AbiliTech Medical

Why We Love ‘Em

AbiliTech is a Minnesota-based medical device startup working to restore independence to people with neuromuscular conditions or injuries. They’re creating a range of functional devices that allow users to achieve social, physical, and economic autonomy. 2021 marked the official launch of their Assist device, a wearable device that provides supported arm movement for patients with limited strength or range of motion. Other products in active development include the AbiliGRIP, an assistive device for patients with limited hand function.

How They Got Started

AbiliTech was founded by Angie Conley, the former executive director at Magic Arms, a nonprofit working to create devices for children with disabilities preventing arm mobility. From this experience, Conley was introduced to a problem that thousands upon thousands of Americans face on a daily basis: they lack arm mobility and the ability to live independently. “While at Magic Arms, I received countless emails asking if our device could help someone they know, an adult with MS or a spinal cord injury. But we were focused on pediatric conditions on a limited budget,” Conley said. With this inspiration in mind and a wide-scale problem to face, AbiliTech Medical was born.

Funding

Since 2018, AbiliTech Medical has secured $11.1 million in funding across 3 rounds.

eHealth Technologies

Why We Love ‘Em

eHealth Technologies is a New York-based medical record management company making it easier than ever for providers to search through medical records and create treatment plans for their patients. They’ve also reimagined medical imaging with a streamlined channel for accessing imaging studies. Currently, around 250 healthcare facilities in the US use their platform.

How They Got Started

eHealth Technologies was founded by Michael Margiotta and Ken Rosenfeld after Margiotta learned about a co-worker’s loved one who was suffering because her medical records had been lost. He knew that the struggle she had to endure to get new copies was not right, and he and Rosenfeld teamed up to raise this standard. Soon after founding eHealth Technologies, others in the industry began to take notice and now, thousands of families and providers use eHealth for smart, reliable records tracking and retrieval.

Funding

Since 2010, eHealth Technologies has secured $46.7 million in funding across 5 rounds.

Kyruus

Why We Love ‘Em

First up on this week’s list is Kyruus! Their mission is centered around solving the “patient access paradox”: patients being told to wait weeks/months for appointments while appointment slots simultaneously go unutilized – even at leading health systems. With its patient-provider matching platform, Kyruus is the leader in patient access technology. Their team is working to alleviate the nationwide supply-demand mismatch and solve truly unmet needs in healthcare.

How They Got Started

Kyruus was founded in 2010 by Graham Gardner, MD. With a background in medicine, it didn’t take long for Gardner to recognize that there had to be a better way for people to access care. Across the country, people were waiting too long for appointments and too often ended up with the wrong providers. In addition, healthcare was far behind other industries in making access convenient and digitally enabled. Gardner saw that a data-driven approach to patient-provider matching was key to improving the experience for patients and providers alike. Since its founding, Kyruus has been matching patients with top providers and working to fill the gap in the patient access paradox at scale.

Funding

Since 2011, Kyruus has secured ​​$148.2 million in funding across 11 rounds.

Who They’re Looking For

Kyruus prides themselves on their record of success when it comes to building a bright and curious team, and they’re looking for talented pros to join them! Right now, they’re looking for new team members to join them across Account Management, Data Analysis, Customer Success, and more.


Levels Health

Why We Love ‘Em

Levels is a biotechnology startup measuring the sensors our bodies already give off to provide real-time feedback and granular insights into how nutrition affects metabolic health. With a personally-worn device that tracks unique biosensors like continuous glucose monitors (CGM), Levels is working to maximize metabolic health for longer, fuller, healthier lives.

How They Got Started

Levels was founded by Space-X veteran Josh Clemente during his quest to pinpoint the ins and outs of his own nutrition. During consistent episodes experiencing loss of energy, Clemente sought answers from doctors and was coming up empty-handed. After some arduous research tracking his diet and glucose levels, he pinpointed the issue. “That led me down a rabbit hole where I eventually found the profound role that diet plays in holistic health,” Clemente said. He found out that the majority of people weren’t able to access this type of metabolic data, and were left completely in the dark about how nutrition could affect overall health. That’s where Levels came in. In founding Levels, Clemente and his team have disrupted the biometric device market and brought granular, personalized insight to each individual who wears the device.

Funding

Since 2019, Levels has secured $50 million in funding across 4 rounds.

Who They’re Looking For

As they work to enable thousands of users to improve their health through metabolic data, Levels is looking for driven, data-savvy team members to join them. Right now, they’re hiring across Visual Design, Software Engineering, Customer Support, and more.



VillageMD

Why We Love ‘Em

The United States spends nearly $4 trillion on healthcare — the greatest of any country our size. However, in a global comparison, America’s health outcomes rank the lowest among developed countries. VillageMD has stepped in to offer a solution to this disparity. Their platform delivers tools, technology, and operations that make a measurable difference in medical spending while creating community-based medical solutions at a national scale through their partnership with Walgreens.

How They Got Started

VillageMD was co-founded in 2014 by doctors, pharmacists, and healthcare veterans Tim Barry, Clive Fields, & Paul Martino. After years spent in the healthcare industry, its pitfalls and inefficiencies became glaringly apparent to all three. Particularly, they found themselves concerned with the fact that insurance companies, the financial rulers of the healthcare industry, are not set up to accommodate value-based care. With nationwide community clinics and a scaleable approach to personalized care, VillageMD took off quickly.

Funding

Since 2014, VillageMD has raised $491 million in funding across 4 rounds.

Who They’re Looking For

VillageMD is working to scale their team quickly for the rest of 2022 and beyond, and right now, they’re looking for new team members to join them across Operations, Nursing, Data Analytics, and more.
