Bringing Innovative Software Development and Technologies to Transform Healthcare

[Durham, NC, June 28, 2019]  DHIT (Digital Health Institute for Transformation) is pleased to announce that Durham-based CrossComm will join a growing list of organizations dedicated to increasing innovation in the healthcare industry by highlighting new software and services that are built to engage patients and consumers.

Through dynamic web, mobile, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) applications and experiences, CrossComm delivers interactive user experiences that increase consumers’ understanding of their healthcare needs, therapeutic options, healthcare literacy, and adherence to medical guidelines and protocols.

“CrossComm is the perfect ecosystem partner for DHIT as we look to develop digital health talent and capabilities and transform North Carolina through our next generation education and research platform,” said Michael Levy, DHIT President.

“They have been developing mobile, web, and immersive apps for over 20 years and were recently recognized as the #1 AR/VR app developer in the Southeast according to Their team’s dedication to innovation and quality execution, particularly in the field of AR/VR, has allowed CrossComm to partner with healthcare leaders like Duke, UNC, Karmanos Cancer Institute and RTI International. Now combine that with their experience working with leading consumer brands like LG, Forbes and Visa, and CrossComm is poised to impact healthcare by driving key behaviors that lead to improved health outcomes.”

The Accenture 2019 Digital Health Consumer Survey reveals a market shift in the United States. Healthcare consumers today are changing, and their expectations for convenience, affordability and quality are redefining how they engage at each stage of care. Younger consumers are not satisfied with healthcare’s status quo and consumers of all generations are more willing to try non-traditional services. Non-traditional healthcare, such as virtual care and retail walk-in clinics, is gaining in popularity and use.

Don Shin, Founder and CEO of CrossComm added, DHIT has been a consistent champion for the advancement of digital health in our local community and beyond – and we have been really impressed with their reach, ambition, and commitment to building the digital health ecosystem for the benefit of all. As a company committed to social impact and transformative technology innovation, we are delighted to support DHIT and partner with them to find new ways to improve the health of our society through AR/VR, wearables, machine learning and other emerging innovations.”
