Houston, Texas (April 30, 2018) – Vivante Health announced today that it will compete for the Innovators Award during the Minnesota Health Action Group’s 11th Annual Employer Leadership Summit May 11 at the Westin Galleria, Edina, MN.
Vivante Health will demonstrate the first and only digestive health solution, GIThrive® , to more than 200 Minnesota employers, health care experts, and health care companies who are expected to attend the Summit and who will vote to determine the winner of the annual Innovators Award. The award is presented to a company that offers a breakthrough solution with the potential to positively impact health care delivery and outcomes. The winner is determined by popular vote during the Innovators Showcase at the Summit.
“Minnesota has a strong tradition of leadership in health care and our Innovators Showcase shines a light on companies that are going beyond the expected to deliver new solutions for people across Minnesota and nationwide,” said Carolyn Pare, president and CEO of The Action Group. “The Showcase gives health care stakeholders the chance to understand some of the latest and greatest health care innovations and allows them to ask questions and provide feedback directly to these entrepreneurs. We are excited to welcome Vivante Health to this year’s Showcase.”
The theme for 2018 Summit, “A new lens: Purpose-driven solutions for optimal health,” will highlight approaches to the opioid epidemic, the new science behind obesity, the impact of compassion in the workplace and steps to live your best life.
“We, at Vivante Health, are delighted to present to the Minnesota Health Action Group. There are over 70 million Americans with digestive disorders, twice the number of people compared to diabetes. Vivante Health has created a first and only solution that provides 24/7 coordinated care to these individuals, at the touch of a button. We love to partner with such a forward-looking organization like the Minnesota Health Action Group and hope to work with many Minnesota employers, to improve employee health outcomes and reduce the costs of healthcare,” said Kimon Angelides, CEO of Vivante Health.
