Founding Partner: Voxiva, Inc.

Founded in 2001, Voxiva is a global pioneer in delivering interactive mobile health services. We leverage the world’s 5 billion mobile phones to communicate and interact with people to help them live healthier lives. All of our patient engagement services incorporate social marketing approaches and evidenced-based best practices to deliver highly effective and engaging solutions. These services combine multiple technologies—SMS text messaging, interactive voice, email, mobile apps, devices, and the web—to support prevention and wellness, disease management, adherence, and more.

Voxiva’s programs support a broad range of health topics such as maternal & child health, smoking cessation, and diabetes self-management. In early 2010, Voxiva and its partners launched text4baby, an award-winning educational service for pregnant women and new moms that is now the largest mobile health service in the United States. Text4baby is built on and managed through Voxiva’s robust platform, and is delivered as a free-to-end-user service through the support of all major U.S. mobile carriers. Text4baby partners include the National Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition, Voxiva, U.S. Government, the CTIA – Wireless Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, and Grey Healthcare Group. The broad private-public partnership is comprised of over 500 organizations in all 50 states that have joined the text4baby coalition to promote the service.

Voxiva deploys its services on a hosted, managed Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis, and we adhere to the highest industry security standards to protect the privacy of end users. Many products have been set up as multi-lingual applications. Our platform also provides robust data analytics for research and evaluation purposes.

In 2011, Fast Company recognized Voxiva as one of the 50 Most Innovative Companies in the world, and #3 on the list of most innovative companies in the Mobile industry and the Health Care industry. Voxiva has extensive global experience having delivered services in 16 countries.
