Health for America

Health for AmericaXLerateHealth is partnering with Health for America to incubate, test, and launch applications specifically focused on chronic conditions among communities in Louisville, KY.  Health for America is a unique fellowship program that is carefully structured to use the principles of entrepreneurship, innovation, and human centered design to create the greatest impact on the health of communities.

In 2013, Health for America Fellows leveraged the presence of XLerateHealth and one of its Affiliate companies, Asthmapolis, to develop applications to improve clinical outcomes in asthma that are community-based and patient-centered, integrating concepts from human centered design and lean startup methodologies.

Health for America Fellows conducted an environmental scan of mobile solutions that address the needs of target patients and communities suffering from asthma in Louisville. Utilizing user and community-based feedback, the Fellows made recommendations on improving solutions and ways to measure efficacy on meaningful metrics.
