Avenue
Avenue is the most scalable digital care management solution across the healthcare industry. Through our managed remote-patient monitoring platform we connect our clinical staff (e.g., registered nurses, pharmacists, nurse practitioners) to patients to provide support along their care journey. We implement evidence-based programs to improve patient self-efficacy, chronic disease control, self-care, and cost outcomes.
Carescribr
The current platform uses an iPad kiosk in the office waiting room to gather social and medical history and outputs the structured and narrative data directly into the EMR via the FHIR standard. The patient agenda and medical history are available before a visit starts and frees up the medical team to treat the patient and coordinate care. Our product road map includes expanding data collection to patient devices.
Community Collaboratory
Community Collaboratory is a website/app that is being developed in Seattle, WA to make it easier for community members to find brief, safe, and flexible ways of offering and requesting support locally. Community Collaboratory uses a novel matching algorithm (i.e. like dating apps) that allows community members to find brief, flexible, and safe support that fits one’s comfort level, schedule, and needs. Paid staff (Community Health Workers) are always on-call and provide training, supervision, and additional support to community members. There will be clear safety guidelines, staff supervision, and ways to create private groups within the website/app (e.g. if church members only feel comfortable interacting with other members of their church). This feature means users can request/offer support within a private group (e.g. congregation) as well to the broader Community Collaboratory userbase. Our primary aim is to increase social support, improve access to healthcare and social services, reduce caregiver burden, and improve community resilience.
ECG
Addison Care is the world's first virtual caregiver. Addison provides 24/7 care oversight and coaching to patients across the care continuum. Addison engages with patients, clinicians, and caregivers to deliver precision remote patient management, medication management, falls risk assessment, chronic care coordination, and ADL/IADL assessments.
Health Stream Analytics, LLC
We build on 20+ years of innovation in biosensors' data analysis and physiological interpretation with rigorous peer-reviewed academic research that delivers actionable biometrics-based predictors of health outcomes.

For individuals, families, schools, nursing homes, long-term acute care assisted living facilities, teams, industry and academic researchers and product developers,
Health Stream Analytics can help choose the right biosensors for your health monitoring or research needs and empower you by getting more health-relevant information out of them over time. We offer pro bono work in COVID-19 prediction/early detection space.

When you participate in Health Stream Analytics and receive your report, you can opt to receive our quarterly newsletter. It provides updates on what we are learning from the aggregate of the data collected and analyzed to date. When you join Health Stream Analytics, you are contributing to crowdsourced research that is performed with scientific rigor, integrity, and respect for the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information. Our HRV algorithms have not been submitted to the FDA. Once they are further developed and refined with the help of participants like you, we intend to submit them to the scrutiny of the FDA and to offer a membership program. Subscribing members will receive a real-time analysis of their biometric data to give them information that they can use to make decisions related to their health and well-being.
HealthTree Foundation
HealthTree Cure Hub is a data platform that puts the power of artificial intelligence and precision medicine into the hands of everyday patients. It unlocks the power of their own medical data to enable them to find new treatments and accelerate a cure for previously incurable diseases.
iHealthHome, Inc.
A mobile app that helps senior care organizations create a safe environment for caregivers and the seniors they serve in this new Covid-19 world. Staff complete daily symptom tracking, temperature logging, other tasks and sign to attest their submission on their phone before reporting to work. An algorithm displays a daily status of either clearance for work or alternative guidance. An admin portal enables remote monitoring, case management, documentation for compliance and risk mitigation.
In the Groove, LLC and A. C. Tourniquet, LLC
Quickest, easiest to use tourniquet, 2 patents, 1 more pending with pictorial instructions on band itself. 3 variations, most intuitive with metal spring buckle, another is lightest only 0.6 oz and other is dual pressure - stop primary bleed without pain or pressure rest of band, (this would be critical for dialysis patients who would die in seconds if port is compromised)

Kinnected
Kinnected is a health platform that speaks to our desperate need of trustworthy, sanctuary spaces and systems that focus on our better health and human behavior. Conceived with the knowledge that we must prepare for future vulnerabilities on a pandemic scale and put healthy, digital, community infrastructure in place, Kinnected is a remedy for the following:

The disenfranchisement that health consumers associate with the word healthcare.
Health professionals who are burnt-out and need to reconnect to their purpose of caring for others.
Non-humane focused technology and social platforms that privilege profits over impact and which are sadly, the primary arenas where people find themselves searching, often in vain, for the areas of care that they're missing.
Lack of framework for helping elders/seniors explore and share connection and meaningful social inclusion.

Assessing Care Innovation and Wellness, Measuring the Value of Peer Support Alongside Medical Care

The Wellness Study works to develop and test the effectiveness of individuals tracking their symptoms, recording personal experiences about health, and understanding their coping mechanisms in parallel with existing healthcare treatments. The study provides a complement of tools to support self-care for those suffering from Long COVID and other chronic illnesses. There are three cohorts of participants and two of the three will be directed to interact with peers who have similar health conditions.
