The Californer/10276637

LOS ANGELES - Californer -- ScaleHealth, a leading Healthtech Innovation Marketplace, is thrilled to announce a strategic alliance with the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) to drive forward healthcare innovation. Building on the momentum of their previous collaborations, this alliance  marks a significant milestone in the quest to revolutionize healthcare delivery and enhance patient outcomes.

As a cornerstone of this strategic alliance, ScaleHealth and CHIME are proud to launch the 3rd CHIME & ScaleHealth Innovation Challenge.  This challenge follows the success of their first challenge, which focused on innovative solutions to patient engagement, and the second challenge, which addressed crippling staffing problems.  The 3rd challenge, focused on nursing innovation, aims to address critical issues faced by nurses, including administrative burden, care delivery, and safety concerns. By harnessing the power of technology and innovation, the Challenge seeks to empower nurses, elevating their voice and role in improving quality of care and shaping the future of care delivery.

"We are excited to join forces with CHIME to catalyze innovation in nursing," said Taylor McPartland, CEO at ScaleHealth. "Nurses play a vital role in healthcare delivery, and it's imperative that we provide them with the tools and support they need to excel in their roles. Through this partnership and the Innovation Challenge, we hope to foster collaboration and drive meaningful change in the healthcare industry."

The CHIME & ScaleHealth Nursing Innovation Challenge invites startups and innovators to submit solutions aimed at reducing administrative burden, enhancing care delivery, and improving safety for nurses and patients. Selected finalists will have the opportunity to showcase their solutions at the CHIME Innovation Summit, where they can connect with healthcare leaders and potential partners.

"We are delighted to collaborate with ScaleHealth on this important initiative," said Keith Fraidenburg, Chief Operating & Innovation Officer at CHIME. "Nurses are at the forefront of patient care, and it's essential that we support them with innovative solutions that address their unique challenges. By bringing together technology innovators, healthcare leaders, and frontline providers, we can drive positive change and bring the voice of nursing to the center stage of healthcare innovation."

Looking ahead, ScaleHealth and CHIME are excited to continue this collaboration with more challenges focused on addressing critical areas across the entire digital health ecosystem.
