Phoenix-based startup Mindset Medical has raised over $1 million in investment capital for the launch and expansion of its patient-engagement platform Informed.
The web-based platform allows patients to build a HIPAA-compliant health profile and check into an appointment on their smartphone. It eliminates the task of completing, reviewing, and transcribing patient intake forms for both the patient and the physician office.
Nicholas Theodore, director of the Neurosurgical Spine Program at John Hopkins, commented: "In this era of big data and information overload, one area that has been overlooked is the initial interaction between physician and patient. Even in 2018, this encounter sadly begins with a clipboard, a poorly functioning tethered pen and reams of barely decipherable photocopied forms. Check-in is a mess, and from the patient's perspective designed to disguise the fact the doctor is running behind."
Mitch Foster, one of the co-founders of Mindset Medical, said: "With the industry experience of our Mindset Medical management team and our board of physician advisers, we are excited to continue to bring positive disruption to healthcare."
