Congratulations to QuiO which has been named the inaugural Innovation Champion of the Accenture HealthTech Innovation Challenge.

We would also like to congratulate CaptureProof and UE LifeSciences which were recognized as Top Innovators.

Thank you to the more than 500 startups from around the world who submitted applications and demonstrated how their innovative technology and business models help improve the way people access and manage healthcare.
