Benecure competed in the PACT (Greater Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies) Healthcare App Challenge against an international cohort of competitors with companies from as far as Germany and VC backed finalists. The competition was sponsored by Independence Blue Cross.
We created a patient management portal from scratch, to help case managers deal with a large number of patients efficiently, we also created a patient facing app that connects with smart devices to help patients proactively manage their chronic condition.
Benecure has expanded to manage diabetes apart from the current cardiovascular diseases we already manage. 80% of Diabetics will eventually die from coronary heart diseases and it made sense for us to include this disease for our users.
At the PACT competition, Benecure won first prize which includes $30,000 in cash, in addition to meetings with investors, experienced entrepreneurs and direct access with Independence Blue Cross. Benecure also won the Validic API Award, for a startup that can have a large impact by using their services, this prize included $5,000 in Validic API credit.
