Cleveland Clinic Innovations names winner of 2015 New Ventures Healthcare Challenge

This year marked the third annual New Ventures Healthcare Challenge hosted by Cleveland Clinic Innovations, a challenge for digital health companies around the globe to present novel ideas to disrupt the healthcare market and streamline better care to patients. Cleveland Clinic Innovations named Twiage this year's winner, a prehospital communication solution that triages incoming ambulances.

Twiage is designed to replace radio communication for ambulances going to emergency departments. Paramedics can use the Twiage smartphone app to record and send information on patient conditions, such as capturing stroke symptoms on video, EKGs, photos of trauma scenes and digital voice memos to clinicians at the hospital.

"By advancing the prehospital timeline, Twiage allows hospitals to shave crucial minutes off hospital metrics, such as door-to-CT scanner and door-to-tPA times for stroke," said YiDing Yu, MD, founder and CMO of Twiage.

As the winner of the New Ventures Healthcare Challenge, Twiage will receive consultations from commercialization experts at Cleveland Clinic Innovations and its Innovation Advisory Board, as well as an opportunity to show the product to Cleveland Clinic caregivers.
