Phoenix, AZ – June 5, 2019 – Solera Health, a company committed to changing lives by guiding people to better health in their communities, has been named “Best Overall MedTech Company” by MedTech Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global health and medical technology market. Judges selected Solera based on the proven success of its technology platform that matches people to the highest quality, evidence-based digital applications and in-person community resources. This consumer-first approach, combined with performance-based payments through medical claims, has transformed a previously chaotic landscape into a personalized approach tailored to each person’s unique health needs and goals.
The Phoenix, Arizona-based high-growth company has established a unique position within the healthcare industry through its unique marketplace and payment innovation model that allows health plans and employers to leverage a broad network of community and digital providers paid through medical claims for achieving clinical outcomes. Most recently, Solera raised $42 million in health plan-driven capital infusion led by HCSC Ventures to expand the impact of its novel marketplace model to include social determinants of health (SDOH.) The evolution of the network model will allow Solera to continue to innovate by fully addressing food insecurity, medically-tailored meals, transportation, falls prevention, social isolation, and more.
“Solera Health experienced a breakthrough year with several significant milestones that continue to drive the company’s explosive growth,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “From key additions to its leadership team, a strategic SDOH partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield Institute as well as their recent Series C funding from health plans, Solera is on an impressive track and we are thrilled to recognize the company for their innovation and leadership in the fields of holistic and digital health.”
