Cascade Health Announces Venture Funding Round to Build Intelligent Platform for Healthcare Transparency

PRNewswire | May 16, 2023

Cascade Health, an intelligent platform for healthcare transparency, announced it has raised $1.7 million in venture funding led by AlleyCorp with participation from other strategic angel investors. The company also announced the launch of its first two products: a generative AI assistant to personalize the consumer experience with full visibility around cost and quality of care, as well as APIs that allow companies in the healthcare industry to access data on demand and use it to build their own internal and external products. As healthcare costs have continued to rise in the US, the system has also grown more complex and increasingly opaque. In an effort to counter this, the US government has recently mandated that hospitals and insurance companies publicly disclose pricing data for procedures across the country. Both parties have done so, but in massive files that can't be opened or used without substantial computing power. Cascade Health leverages cloud and AI to aggregate these datasets, along with other public and private healthcare data, to help employers, consumers, government agencies, hospitals, insurance companies and other healthcare-related businesses better understand pricing and coverage. It is the only company that can transform these datasets along with client-specific data and use large language models to interact with the combined data to optimize decision-making in real-time to personalize the experience for anyone seeking or giving care. "We want Cascade Health to become the infrastructure for healthcare transparency – an objective, neutral source for healthcare pricing and coverage," said Ana-Maria Constantin, Cascade Health's CEO and co-founder. "Our intelligent platform provides a window into all this that allows anyone on any side of the healthcare system to make data-driven decisions about the care they receive or deliver." The core of Cascade Health's intelligent platform is a proprietary massive-scale cloud computing infrastructure which works alongside machine learning models and AI to help find, sort and transform massive amounts of healthcare data needed to provide transparency into healthcare pricing and coverage. Cascade Health's generative AI assistant lets consumers ask about coverage options, pricing for different procedures and regions, and more, then uses Cascade Health's platform to deliver data-driven answers to those questions in plain English. The company also provides data management and warehousing infrastructure so customers can benefit from using it without having to worry about storing data. Before founding Cascade Health, Constantin and co-founder Pulak Goyal spent six years at Microsoft building large-scale cloud systems that used machine learning to make intelligent, data-driven decisions for efficient resource utilization. "Complexity and opacity are both endemic in the American healthcare system. It's nearly impossible for stakeholders to make truly informed decisions, whether it's about individual or group coverage, or how to most efficiently deliver and pay for care," said Jane Suh, Principal at AlleyCorp. "We invested in Cascade Health because the team's background and knowledge base perfectly aligns with their mission to bring clarity and access to an essential part of healthcare decision-making." About Cascade Health Cascade Health is an intelligent platform for healthcare transparency. Its intelligent platform is the first to deliver specific data-driven insights that allow consumers, employers buying group insurance plans, government agencies, hospitals, insurance companies to make informed strategic decisions, creating a more affordable and equitable healthcare system for all. Cascade Health is based in Seattle and backed by AlleyCorp and other strategic angels.

Global Health Technology Platform Provider Proximie Commences Rollout of PxLens Using Vuzix M4000™ Smart Glasses

Prnewswire | April 06, 2023

Vuzix® Corporation a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, announced that Proximie, a global health technology platform provider, has commenced rollout of PxLens following its initial introduction earlier this year. PxLens, Proximie's smart glasses solution for use in operating rooms, uses Vuzix M4000™ smart glasses. PxLens offers quick setup and use when paired with the Proximie mobile app and seamless integration into Proximie's cloud-based platform for telepresence, content management, and insights from the operating room. Vuzix M4000 smart glasses offer the performance and versatility of Vuzix M400 smart glasses combined with see-through waveguide technology. They are the first enterprise-focused smart glasses using revolutionary Vuzix waveguides and offer a see-through heads-up display. Voice activated commands enable hands-free control, and the M4000's robust battery packs can be swapped mid-procedure to ensure that even the longest procedures can be fully streamed and recorded. Comfortable head mounting enables surgeons to share a first-person perspective of open surgeries and minimally invasive procedures, allowing participants observing remotely to view high-definition pictures and streamed videos of these surgeries and procedures, providing them opportunities to advise where necessary and/or learn from cutting-edge surgical techniques. Within the Proximie platform these procedures are recorded and saved in a secure library to be reviewed, edited, analyzed and shared. Pilot procedures with surgeons wearing the PxLens were conducted in the United Kingdom and the United States by Proximie in 2022. Procedures included colorectal, otolaryngology, orthopedic, plastics, and urology surgeries and user feedback has been uniformly positive. "Vuzix smart glasses represent a lightweight, wearable, hands-free solution that delivers high performance on every measure," said Dr. Nadine Hachach-Haram, founder and CEO of Proximie. "The PxLens is another step on Proximie's journey to help surgeons deliver effective and efficient care. It provides an insightful first-person perspective and helps make the recording and sharing of procedures ubiquitous. This improves patient care, training, skills development, and overall surgical efficiency." "Proximie's selection and exclusive use of Vuzix smart glasses for such a key element of their telepresence platform represents another significant win for us in the healthcare space," said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. "Our see-through M4000 smart glasses represent one of the most optimal solutions for use in operating rooms, whether for remote support, training, information management or actual surgeries, and we look forward to working with Proximie to support their global rollout of PxLens across their customer base." About Proximie Founded in 2016, Proximie's healthcare platform brings together telepresence, content management, and data insights to help hospitals, surgeons, and medical device companies improve patient outcomes and drive productivity. With Proximie, expertise can be shared from anywhere using any device, and data from procedures can be securely captured, managed, and analyzed at scale.
