CINCINNATI, OH, November 10, 2017 — 10XTS recently partnered with another new Cincinnati-based startup, Checkerboard Health, to present at the Humana Data Jam, a two-day hackathon sponsored by Humana to help them identify potential solutions to new client onboarding and engagement problems within the organization. The event was coordinated by Emily Geiger Draugelis, director of Spry Labs. Spry partners with providers, payors, employers and venture builders to tackle challenges in consumer-driven healthcare.
Checkerboard Health is a startup being launched through the Cincinnati Founder Institute accelerator program, one of the accelerators within the StartupCincy tech startup ecosystem. Checkerboard Health CEO, Fred Hilkowitz, was previously the Director of Project Management at Quest Diagnostics and has a goal to help employers and their employees make more informed decisions about their healthcare expenses. Checkerboard Health combines user’s unique clinical, insurance, and financial data to give personalized recommendations vs. the common, far more generic solutions presently on the market.
10XTS CTO, John Bentley, provided the team with the underlying blockchain architecture methodology. 10XTS is looking forward to more collaboration in the future as Checkerboard Health continues to roll out their solution.
