CHICAGO, Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ContextMedia announced today that it will change its name to Outcome Health, a name that represents the company's aspiration to activate the best health outcome possible for every person in the world.
ContextMedia was founded in 2006 by Rishi Shah and Shradha Agarwal, who continue to lead the firm. In its early years, the company built a digital healthcare information network, bringing relevant and actionable media to patients nationwide living with a chronic condition. Over time, the company created a technology platform designed to transform the communication of health conditions and treatment options between patients and physicians. Today, the platform includes a 32" custom-manufactured tablet for the physicians with 3D anatomical models and other clinical reference materials, a patient tablet with video-based education on lifestyle changes and interactive health assessments for early diagnosis and several other engagement tools.
"Data insights and our technology platform now give us the ability to not just create awareness of healthcare solutions, but take it one step further to activate patients into personalized solutions that deliver the best health outcome possible for them," said Shradha Agarwal, President and Co-Founder. "With nearly 18 percent of the U.S. GDP spent on healthcare today, the proven improvement in health outcomes through our technology platform has an impact on our economy and society as a whole."
This week, the company also announced the launch of its Clinical Trials R&D solution, enabling life sciences companies and healthcare providers a new way to use the Outcome Health platform to recruit clinical trial volunteers in the consultation setting, and accelerate innovation for therapies and cures.
In 2016, Outcome Health acquired AccentHealth, doubling its footprint and network platform. Outcome Health plans to introduce its technology platform in all of these healthcare locations to drive critical conversations and important decisions, impacting 500M patient visits annually.
"Outcome Health is aligning and expanding our mission to improve clinical, industry and patient outcomes through technology," said Rishi Shah, CEO and Founder. "Our new name solidifies a commitment to activate the best health outcome possible for every person in the world."
