Date:7/23/2013

NEW YORK, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) today announced the winners of Innovate Health Tech NYC, a competition designed to promote innovation within New York City's health technology sector.  Innovate Health Tech NYC, an initiative of NYCEDC sponsored by Janssen Healthcare Innovation (JHI), recognizes early-stage health technology companies and entrepreneurs tackling pressing issues affecting human health. On Wednesday, July 10th, ten finalists met at WeWork Lounge in NYC to pitch their pre-commercial, prototype stage technologies to a panel of expert judges and 150 members of the healthcare and tech communities. Three of these companies received Third, Second and Grand Prizes worth $50,000 in total.

The winning companies were:

  • Grand Prize ($25,000): Kinsa works at the intersection of technology, design, and healthcare to create the world's first real-time map of human health. The company's first product is a smartphone-connected thermometer. The Kinsa Smart Thermometer helps users track their illness history, share that with physicians, manage and plan around their illness, and view the "health weather" in their local area.
  • 2nd Place ($15,000): Oculogica has discovered the Rosetta Stone to decipher what the brain is saying through the language of eye movements. This discovery has led the company to develop a low-cost, software-based diagnostic that will provide a safe, non-invasive and mobile test to diagnose the extent of concussion and a broad spectrum of other diseases' states. Oculogica's test will significantly improve patient care by providing better information than the current standard of care, which is more costly and invasive.
  • 3rd Place ($10,000): AdhereTech has cr
