Kyruus “load balancing” health care — Julie Yoo Interview

0

Continuing my interviews with various health tech players from HIMSS17, Julie Yoo MD may be one of the brightest people in health IT. She and her colleague Graham Gardner founded Kyruus to deal with one of the most complex problems in health care. The issue is the patient accessing the right doctor/provider, which is somewhat equivalent to getting everyone in the right plane to the right vacation (or in computer speak “load balancing“). While this sounds simple it’s a very complex issue with both a huge data problem (tracking which doctors are available and do what) and a rationalization issue (what patient needs what). Julie explains the problem and how Kyruus works with provider systems to fix it.

Which of These 10 New Companies Will Change the Face of Health care?

0

The Health 2.0 Fall Conference is the perfect place for new and young companies to get a foot in the door – to generate industry buzz, obtain critical funding and pitch new partners.

Our lineup includes:

Our exclusive Launch! event – 10 companies will debut their solutions and have them voted on by the audience.

Henk Jan Scholten, a co-founder of last year’s winner – Siren Care – said, “Launch! was the ideal platform for our product because it’s not only laser-focused on digital health but also has a stellar industry reputation and strong following of innovators and thought leaders. Showcasing our product with a live patient demo on stage gave us instant credibility that is hard to achieve.”

Be sure to also attend Traction, which puts Series A-ready companies center stage as they compete to be recognized as the most fundable start-up from venture capitalists and corporate investors.

Michelle Longmire, CEO Medable

I never ceased to be amazed by how smart young clinicians solve problems that they see. Michelle Longmire was in residency at Stanford working with colleagues building point solutions when she realized that what they needed was an easy platform on which to develop medical grade apps. Her company Medable was the result. Then she realized that the other big market was clinical researchers, who now have access to Apple’s ResearchKit, but need an easy way to build a study without using developers. I interviewed her recently and she built a study for me using Medable’s new Axon product.
