NEW YORK, April 29, 2021 — Twentyeight Health, a telehealth company increasing access to sexual and reproductive healthcare for women from underserved communities, has been recognized as one of the top U.S. startups in the 2021 American Business Awards®. The company received a Silver Stevie® Award in the “Startup of the Year - Consumer Services Industries” category.
The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. In evaluating Twentyeight Health’s nomination for Startup of the Year, one judge commented, “If there is something positive that came out of the pandemic it's the adoption and embracing of telemedicine which serves such a vital function in communities. Really great momentum you have going here [and] excited for what's ahead for Twentyeight Health.”
Twentyeight Health combines asynchronous and live components for telehealth consultations. To sign up for Twentyeight Health, new customers fill out a medical questionnaire online, which a U.S. board-certified doctor reviews within 24 hours. Users can schedule optional audio consultations and message the doctor securely at no extra charge. Twentyeight Health provides ongoing care through unlimited doctor follow up messages to discuss issues such as updating prescriptions or addressing potential side effects.
“As Twentyeight Health vastly expanded its geographic footprint over the last year, we’ve been able to help women from underserved communities across the U.S. access high-quality and affordable sexual and reproductive care,” said Amy Fan, co-founder of Twentyeight Health. “Being named one of the Startups of the Year in the 2021 American Business Awards is a true honor, and this recognition will only drive our team to accomplish more in the months and years to come.”
