Award for SNF discharge platform
The Right Place, which is geared to help match post-acute patients to the right place of care, has been named the Grand Prize Winner in the athenahealth ‘More Disruption Please' (MDP) Innovation Challenge.
Judges chose the company over 70 other teams. The goal of the MDP challenge was to attract entrepreneurs to healthcare. The Right Place was “a perfect example of a truly disruptive innovation — one that has the potential to be a game-changer for hospitals and health systems across the country,” said Erin Trimble, head of athenahealth's More Disruption Please Accelerator program.
“As healthcare entrepreneurs, we could not imagine a more exciting partner to be aligned with than the athenahealth team and feel honored that the judges see the impact The Right Place will have on healthcare outcomes and improving efficiency,” says Katherine Chambers, CEO and co-founder of The Right Place. “We feel that our solution aligns perfectly with the athenahealth® Marketplace as athenahealth continues to expand their footprint by providing tools to providers that empower them to better serve their patients.”
