Curamei Technologies Launches Platform Enabling Patients to Take Charge of Their Health Data

PONTE VEDRA, Fla. -- The new Curamei platform seeks to improve quality of care by putting patients at the center of the exchange of health data with providers, overcoming the challenges of fragmentation. Almost universally, receiving high-quality affordable healthcare is recognized as an expensive and inconvenient affair.

For overworked healthcare providers, it is incredibly difficult to get the time to keep track of patients and organize care plans that work to enhance patient lifestyles. For those facing chronic health issues, the situation is even more dire as different health specialists and care organizations often do not collaborate well to create the most effective treatment plans. At the root of these quality issues are the challenges of collecting health data.

The administrative burdens of documenting care and inconvenient methods of accessing health data have massively contributed to a crisis of physician burnout that has greatly increased costs across the industry. While providers struggle to access medical records, it is no wonder that digital health products like smart watches and biometric trackers have been greatly underused. The fact of the matter is that for a provider who barely has time to see the patient, there is not enough time to go through and learn how to analyze data from these digital health products to enhance care.

Aditya Singh, co-founder of Curamei Technologies, comments, "We see these issues in the context of a great debate over how consumers should have control over their own data. In a field as sensitive as healthcare, why should patients not have direct access to and the ability to directly share their own health data? As such, we set out to create the ideal tool for patients to take control of their health data."

Through the Curamei platform, patient users have the ability to organize various types of health data from patient portals, digital health products, and physical documents. With this capability, patients can then share directly with providers, which allows care providers to bypass obstacles to data access while also receiving valuable health information in an easily digestible format.

"As we work to expand functionality and support for different sources of data, we will also make a special effort to ensure that Curamei can be applied to improving the quality of care for patients of all income levels," elaborates Singh. "Through community health and social care organization partnerships, we will use Curamei as a tool for care collaboration and tackling issues of waste in healthcare resources."

About Curamei

Curamei is a platform which empowers patients with the tools to aggregate their health data and share it with care providers.

John Hagelgans Joins Zanthion as Chief Technology Officer

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- John Hagelgans has joined Zanthion(TM) as their new CTO. Zanthion spent over a year looking for a new chief technology officer based in the United States with the integrity and intelligence to help them achieve dominance in the elderly care market.

They engineered a sophisticated gating mechanism for their CTO hire involving logic tests, measurement of their personal investment in elderly care, measuring their proactiveness, determining their willingness to provide value first, and last and most importantly, their integrity and capability. John flew through all gates and is already a valued member of the Zanthion team helping them deliver SMART Living.

"Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if you don't have the first, the other two will kill you. John exemplifies integrity and Zanthion is lucky to have gotten all three in a great leader," says Philip Regenie, CEO, Zanthion.

According to Senior Housing News, "smart" living environments for seniors are a must, and are, without a doubt, the next frontier. Ginna Baik, strategic business development manager for senior care for CDW Healthcare, spoke at the publication's Los Angeles Summit, stating that 80% of the top 100 senior living providers in the U.S. are considering or actively implementing such measures (*note 1). The revenue of the smart homes market is, in fact, expected to grow to $58.68 billion by 2020, with the increased mandate for senior care solutions being a large part of that growth (*note 2). Integral to these smart home networks will be "wearables" that keep tabs on the vitals and whereabouts of seniors at all times.

John will lead the charge in enhancing the Zanthion suite of data-rich wearables and environmental sensors with AI. John comes to Zanthion from Greenlight Financial Technology where he was a founder and served as CTO and Head of Data and Analytics for 4 and one-half years taking the company from an initial $1M dollar investment to an Amazon partner investment at $27.5M. John's long history of entrepreneurship in the financial world is an invaluable asset to the data analytics required for sensor analysis and data collection.
