Pain points that clinicians face in their day-to-day work include inaccurate data and inconvenience of additional steps as they interact with various technologies.
We seek solutions that result in the accurate and efficient use of data to improve clinic workflow, enhance patient engagement, and to reduce clinician burnout.
The Cambia Grove TRAILS Competition provides promising startups access to real world testing and application within the health care system to gain knowledge of how the system works. Through this experience, startups can iterate on their solution to make it a lean, high value product. For our upcoming fall competition, we have partnered with University of Washington’s Primary Care Innovation Lab to search for innovations in primary care settings.
