myLab Box
With STDs on a dramatic incline (chlamydia, for example, hit the highest numbers ever recorded by the CDC), myLab Box offers the first at-home, easy and affordable - and private - STD testing service with certified results ready in days, without any lab visits or co-pays. And, for consumers who test positive, free same-day treatment phone consults are available. And now, at-home fertility tests, for both men and women, are also available.

Eric Neuner, CEO
Health Coach Institute
It's long been established that unhealthy behavior (poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking, etc.) results in the majority of the chronic diseases driving up America's healthcare costs. In just two-years at the helm of HCI, Eric has transformed the lives of now over 30,000 certified health coaches who promote habit change - first in themselves, then in their clients. The result: healthier lifestyles all around.

Elemeno Health
Frontline healthcare staff frequently are expected to perform perfectly procedures in which they may be a little "rusty."" Too frequently, the misadventures result in downgraded Star ratings, or tragedy. Elemeno Health offers a customized, app-based micro-learning solution that provides frontline staff with app-based, Just-in-Time re/learning tools and resources to improve outcomes with the delivery of best practices.

Mike Epstein, Managing Director
The Tay Group's careKA$H
Overall, out-of-pocket costs rose 12% in 2018, with patients’ co-pays and deductibles totaling $4,659 for an inpatient visit. In response to this dramatic increase, Mike's developed careKA$H, a program that offers an innovative way for employers to help employees cover their deductible and co-pay expenses, improving employee satisfaction, and saving costs for both parties.
