Curogram Selected as Top 4 Finalist in Publicis Health Media's Disruption Garage Competition  Curogram

LOS ANGELES, July 3, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Curogram, the leading patient-centric universal health messaging platform, today announced it has been selected as a top 4 finalist in Publicis Health Media's nationwide Disruption Garage competition.

As part of the inaugural PHM HealthFront, a live-panel review will gather health industry entrepreneurs together to share their next big ideas, competing for an awards package that will help bring the winning project to life. According to PHM, HealthFront will be a two-day event that brings together inspiring human stories with original content, partnerships and technologies to transform how companies—PHM's clients—identify and deliver solutions.

"We are beyond excited and honored to be selected for this opportunity to share our story and technology with such an esteemed group of industry leaders," said Shayan Nafisi, Co-Founder of Curogram.

The company will present live on stage at HealthFront in front the "Lion's Den" panel of Judges – including Dr. Oz, cardiac surgeon and host of "The Dr. Oz Show;" Martha Stewart, entrepreneur, businesswoman and founder of the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai; Ryan Olohan, managing director of healthcare, Google; Natalie Schneider, vice president, digital health, Samsung; and an audience of more than 400 leading health, lifestyle and tech companies.

With its Disruption Garage competition, Publicis Health Media initiated a nationwide search for the most disruptive and future facing ideas in health, with the ambition to help accelerate innovative products, technology or service solutions that solve some of the world's most pressing health challenges. Curogram's disruptive approach to patient communication turns traditional healthcare software on its head by putting the patient at the center of the communication model, instead of the doctor. As a finalist in the competition, Curogram will have the opportunity to compete live on stage July 16th at the PHM HealthFront for a prize valued at more than $1 million in goods and services from event sponsors and partners, as well as from Publicis Groupe through the Power of One.
