Digital Health Institute for Transformation and ASSIST Center Leverage Medallia Crowdicity Platform to Launch Virtual Incubator for Remote Health Monitoring

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Medallia, Inc. (NYSE: MDLA), the global leader in experience management today announced the Digital Health Institute for Transformation (DHIT) and the ASSIST Center are leveraging Medallia Crowdicity to host global crowdsourcing challenges that will advance the state of remote health monitoring. These challenges are part of a larger effort, “COVID-19 Unites Us All”, which will include a virtual incubator (using crowdsourced ideas) and webinars featuring healthcare thought leaders and innovators.

“The time is now to accelerate innovation in remote care through crowdsourced ideas,” said Michael Levy, President of DHIT and co-host of the webinar series. “Great ideas abound, and this program will serve as a vehicle to incubate innovation throughout the crisis and beyond. Prominent digital health organizations are continuing to sign up to support this effort.”

Utilizing Medallia’s Crowdicity, DHIT and ASSIST Center will work with a collection of partners to develop crowdsourced technology, creating a pipeline of innovation to address COVID-19’s evolving needs as well as the needs of our emerging remote care system.

Adam Curry, Director of the Innovation Ecosystem at ASSIST and co-host of the webinar series, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that reliable sources of personal health data are critical to informing effective public health decisions. We are, therefore, excited to be working with DHIT to gather thought leaders in research, wearable health technologies, healthcare, and public health for in-depth explorations of this topic. We also look forward to working with DHIT and other partners to advance new technologies that can address critical health challenges.”

The virtual incubator is now available for public access here.
