The Telehealth Startup of September

4 startups pitched their product this month to win the Telehealth startup of September Award.

The session was moderated by Sandra Miller (Runway Innovation Hub) and the panel of judges included Orrin Ailloni-Charas (Global Health Impact Fund), Ben Bergsma (Munich Re Ventures), and Balint Bene (bene : studio).

Pitching startups were Cliexa, a care management platform, Nephrodite with an implantable hemodialysis device, ExamMed, a platform enabling reimbursable video visits, and LifeCuff Technologies with a medical device to treat chronic wounds.

After each pitch, judges scored the presenting startup on a scale of 1-5. At the end of the session, the judge’s scores were tallied up and the winner announced. The result of the pitches was a tie between Cliexa and LifeCuff Technologies. They both received the Telehealth Startup of September award.

Panel discussion on health systems

This month consultant Fabien Beckers, Founder of Arterys, facilitated a discussion with Craig Zevin, COO of UBERDOC, Ajala Ngarndi, Medical Director at The I.V. DOC, and Uli K. Chettipally, Founder of InnovatorMD, on how Telehealth can improve health system performance.

In this session panelists considered how doctors can use Telemedicine outside of hospitals, how can technology replace face to face appointments, and how different business models affect delivering care.

The key take-aways were that new Telehealth systems are built around the patient and not around hospitals and insurance companies, which can result in more efficient healthcare.

Using Telemedicine platforms with compliant data collecting and data science the focus from “fixing problems” will shift to preventive medicine.

These systems will be able to detect early signs of medical conditions and fix underlying problems by involving providers outside of medicine i.e. social workers.
