Bayer and TechCode have selected WatchRx (Health Accelerator ’17) for their first U.S. Digital Healthcare Program. WatchRx is the first and only dedicated smartwatch/SaaS solution with all-in-one medication reminders, built-in phone and GPS to support prescription adherence and to improve health outcomes for those managing complex medication regimens.
The Bayer-TechCode partnership is designed to accelerate digitally enabled advances in Pharmaceuticals. Seven start-ups were selected for the inaugural program which culminates on June 15 with a Demo Day in Mountain View, Calif. On that day, WatchRx will present its pitch to an audience of investors as well as representatives from Bayer and TechCode.
“Improved prescription compliance leads to improved health outcomes, slowing progression of conditions ranging from heart disease to Parkinson’s to diabetes. We are honored that Bayer and TechCode see the value in WatchRx’s mission to help patients and consumers live healthier, more independent lives.”
