NEW YORK (February 1, 2023) – Yuvo Health, a leading technology-enabled administrative and managed-care solution for community health centers, today announced that it has been named to the New York Digital Health 100 (DH100), a recognition that highlights the most innovative startups in the New York region. Digital Health New York (DHNY) publishes the annual list as part of the New York Healthcare Innovation Report, a comprehensive analysis that takes an in-depth look at the data, trends, and people that have propelled New York to become the capital of healthcare innovation.
“Since launching our company at the height of the pandemic, we have always felt incredibly supported and inspired by DHNY’s commitment to the robust healthcare community in New York,” said Cesar Hererra, Yuvo Health’s CEO and co-founder, who is part of a fully BIPOC founding team. “Being named to the DH100 among our industry-leading colleagues is especially rewarding, knowing we’re connected to New York’s most innovative organizations and leaders who are making the biggest difference in healthcare.”
Now in its fourth year, the DH100 has doubled the number of applicants compared to 2022. With this explosive growth, the scope of the list greatly expanded, and now represents 35 new companies; counts 12 unicorns among its ranks; has 23 organizations that are led by female CEOs; and 37 of the companies on the list raised $1.6B in 2022.
“In 2023, the New York Digital Health 100 includes an incredibly diverse, innovative, and forward-thinking set of companies and leaders that are making an impact on the future of healthcare,” said Bunny Ellerin, Co-Founder and CEO, DHNY. “On behalf of the entire New York healthcare ecosystem, we are delighted to spotlight these organizations, support their growth, and applaud them for their meaningful contributions to improving healthcare.”
In 2022, Yuvo Health partnered with PCDC to provide FQHCs with access to support services and new revenue streams through upside risk contracts. Last summer, they partnered with Fidelis Care to announce the submission of a value-based payment contract to the NYS Department of Health that supports affordable care to historically marginalized populations. In early 2022, Yuvo Health announced four FQHCs that have joined their independent provider association (IPA): Long Island Select Healthcare, Metro Community Health Centers, Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center, and Advantage Care Health Centers. To learn more about Yuvo Health and their programs for community health centers, click here.
