StartUp Health, a global entrepreneurship development company for Healthcare Transformers, and GE Ventures, announced the addition of three digital health startups to its StartUp Health Academy’s GE Program.

Here is a look at the three newest companies selected to join the StartUp Health Academy with GE Ventures:
Biome Analytics’ transformational goal is to help hospitals deliver the best possible cardiovascular care at the lowest cost. Biome aggregates the data and builds the applications that deliver the insight doctors and hospitals need to insure the 26.6 million Americans diagnosed with cardiovascular disease get the best possible care at the lowest cost.
Jiseki Health’s mission is to bridge the gap between hospital-provided clinical care and supportive community health resources with technology to enable better and more accountable service delivery, and ultimately get patients the right services at the right place at the right time and for the right cost.
WinguMD’s transformational goal is to make all mobile medical photos “smart” and tell a vivid clinical story that would not be able to be captured in a written note. WinguMD’s BodyMapSnap collects metadata from an image and enables body location and tagging tools for physicians combined with smart object size measurement and document recognition to make every photo a clinical tool and enables sharing with existing EMR and image archiving solutions.
