Toronto, ON – Sept. 14, 2023 – SeamlessMD, a leading Digital Care Journey platform for hospitals and health systems, announces that CEO and Co-founder Dr. Joshua Liu has been named a winner in the inaugural Healthcare Innovation 40 Under 40 Awards. This prestigious award recognizes individuals “working in the healthcare industry who are making a significant contribution to their organization’s success.” This year’s cohort of winners comes from all different backgrounds across care delivery, provider and payer organizations, independent consultants, educators, subject matter experts at solution providers, and more. 

“The winners represent some of the best, brightest, and hardest working young people in the industry,” shared Matthew Raynor, Group Publisher, Healthcare Innovation. “On behalf of the entire team here at Healthcare Innovation I want to congratulate our winners and I am so excited to see what they do to continue to help innovate and advance healthcare.”

Dr. Liu joins a prestigious cohort of honorees shaping the future of healthcare. On a mission to bring the right care to patients at the right time, Dr. Liu leverages his entrepreneurial spirit, and passion for helping people to enhance care quality and delivery. His medical training brings a unique perspective as he collaborates with health systems, imbuing innovation into the way they work at scale across clinical workflows to address healthcare consumerism, deliver virtual care management solutions, and empower people to actively participate in their own care.

During his medical training, he co-led a research project at the University Health Network on hospital readmissions. As a result, Dr. Liu was inspired to develop technology to help providers engage and monitor patients to prevent adverse outcomes such as readmissions, which ultimately led to him co-founding SeamlessMD.

"I'm honored to be recognized by Healthcare Innovation’s 40 Under 40. It’s a testament to the exceptional value SeamlessMD brings to digital healthcare," said Dr. Liu. “My foremost goal is to continue delivering on our commitment to enhancing care delivery across patient populations, helping healthcare organizations tackle industry challenges, and ultimately drive measurable results for all stakeholders.”

Dr Liu’s passion for empowering patients and providers alike with forward-thinking innovation has earned him numerous honours, including being named Digital Health Executive of the Year by Digital Health Canada, Forbes 30 Under 30 in Science and Healthcare, and receiving the Eric Fonberg MD Award for Health Systems Leadership. 

Actively involved in steering digital healthcare conversations, Dr. Liu frequently speaks at industry events on the latest advancements in digital health, strategies to optimize patient experience and accelerate digital front door strategies, as well as key issues such as healthcare transformation, enhanced recovery after surgery, role of entrepreneurs in health tech, healthcare consumerism trends, the importance of innovation-priority fit before reaching product-market fit, and how health systems can leverage technology to reduce high cost services.

He also co-hosts The Digital Patient, rated as one of the top 30 best digital health podcasts, chatting with healthcare, technology, and innovation leaders to bring stories and insights from the frontline of digital healthcare.
