Always a major highlight of the Health 2.0 Annual Conference, live tech demos are a chance for entrepreneurs and startups to gain visibility for their products with potential investors, partners and peers. It’s also a chance to see the latest innovations being brought to market.
We’ve rounded up some of the most exciting live tech demos from recent Health 2.0 conferences, below.
Medal: Health 2.0 Interoperability Panel Demo
Medal CEO and Co-founder Lonnie Rae Kurlander is on a mission to simplify the ever-growing volumes of complex health information needed for patient treatment. Medal serves up a useful patient summary for physicians and providers by extracting crucial medical data through machine learning and natural language processing systems. Watch her demo of the company’s platform from 2016.
PokitDok: Health 2.0 Interoperability Panel Demo
PokitDok started with a mission to put patients in charge by bringing an e-commerce experience to healthcare. The company’s API platform-as-a-service takes on data silos that prevent the free exchange of information and legacy infrastructure that can't accommodate modern healthcare applications and services. In 2016, a team from the company demoed DocChain.
mySugr: Health 2.0 Session Demo
mySugr is a Population Health tool designed to motivate people with diabetes to manage their chronic disease. The diabetes management app offers personalized diabetes coaching along with simplified viewing of the information patients need to keep track of, including synced BGs, estimated A1c, CGM data, and insulin calculations. CEO and Co-founder Frank Westermann demoed the app in 2017.
Savonix: Health 2.0 Exhibit Hall Demo
CEO and Founder Mylea Charvat created the Savonix Digital Cognitive Assessment Platform following her husband’s bike accident. As a neuroscientist, she wasn’t happy with available options for his care. Designed to help improve patient outcomes, Savonix Mobile provides real-time cognitive monitoring and feedback through a set of digitized neurocognitive tests. See Charvat’s demo from 2017.
