About Accenture:

Accenture works with clients through growing customer expectations, market-shaping AI, and self-optimizing systems. The post-digital age shows no signs of slowing down, and the need for new ideas powered by intelligent technologies has never been greater.

But a vision for the future can't be realized without know-how. We partner with our clients to drive real innovation—the kind that turns an idea into an industry—helping them transform and grow their organizations.

The Opportunity:

Accenture is looking for the best, most innovative startups across North America to compete in a challenge focused on solutions for health organizations. The HealthTech Innovation Challenge supports innovative technologies and drives creative solutions to improve the way people access and manage health care.

Health organizations are defined as public health entities, private payers, provider systems, delivery networks, retail health companies and organizations that participate in the health care delivery and payment ecosystem. Solutions should focus on the following areas:

  • Operational efficiency: Increase enterprise efficiency and core day-to-day processes. Examples include “back office” solutions, patient, data and distribution management.

  • Increased access: Expand access to services and treatments. Examples include virtual care, digital therapeutics, home and remote health care delivery models.

  • Consumer experience: Create positive consumer experiences. Examples include solutions that improve wellbeing, care coordination, disease prevention and chronic condition management.

The application process is open to all companies, regardless of size, provided you meet the following criteria:

  • You are a growth stage company where access to executive feedback is critical to your business

  • You have (at minimum) a beta product to demonstrate and are prepared to share access to program partners under NDA (and where reasonable, for no additional cost)

  • If selected to participate, you can attend one of the regional events in Boston on November 7, 2019 or San Francisco on December 5, 2019 to present your solution

  • If selected as a finalist, you can attend the final event in Houston on February 6, 2020 to present your solution

Deadline to Apply: 9/22
