MIAMI, Florida - May 6th 2015 - Sensentia is pleased to announce that it will be participating in the Healthbox Studio commencing on May 6th in Miami, Florida at The Idea Center at Miami Dade College.
Healthbox selected Sensentia for the Studio through a rigorous, competitive process in collaboration with anchor partner GuideWell, the parent company of Florida Blue. Together they selected a total of ten companies based upon their potential impact on care delivery and further advancement of Florida's innovation and economic ecosystems. Through its partnership with GuideWell, Healthbox is rotating the program across Florida with Miami as the new location for 2015. This is the first Florida program using the new Healthbox Studio model and builds upon its successes over the past three years across the state.
Sensentia is providing artificial intelligence solutions in which consumers and providers have real time access to health plan benefit and eligibility information. Sensentia's technology was tested and challenged in a pilot study with a major health plan, the company's benefit and eligibility inquiry system had nearly perfect accuracy in answering member and provider requests. Overall, Sensentia's system had better results than the health plan's call centers which resulted in a significant return on investment.

The evolution of their approach from an accelerator model to a studio concentrating on mature start-ups ready to commercialize their product is the right fit for Sensentia," said Jan Jungclaus, CEO of Sensentia, "We are really looking forward to working with such a strong team as Healthbox.
