Interior design is having its moment in healthcare
A pair of crystal chandeliers illuminate the open bar stocked with infused waters and teas rich in antioxidants. Around the room, trendy air-purifying fiddle-leaf fig plants draw your eye up to the recessed gold ceiling. And a row of bistro tables line the wall of French-style windows, which are likely to open on warmer Chicago days. The Clark isn't a chic new bistro. It's Swedish Covenant Health's Instagram-worthy outpatient clinic. Beyond the gilt-edged waiting room are nine exam rooms and a phlebotomy lab, among other traditional, yet posh, health center fixtures. The 3,500-square-foot clinic, scheduled to open Feb. 28, is just one example of a trend that's sweeping the health care industry. From aesthetic improvements to the creation of mixed-use spaces, hospitals and clinics are upgrading interiors to attract and retain patients, as well as skilled clinicians—and even create new revenue streams. The focus on design comes at a time when organizations rooted in inpatient care are building new outpatient sites in response to pressures for lower-cost treatment settings.

Alkem Laboratories Ltd. to Launch State of the Art Technology for Diabetic Foot Ulcer Management

Alkem Laboratories Ltd. | January 13, 2022

Alkem Laboratories Ltd. (Alkem) hereby announces to launch a unique patented technology for the treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcer (DFU) in India. The solution would be based on disruptive 4D Bioprinting technology, which would be used to treat deep, non-healing chronic wounds and is expected to be launched in the Indian market in the latter half of 2022 post regulatory approval. This advanced technology for DFU management has a high scope of preventing amputations in diabetic patients. This technology will be available at affordable rates to Indian patients at a time when there is no definitive treatment for DFU in India. India currently has approximately 77 mn diabetes patients, the second highest in the world. A diabetic foot ulcer is one of the most significant and devastating complications of diabetes and is defined as a foot affected by ulceration that is associated with neuropathy and/or peripheral arterial disease of the lower limb in a patient with diabetes. Approximately, 12-15% with diabetes suffer from DFU at least once in a lifetime. 5–24% of them will finally lead to limb amputation within 6–18 months after the first evaluation. The risk of foot ulceration and limb amputation increases with age and the duration of diabetes. Alkem has collaborated with Rokit Healthcare Inc. to commercialize the technology in India to help reduce amputation amongst DFU patients considering the negative impact of amputation on a patient's quality of life and the associated economic burden on the healthcare system. "In India, Diabetes is one of the major healthcare challenges. The challenge in itself is so huge that diabetic foot ulcers often get ignored. Approximately 1 lac people have to undergo amputation every year and compromise on their quality of life. To address the problem, Alkem has collaborated with Rokit Healthcare Inc., a global regenerative solutions company, to bring out novel solutions for the management of diabetic foot ulcers." Mr. Sandeep Singh, Managing Director, Alkem Laboratories Ltd Adding further, Mr. Sandeep asserted, "Alkem, over the years, has always been at the forefront in delivering high-quality patient care, through its innovation and patient-centric initiatives." About Alkem Laboratories Ltd Established in 1973 and headquartered in Mumbai, Alkemis a leading Indian pharmaceutical company with global operations, engaged in the development, manufacture, and sale of pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products.

Ensemble Health Partners, in Partnership with Caduceus Capital Partners, Leads Series A Round for Janus Health

Ensemble Health Partners | December 15, 2021

Ensemble Health Partners, in partnership with Caduceus Capital Partners, led the $8 million Series A capital raise for Janus Health, a revenue cycle automation and decision support platform. Billions of dollars are left uncollected annually by healthcare providers due to poor methods and inconsistent human decision making in the revenue cycle process. Janus Health studies end-user behavior within the revenue cycle and uses advanced AI to determine the optimal path for each workflow. Janus then automates processes and end-to-end workflows using its scalable platform and delivers real-time predictive recommendations to guide human worker performance. “I invest in people first. I’ve known Brendan for a long time, and he has assembled an incredible team who are experts in the field. We see a lot of technology fads in healthcare, but I am always most concerned with delivering value and creating a meaningful impact for our clients and associates. As someone deeply entrenched in the revenue cycle world, I see tremendous potential for Janus to deliver on both fronts.” Judson Ivy, Founder, President and CEO, Ensemble Health Partners “Several factors, including labor shortages, shrinking reimbursements and more stable IT environments, are creating a ripe opportunity to transform the revenue cycle with artificial intelligence and automation,” said Brendan Downing, co-founder and CEO of Janus Health. “Janus Health offers a timely service that can have a significant impact for health systems struggling with these rising costs-to-collect and reimbursement challenges.” Health systems continue to struggle with a workforce shortage and lack of resources. A recent McKinsey & Company study showed that $180 billion could be saved in healthcare administration and finance costs with automated technology. Many health systems do not currently have revenue cycle automation, but plan to implement this technology in the next year. With Janus Health, managers and executives receive actionable insights into people, productivity and practices, allowing them to optimally allocate and manage resources. “The revenue cycle in healthcare is notoriously challenging. Billing and collections are especially complicated when you consider the various payors and parties involved in a transaction,” said Dave Vreeland, senior managing partner at Caduceus Capital Partners. “This area is one of the most labor-intensive in healthcare, and there is a huge opportunity for Janus to make a difference in the industry.” Jim Gaffney, EVP, strategy and corporate development at Ensemble Health Partners and Sue Tyler, venture partner at Caduceus Capital Partners will serve on the Janus Health board of directors. About Ensemble Health Partners Ensemble Health Partners is a leading provider of technology-enabled revenue cycle management solutions for health systems, including hospitals and affiliated physician groups. The company offers end-to-end revenue cycle solutions as well as a comprehensive suite of point solutions to clients across the country. About Caduceus Capital Partners, LLC Caduceus Capital Partners is a venture capital and private equity company focused on early-stage digital health investments. The Caduceus Capital Partners investment model actively supports portfolio companies from the first check to the exit phase with operational expertise and network access to potential customers and partners.
