AESOP Technology announced that they have been accepted into Mayo Clinic Platform Accelerate, a 20-week program that helps early-stage health tech AI startups get market-ready.

Participants are selected through a competitive screening process where a panel of Mayo Clinic leaders reviews them from the clinical and operational perspective, led by John Halamka, MD., President of Mayo Clinic Platform.

"It's an excellent opportunity for a medical AI startup like us. Data is the fuel from which everything grows into power, and this program provides de-identified patient datasets and tools to help us validate our solutions. This practical experience will help us go even further in developing better products. The fact that we get to be mentored by Mayo Clinic's reputable experts is inspiring."

Jeremiah Scholl, the CPO of AESOP Technology

'AESOP',  which stands for 'AI-Enhanced Safety of Prescription', is working to make physician data entry easier, faster, and less error-prone using machine learning on 3.2 billion data sets. The company has developed products capable of this. One is RxPrime which detects wrong drug errors by checking if medications match patients' diagnoses, age, and gender.

Errors can happen at any stage of the medication-use process, but more than 50% of them occur during the prescribing phase. RxPrime is able to detect potential and unexplained errors in prescriptions and provide optimal recommendations, even for the look-alike-sound-alike medication errors. It offers just-in-time decision support without interfering unnecessarily with the clinical consultation process.

The other is AESOP Technology's latest clinical documentation improvement tool, DxPrime, making it easier for doctors to input correct diagnoses into electronic health record systems. This task can be challenging as there are 68,000 different diagnosis codes under the International Classification of Diseases. The ICD codes were designed to support insurance and billing rather than clinical medicine.

"Medical professionals are more overwhelmed with their workload after the pandemic. How AI can support them gains more importance," says Jim Long, the CEO of AESOP Technology. "AI is transforming the healthcare industry in a variety of ways, like any other industry. Healthcare has unique challenges, and this program will help us be more grounded."

As a participant of the Mayo Clinic Platform_Accelerate, AESOP Technology is glad to expose themselves to real-world applications, which helps cultivate future growth in this rapidly progressing field.  As part of the program, Mayo Clinic will take an equity position in the startup.

PointClickCare Advances the Transition Toward Value-Based Care with Acquisition of Patient Pattern

PointClickCare | March 17, 2023

PointClickCare Technologies, a leading healthcare technology platform enabling meaningful collaboration and access to real‐time insights at every stage of the patient healthcare journey, today announced the acquisition of Patient Pattern. The combination of PointClickCare and Patient Pattern will further the companies' shared vision of enabling better care and outcomes for high-needs populations and provide care teams with the solutions they need to successfully operate at the top of their license. The shift to value-based care continues to accelerate each year, especially as providers are increasingly taking on more risk. According to a recent McKinsey and Company study, the number of patients treated within the value-based care landscape could roughly double in the next five years. Institutional Special Needs Plans (I-SNPs), demonstrate the enormous potential of aligned value-based care models. “Senior care providers need support as they navigate new models of care and ultimately take on more risk-bearing responsibilities, inclusive of technology that helps them deliver exceptional care, particularly to high-needs populations,” said Travis Palmquist, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Senior Care at PointClickCare. “As our customers continue to embrace value-based care and see the success of this model, we are excited to deploy Patient Pattern’s care management platform. Care models will continue to evolve, and this strategic investment is another example of our commitment to helping our customers thrive in this evolving market, specifically, the opportunity to succeed with this shift to risk.” Since its inception, PointClickCare has invested in innovation across the care continuum to close gaps in healthcare delivery through its rich and expansive insights. PointClickCare and Patient Pattern’s combined offerings provide a mechanism to adopt and succeed in risk-bearing arrangements without having to use multiple fragmented solutions. Through this acquisition, PointClickCare will further enable providers to take a comprehensive approach to frailty, ultimately providing better overall care planning. “Over the past ten years, we’ve worked hard to integrate a care management philosophy and capabilities directly into our EHR,” said Dr. Steven Buslovich, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at Patient Pattern. “We’re thrilled to join forces with PointClickCare as we march toward our collective goal of helping clinicians better predict and document risk, close care gaps, and improve patient outcomes. The marriage of an integrated care management platform with population health data will prove to be a major differentiator for us.” Goodwin Procter LLP served as legal advisor and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP served as tax and accounting advisor to PointClickCare. Nemphos Braue LLC served as legal advisor to Patient Pattern. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. About PointClickCare PointClickCare is a leading healthcare technology platform enabling meaningful collaboration and access to real‐time insights at every stage of the patient healthcare journey. More than 27,000 long‐term and post‐acute care providers, over 2,800 hospitals and 2,000 ambulatory clinics, every major U.S. health plan across the U.S, and over 75 state and government agencies use PointClickCare, enabling care collaboration and value‐based care delivery for millions across North America.
