Mindset Medical, a Phoenix, AZ-based digital health startup has raised $1 million in capital to expand their mobile patient engagement platform, Informed. This web-based platform allows patients to build a HIPAA-compliant health profile and check into an appointment with the simple swipe of their smartphone.Co-founded by Mitch Foster and Nicholas Theodore, MD, Mindset Medical brings the simplicity of a mobile check-in experience to medicine, Informed eliminates the cumbersome task of completing, reviewing, and transcribing patient intake forms for both the patient and the physician office.
Prior to forming Mindset Medical, the duo created a navigated robot for minimally-invasive spine surgery, recently acquired by Globus Medical. Mindset Medical, LLC is actively enrolling health care provider offices throughout the southwest on an annual subscription basis.
“In this era of big data and information overload, one area that has been overlooked is the initial interaction between physician and patient. Even in 2018, this encounter sadly begins with a clipboard, a poorly functioning tethered pen and reams of barely decipherable photocopied forms. Check-in is a mess, and from the patient’s perspective designed to disguise the fact the doctor is running behind,” says Dr. Nicholas Theodore, Director of the Neurosurgical Spine Program at John Hopkins.
