Over the past few years, a number of incubators have burst onto the health care scene. It’s not always easy to begin the next start-up, and these programs offer the mentorship and funding needed in health IT today. The influx in these programs has contributed to a shift in the traditional venture capital model. During this session, we talked with leaders of some of the biggest health care incubators out there about this new and exciting landscape in Health 2.0.
Matt Wiggins, Founder, Remedy Ventures
A group of artists, doctors, developers, and entrepreneurs, Remedy Ventures built an iPhone platform for healthcare. Immediately post launch two of their apps hit the top of iPhone health apps. Their mobile portal is linked to a web portal that helps communication between doctors and nurses, provides digital prescriptions, and more.
Matt Wiggins, Remedy Systems
A behind-the-scenes partner to some of the biggest healthcare companies in the country, Remedy Systems tends to keep a low profile. Luckily we have Matt Wiggins here to expose which companies they work with, and explain how Remedy Systems is providing mobile expertise to some of the big names we all know.
Moderated by Aaron Blackledge (MD, Care Practice), this panel includes demonstrations from James Davis (COO, RegisterPatient), Arien Malec (VP Data Platform Solutions, Relay Health), Daniel Kivatinos (Co-Founder & COO, Dr. Chrono), Russell Olsen (Vice President, Product Management, Phytel), Matt Wiggins (Remedy Systems), and commentary by Ronald Dixon (Medical Director, Massachusetts General Hospital).
Matt Wiggins, Remedy Systems
Remedy Systems is a team of artists, entrepreneurs, and technologists who create mobile apps and modern infrastructure that lower the costs and improve the quality of healthcare. Since their inception they’ve been building practical mobile applications for doctors and consumers. Here Matt displays the motivation to create Remedy, and displays their solution to doctor’s bad handwriting – an online drug database.
Matt Wiggins, CEO, Remedy Systems
Matt runs an iPhone developer shop, with a mobile platform that’s also a “napkin-stage” investor. But he’s speaking here with us at Health 2.0 both because Remedy’s point of care app was a Launch! winner last year, and because it’s being used by DrChrono as an eRX module in their EMR. Leveraging existing mobile applications, Remedy seeks to customize mobile apps for the healthcare community.
Health 2.0 is not just about technology. In this panel we will be showing the latest advances in Health 2.0 tools for clinicians–and how they’re working together–and we’ll also be looking at examples of programs that have incorporated Health 2.0 technology into clinical and business operations. What results have they shown and how have those partnerships begun to reform care delivery?
