing. The chosen social ventures showcased their ability to provide a return on investment while improving Colorado communities. Only the top venture from each of six categories was chosen to present on stage.
“This is the first time in the U.S. that 200 accredited impact investors came together for a statewide marketplace, where they were able to connect with each other, learn, and have intimate access to social ventures representing projects, for profits, nonprofits and funds at any stage of growth,” said Dr. Stephanie Gripne, Founder of the Impact Finance Center and creator of CO Impact Days and Initiative.
“We were thrilled to be selected as the top venture in the Health, Wellness and Food category and to share the stage with five other incredible social ventures,” said Bob Goodman, President and CEO of RxAssurance. “It was an honor to talk about the power of the solutions we offer and our ability to provide a great return on investment.”

RxAssurance believes that technology can make a long lasting, positive impact on the wellbeing of patients. Knowing what happens when a patient leaves their healthcare provider’s office and returns home is a critical missing piece of the healthcare puzzle. Our solutions are designed to address this critical gap, bringing behavioral economics, the psychology of online user interaction and global availability together to keep patients working their way towards healthy habits that ensure safe and effective medication therapy outcomes.
