What is Olive Helps and what does it do? 

Olive Helps is a lightweight desktop application that lives on your computer and surfaces real-time intelligence — right when you need it. Acting as an AI coworker, Olive Helps bridges the gap between work and wisdom by surfacing vital information to healthcare workers at the right time — increasing their efficiency and accuracy while decreasing the administrative burden and risk of human errors.

What is a Loop?

Loops are analogous to apps in an app store; they are programs that work on the Olive Helps platform to provide real-time intelligence to users. Loops are created and built by technology partners and health systems, and they are available to purchase on the Loop Library.

How do I build a Loop?

Loops can be built by using the Loop Development Kit (LDK). For additional information on how to build Loops, watch the Loop Building Master Class.

What is Hack for Health?

Hack for Health is a competition for developers to build Loops (think apps in an app store) that will change the way healthcare employees work by improving efficiency, reducing the scope for errors and burnout, and enhancing productivity with the ultimate goal to optimize patient experience. 

What are the prizes?

Cash prizes of up to $10,000: Judges will rank the top 40 approved Loops into one of four tiers that will determine cash prize value.

  • Tier 1: $10,000
  • Tier 2: $5,000
  • Tier 3: $2,500

Our customers are talking.

"I like to think of this transformation as a win-win-win situation; the physicians are satisfied with the increased efficiency and ease of interacting with the hospital, patients are receiving their care in a timely fashion and the hospital is performing better financially."

Jon Shaker
New England Baptist Hospital

"Olive has fully delivered everything they said they would deliver to us. They've met our timelines, were very attentive during the entire process of the build, quick to respond back, worked through any issues together. Everything that needed to be resolved was resolved timely and for go-live, they were fantastic with my team (end users) doing the day to day. Anything we need to make sure my team was successful, they were there for."

Jamie Madrinich
Essentia Health

“Prior authorization was taking clinical staff away from patient care and severely impacting our bottom line. Olive met and exceeded all of our expectations.”
