Curio-ITM, is an AI-Analytics tool that predicts/stratifies pregnant women pre-delivery/third trimester at risk for depression.  MamaliftTM, FDA Class 1 software used by Moms: leveraging gamification/CBT and health coaches for management of anxiety, mood disorders and postpartum depression (PPD).
  • Movn Health, based in Irvine, California, is a leading telehealth provider for remote cardiac rehab and prevention. In partnership with health plans and providers, they close cardiovascular care gaps with an evidence-based approach.

Point32Health initiated this challenge to facilitate discovery, development, and implementation of innovative solutions that improve health care for its members and communities, increase affordability, and improve the overall healthcare experience.
