And today, all of the hard work from the last 90 days of intensive iteration and development was revealed to investors, mentors, and healthcare leaders at Demo Day.
“We have this program so we can bring really innovative technology to our patients faster and more efficiently, improving quality of care and patient safety,” said Omkar Kulkarni, director of the accelerator.
As each of the founders took the stage at the Guerin Pavilion at Skirball Cultural Center to pitch their innovations, they were introduced by key mentors or stakeholders who spoke to the impact that their unique ideas and technologies can have on the healthcare landscape.
Joan August, VP Service Line Operations at Cedars-Sinai, kicked off the showcase by introducing Noteworth's CEO and Co-Founder, Justin Williams, bringing up the fact that only actionable data can trigger interventions in care when they're most needed (watch Joan's message, as well as Justin's pitch below).
After Noteworth, founders from the rest of the cohort highlighted their companies to a packed house:
- Enso — A wireless wearable device that uses electrical stimulation to provide drug-free pain relief
Cerebro Solutions — This software platform and marketplace helps healthcare organizations more efficiently manage their labor spend by providing tools to manage staff and per-diem contract nurses, while also providing insight and forecasts into labor demands.
Frame Health — Through advanced personality analysis, Frame Health identifies high cost, non-adherent patients and creates personalized provider communication guides and tailored patient treatment plans that improve adherence and outcome while lowering costs.
Referral MD — A cloud-based patient access referral management and collaboration platform that helps health systems increase revenue and drive operational efficiency.
HealthTensor — Artificial intelligence is used to mine the medical record for pertinent information and automate physician documentation. This allows physicians to spend more time with patients, improves care, and optimizes reimbursements by ensuring proper clinical documentation.
Healthcare TTU — Predictive analytics provide hospital health systems with unprecedented transparency into their cash flows and accounts receivable valuation, thus increasing both internal operational efficiencies and financing opportunities with their banking partners.
Several of the companies, including Noteworth, are leaving the accelerator with agreements to continue working with Cedars-Sinai.
Though Demo Day officially marks the end of the second cohort of the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator, Noteworth will continue to be inspired by the ideas and people we were able to connect with during the program and further hone our product with the learnings we uncovered there.
