Without further ado, here is Blueprint Health’s newest class of startups:
Healogram-mobile platform connecting patients and doctors to remotely monitor wound healing
Founded by Nathan Ie and Peter Jackson
Post-surgical follow-up appointments to monitor wound healing are inconvenient, costly, and often offer marginal value. Healo is a mobile application that eliminates the need for the majority of these visits by allowing remote monitoring. Patients use the application to submit photographs of the wound at intervals determined by the physician and answer questions on compliance / complications. This data is made available for doctor/nurse review through a web interface. Approximately 90% of wound cases would be covered by this type of continued wound monitoring.
HITEKS– Clinical NLP extracting actionable data from unstructured text
Founded by Gerasimos Petratos, MD, Abdo E. Abdo, Martin Coyne, MD and Peris
