CVS Health Partners with 1776 Startup Community

Philadelphia, PA, February 6, 2020 – Today, 1776 announces their partnership with CVS Health. This collaboration will bring highly curated, innovative, health-focused programming to 1776’s entrepreneurial focused incubator and workspaces in the Philadelphia region.

“For many of us, health care can be difficult to navigate. Chronic disease continues to grow in prevalence and impact, while patients face complexities and fragmentation when seeking the right care. Improving health outcomes starts with transforming the consumer health experience, connecting with people in their communities,” says CVS Health’s, Katherine Yacko.

CVS Health has a vision of transforming the consumer health care experience, empowering patients to achieve better health outcomes through data-driven insights and innovative community-based retail health care and digital tools.

1776 is excited to partner with CVS Health to highlight startup companies working to create solutions to help people on their path to better health.

Together, 1776 and CVS Health will work to complement their knowledge centers to provide additional resources, experts and programming to support early stage startups in an effort to transform the healthcare industry. This partnership with CVS Health is forged from a common belief in the power of ideas, innovation, tech, conversation, and the empowerment of individuals to effectuate change.
