Video Transcript

My name is Sumeet Maniar and I’m the CEO of WellBrain, and we’re based in Northern California in San Francisco.

We are a digital health, chronic pain management platform that enables physicians and providers and hospital systems to prescribe, if you will, mindfulness and other evidence-based non-opiate modalities to help treat chronic pain and help fight the opiate epidemic.

Basically, we’re an iPad-based solution in the hospital or provider setting. The patient comes in, gets administered some diagnostics, and then gets introduced to some deep breathing exercises to use at home with a smartphone and it’s all physician trackable. And we’ve expanded to offer other types of solutions for providers, such as accelerated pre-auth approval for neurostimulation for third-party medical devices – which is another form of evidence-based non-opiate modality. And the initial results, with respect to our platform, are we’ve shown reductions in patients’ opiate prescriptions, reductions in their pain scores, and also self-reported reductions in emergency room visits. So that’s what WellBrain is about. We are mission-driven as well. And we look to help communities in need with our software, not only selling to hospital systems but also the outpatient as well.

Meet the CEO: TheraWe (VIDEO)

“Meet the CEO” is a series of videos introducing the CEOs of the inaugural LaunchKC Health Accelerator. In this video, TheraWe CEO Kaitlin Doyle discusses how TheraWe Connect is improving the experience of pediatric therapy for patients, providers, and parents.

 

Video Transcript

I’m Kaitlyn Doyle, with TheraWe Connect in Kansas City, Missouri. TheraWe Connect is a HIPAA compliant, mobile video platform that bridges the gap between the therapy center and the home. So it’s a platform that really improves the communication and collaboration between the parent and the therapy provider in multiple organizations in the pediatric therapy market.

My co-founder, Kirby, saw that there was a need. He had a family member who was going through the Early Intervention program in the state of Missouri and navigating pediatric therapy is a challenge for sure. He thought, “Surely I can help solve this problem.” When I met Kirby I had moved from the home setting to the clinic, and working in the clinic I saw that there was a definite need for understanding what truly was going on at home. If you have that understanding then you can better help that client. So we partnered together to create a platform that will do just that.

Meet the CEO: medZERO (VIDEO)

“Meet the CEO” is a series of videos introducing the CEOs of the inaugural LaunchKC Health Accelerator. In this video, medZERO CEO Michael Sobek describes how the company is changing the way people pay for healthcare.

 

Video Transcript

I am Mike Sobek, CEO and founder of medZERO of Kansas City, Missouri. medZERO is a form of payment for people to pay their healthcare bills. What we had found is that deductibles have risen from $250 to $1,000 to $5,000 today for a family, and when they go to the hospital or to the dentist or even a pharmacy they are unable to pay their $1,000 deductible.

We provide a simple means for them to issue a Mastercard, complete the payment and then over the next six or 12 months out of payroll or through an HSA contribution they pay off over time at 0% interest.
