Venture+ Forum will be taking place at this year’s #HIMSS16 conference.  Today, four finalists (Bright.md, Flow Health, Sansoro Health, and VUCA Health) selected by the Venture+ Forum, will be presenting their healthtech solutions at the final pitch competition.  

At the conference, one of the main topics of discussion and concern has been around patient engagement and improving one’s personal healthcare experience.  All four of these companies, although very different in their solutions, touch upon improving the patient experience in some way.

Bright.md has a goal to increase the provider panel size by 30%.  Instead of wasting a physician’s time and money, it focuses on getting patients appointments that wouldn’t be filled otherwise.  It focuses on the patient by lowering the costs and time it takes to be seen. The solution has a positive impact on the practice, but makes sure to tune into the patient’s needs as well. Continue Reading…

This week, over 400,000 people ranging from different backgrounds will come together to attend an event that has an impact on all of our lives.  This event is the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Conference of 2016 or in twitter lingo, #HIMSS16

You might be thinking, why does this effect me? No, it’s not because quarterback Peyton Manning will be attending as a keynote.  It’s because HIMSS16 revolves around leveraging IT to better healthcare.  Everyone has experienced a bump in the road or negative experience when it comes to healthcare.  We are all looking for that next big thing to improve these issues.  Having a week of keynotes, panels, meet-ups, showcases, etc. that are dedicated to healthcare innovation, is the perfect place to start conversations about these problems and brainstorm how to go about solving them.  

5 questions causing buzz at HIMSS16:

1.) How can we leverage IT to better healthcare?

This is the overarching question of the whole conference.  Whether you are an attendee that is a physician, data scientist, or representing a vendor, you are attending to better healthcare in some way.  Our team is always looking to use data in different ways to assist in healthcare decisions.  We are optimistic that more data will become open and available to consume. Continue Reading…

If you are involved in the study start up process, you know how important it is to have the best investigators.  Having the best investigators allows you to be successful in enrolling patients.  Many have their own investigator database, but when there is difficulty, they usually resort to PubMed, registries, and other data.  This data is difficult to navigate and becomes a time suck.

Indicate Investigators has all the data available, but organizes it in a way that is easy to navigate and will save you time.

Below is the launch page to search by Drug/Drug Class OR Disease.  We curate all publicly available sources that have data on investigators, mining the data from its native html, text or XML, and loading into structured, linked data on each Investigator. We know what trials they participated in, how many trials, and how frequently they work within specific disease indications.

Once you decide what to search for, you will be directed to the results page of all investigators involved in that indication. Continue Reading…

Sponsor Finder is a tool created to allow our users to search and identify sales opportunities at trial sponsors.  Pinpointing opportunities at the right moment can be difficult because once the trial is announced, it is likely that everyone to work with is already lined up.  You can utilize the filters in Sponsor Finder, avoid this problem and stay ahead of the curve.  

One search that is popular among current users, is to look for organizations that have trials completing in the next 6 months.

I will throw out a specific example: “I am on a team with phase 3, breast cancer trial experience…How do I search?”  You would plug the following into Sponsor Finder: phase 1/2 and 2, active, breast cancer trials, that are completing in the next 180 days.  Continue Reading…
