Enabling Personalized Predictive Analytics with VitaLink®
Healthcare costs are out of control and growing at an unsustainable rate. phys IQ founders believe that personalized predictive analytics can help by delivering real time data to better predict a patient's health trends.
Serial entrepreneur Gary Conkright and his co-founder Matt Pipke, both draw from their significant technology, software and legal backgrounds to drive phys IQ's dream to a tangible reality. Utilizing a cloud-based analytics platform to engage with a proprietary predictive analytics technology VitaLink® identifies and trends significant medical events. VitaLink® enables clinicians to provide a proactive treatment plan driving better healthcare outcomes at much lower costs than reactive care.
Working closely together, Insight and phys IQ developed a set of body worn sensors that collects patient vital signs. This realtime data collection and management is crucial to the success of the VitaLink® system.
Gary Conkright notes: "at phys IQ, we are data management and software experts. Insight's expert knowledge of human factors and physiology around vital signs monitoring was an invaluable asset to this exciting technology. A set of skills that we did not possess internally. Without effective monitoring and data collection, VitaLink® would not be possible."
The VitaLink® remote patient monitoring solution was developed under a contract with the Veterans Administration and is currently the subject of two IRB approved clinical studies. phys IQ has recently completed a series A round of investment for more than $6M and most recently has been selected to present at TEDMed 2014.
Exciting times are certain to come for phys IQ and the team. We at IAL wish you continued success.
