Avant-garde Health and its CEO Derek Haas Named Health Innovator of the Year
TiE-Boston, the second largest chapter of TiE-Global, the largest global not-for-profit organization fostering entrepreneurship, awarded Avant-garde Health CEO Derek Haas the Health Innovator of the Year award during its 20th Anniversary Gala on December 13th.
Avant-garde Health grows out of the value-based health care delivery research at Harvard Business School led by Professors Michael Porter and Bob Kaplan. Avant-garde Health’s analytics software enables providers to apply concepts from the research to improve care quality and profitability across the care continuum.
“I’m proud of the innovative ways we are helping health care providers,” said Haas. “I am fortunate to be a part of such an inspiring team that is committed to improving the value of care across the country. TiE and its members have been incredibly supportive and generous with their time to help us succeed. We are very appreciative for their recognition, and look forward to helping the Boston entrepreneurial community further strengthen and thrive.”
