The contest judges included more than 70 healthcare leaders across government and private sectors.
Amy Cummings, MBA, MSN, RN, emocha’s senior vice president of business development and client success, delivered a pitch that conveyed emocha’s ability to help health plans improve clinical and pharmacy metrics and engage members.
