Friday evening at Armature Works in Tampa, the organization named 15 finalists and the winners in six different award categories, spotlighting local tech emerging leaders and companies.
Tech Project of the Year (company)
Winner: Edgility Inc., a Tampa-based company that specializes in its outcomes-centric AI platform for workflow management in the healthcare sector. It’s the country’s first AI company platform to bring hospital-level care to people’s homes. It has a partnership with the University of South Florida to help address the gap in the shortage of nurses.
Hospital-at-Home programs have been shown to improve clinical outcomes, reduce recovery times and increase both patient and provider satisfaction. At-home patients experience fewer complications and generate stronger ties to their primary providers.
Our platform freed up 996 hospital bed days at University Hospitals, Cleveland.
This project has a profound impact during public health emergencies to help alleviate hospital patient surges. Acute care delivery at home can allow high-risk patients to receive hospital-level care at home while reducing their potential exposure.
Acute care delivery at home can also be a long-term strategy to allow patients more flexibility in where they receive their care, providing equivalent or superior care in the comfort of their homes.
