NEW YORK, December 22, 2021 — Today, the Healthcare Technology Report named Sebastian Seiguer, CEO and co-founder of emocha Health, the leading digital medication adherence health company, to its Top 25 Consumer HealthTech Executives of 2021. The prestigious list recognizes executives who have leveraged their experience, expertise, and leadership skills to make an impact on healthcare worldwide. This year’s nominees were assessed on several factors, including depth of knowledge, industry reputation, and career achievements.

“At emocha, we strive to provide the most innovative and engaging digital remote therapeutic monitoring program to help patients take their medications properly every day,” said Sebastian Seiguer. “I am humbled that the company’s mission is being recognized by my peers.”

The Baltimore-based digital medication adherence company spun out of Johns Hopkins University in 2014. Patients use emocha’s HIPAA-compliant mobile app to video record themselves taking their medication, report potential side effects or symptoms, and communicate with members of the emocha care team. 

Recent rule changes by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will make emocha accessible to an even wider range of patients. Starting January 1, 2022, CMS will reimburse providers for Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM), and emocha’s medication adherence program qualifies as an RTM solution.
