ClosedLoop Selected to Participate in AWS Healthcare Accelerator for Health Equity

ClosedLoop will use AWS Cloud solutions to identify impactful health-related social needs on an individual level

AUSTIN, Texas - August 31, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

ClosedLoop today announced it has been selected to participate in the AWS Healthcare Accelerator for Health Equity, a technical, business, and mentorship program for startups seeking to use AWS to increase access to health services, reduce disparities by addressing social determinants of health (SDoH), and/or use data to promote equitable and inclusive systems of care. This opportunity will support ClosedLoop's efforts to improve health outcomes and health equity by incorporating SDoH into accurate, explainable, and actionable predictions of individual-level health risks.

The four-week AWS Healthcare Accelerator curriculum provides hands-on AWS Cloud and technical training, mentorship, coaching, and business support. As one of 10 companies chosen for this opportunity, ClosedLoop will receive up to $25,000 in AWS Promotional credits, AWS training and support, mentorship, and additional business development resources including opportunities to speak with healthcare-savvy venture investors.

ClosedLoop was recently recognized by KLAS Research as the 2022 Best in KLAS Leader for Healthcare AI: Data Science Solutions. In 2021, the company was named the "1st Place Winner" among 300 entrants in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Health Outcomes Challenge and awarded a $1.6 million prize by CMS. ClosedLoop won the CMS Challenge in part due to its effectiveness at addressing hidden algorithmic biases that, when left unchecked, can make health disparities worse.

Improving health equity is a core strategic objective of transformative value-based care programs. Being part of the AWS Healthcare Accelerator will enable ClosedLoop to share its healthcare-focused AI/ML platform and content to healthcare organizations throughout the AWS and KidsX networks that are interested in using SDoH data to identify and reduce health disparities.

"Health disparities cost the United States $320 billion each year, so reducing them is both a moral and financial imperative," said Andrew Eye, CEO and co-founder at ClosedLoop. "By leveraging the scalability and reliability of AWS service offerings, the ClosedLoop platform will help healthcare organizations leverage vast amounts of data from diverse sources to identify individuals with the most impactful health-related social needs."

"AWS looks forward to collaborating with this impressive group of startups who are helping reduce health disparities with thoughtful and inspiring solutions," said Jeff Kratz, general manager of Worldwide Public Sector Partners at AWS. "We believe that by working together, we can help them harness the power of the cloud to make access to healthcare more equitable."

LOS ANGELES - August 30, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. (www.swmc.com) CEO Pavan Agarwal is set to attend and speak at this year's The Science of Blockchain Conference 2022 (SBC '22). Co-organized by the Stanford Center for Blockchain Research (CBR) and IC3, the conference will be held at Stanford University, Aug. 29-31, 2022. 

Since their founding in 1980, Sun West Mortgage Company, Inc. ("Sun West"), a national leader in Mortgage Originations and Serving, has been committed to core values of people, experience, technology, and product. Now, after years of development, Sun West has recently launched the newest iteration of their proprietary AI platform, MORGAN™, which is redefining blockchain technology, banking tech and the mortgage industry. 

Powered by Sun West's sister technology company Celligence (www.celligence.com) and the mass adoption and introduction of blockchain innovation, MORGAN™ reverses what we know of the traditional home buying processes. Sun West's novel application of open ledger technology is ground-breaking and truly advances how real estate sales are transacted and completed.

Pavan Agarwal, founder and CEO of Sun West & Celligence, will attend this year's SBC'22 conference and take to the stage to detail just how Sun West's MORGAN™ employs blockchain technology to convert mortgages into NFTs, thereby removing traditional home buying hurdles, especially for underserved communities.

Marking how the company's latest advanced technology loan product seeks to reach independent, truthful lending and larger equality in the real estate market with built-in blockchain technology, Agarwal will showcase how MORGAN™ is truly one-of-its-kind, and nothing like you've seen before - you will not want to miss it! 

Now in its fifth year, The Science of Blockchain Conference focuses on technical innovations in the blockchain ecosystem and brings together researchers and practitioners working in the space. The event will showcase the application of cryptography, decentralized protocols, formal methods and empirical analysis to improve the security and scalability of blockchain deployments.  

The conference hosts affiliated workshops related to cryptography, distributed systems and secure computing by fostering collaboration among practitioners and researchers working on blockchain technology. It welcomes the very best in the world of blockchain and crypto space to be program speakers. The full speaker program can be found here.

Mr Agarwal explained "The Framers of the US Constitution understood that land ownership is the path to true political and economic freedom. Although much work is still to be done to achieve universal fair housing & lending, the American system has intentionally distributed property ownership across a broad section of the population. My implementation of the blockchain in Morgan™ is a decentralized platform that increases the accessibility, agility, and transparency of trading real estate amongst Americans and strengthens our Republic. Real estate ownership is deliberately distributed, and I have created Morgan™ so that control of property rights can never fall into the hands of the few."

The conference is free to attend in-person and remotely via live-stream. For full event information visit https://cbr.stanford.edu/sbc22.

Eyenovia’s Novel Optejet® Dispenser Puts People’s Eyes First

Eyenovia’s Novel Optejet® Dispenser Puts People’s Eyes First

While traditional eye drop bottles require hand-eye coordination and deliver four to five times more medication than the human eye can hold, the Optejet® dispenser's human-centric design administers an easier, more accurate and appropriate dose directly where it is needed in the eye.

NEW YORK - August 30, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Eyenovia, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYEN), an ophthalmic pharmaceutical technology company developing a pipeline of microdose array print (MAP™) therapeutics, brings human-centric design to ophthalmology with its novel Optejet® dispenser. 

Traditional eye drops normally overdose the patient's eye with medication and preservatives. Eyenovia's easy-to-use, novel Optejet® dispenser administers precisely 8µL of medication to the eye, effectively treating the patient's condition while creating a more gentle dosing experience. 

"The unique delivery mechanism of the Optejet® will fundamentally change how we think about eye medication," said Michael Rowe, CEO of Eyenovia. "Right now, traditional eye drops can result in significant dose-related side effects for the treatment of chronic illnesses like glaucoma. The Optejet® dispenser is designed for patients to experience easier administration and fewer side effects with similar efficacy."

The Optejet® dispenser administers ophthalmic solutions horizontally using Eyenovia's proprietary Microdose Array Print (MAP™) technology. The system functions similar to an inkjet printer, delivering accurate microdoses through a precision spray. Traditional eye drops deliver four to five times larger volume than the human eye can actually hold, which causes eye drops to roll down the face and overdose the eye with preservatives. 

Poor delivery of eye drops is more than an inconvenience; it can prevent patients from using necessary medication because of the side effects. For example, with medication to help dilate the pupils for eye exams, up to 23% of patients experienced stinging and burning with the eye drops, causing patients to forgo eye exams. In Eyenovia studies, less than 1% of patients experienced stinging and burning. 

"Medications only work if patients take them, and with the Optejet, we have designed a way for patients to benefit from an easy-to-use, appropriate, lower dose spray that results in similar efficacy. We're excited for physicians and providers to be able to offer this revolutionary technology in the near future to patients who deserve a more positive experience," said Rowe.

Eyenovia's first marketed invention is expected to be MydCombi™, a first-in-class drug-device combination microdose for in-office pupil dilation. This potentially will help save physician's chair time, eliminating the traditional three eyedrops used for a patient's eye exam. Other exciting innovations in the Eyenovia pipeline include MicroLine (for the treatment of Presbyopia) and MicroPine (for the treatment of Myopia).

Novant Health Improves Patient Collection Rates and Satisfaction Through Partnership With Cedar

Novant Health Improves Patient Collection Rates and Satisfaction Through Partnership With Cedar

One of the nation's largest health systems sees a 9x ROI with Cedar Pay; demonstrates impact of investing in the consumer experience

NEW YORK, NY and WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - August 30, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Novant Health, one of the largest healthcare systems in the Southeast, has significantly improved its patient financial experience by partnering with Cedar, an enterprise healthcare engagement platform that improves the end-to-end consumer financial journey. By investing in Cedar Pay, Cedar's post-visit billing and payment platform, Novant Health continues to lead the way when it comes to bringing digital innovation to the revenue cycle.

For years, Novant Health had worked to modernize their revenue cycle organization, leaning on mail, email and EHR communications to reach patients. While these initiatives drove incremental improvements, the health system identified two key opportunities in 2019 to truly enable a more consumer-centric experience for their patients:

  1. Combining Novant Health's acute and ambulatory services into a single billing experience. While the organization had tried to combine physician and facility billing for years, they had always been met with pushback from vendors or complex EHR upgrades that could fundamentally break their existing processes. 
     
  2. Making bill payment a low friction, easy to navigate experience for both patients and team members. Novant Health wanted to help patients understand how their payments work and how their insurance benefits applied. In order to do so, they needed to personalize the experience, using mobile technology that consumers were already familiar with. 

To address these challenges, Novant Health invested in Cedar Pay. Cedar Pay delivers personalized billing through outreach, messaging and bill resolution based on a variety of unique factors and preferences. The platform is fully integrated with Novant Health's existing Epic EHR system across both hospital billing and physician billing. 

As a result of their implementation of Cedar Pay, Novant Health has seen a material rise in collections over a 12-month period, amounting to tens of millions of dollars, as well as: 

  • 90% patient satisfaction score
  • 87% of collections now completely self-serviced
  • 43% drop in days to collect

"Investing in a consumer engagement platform like Cedar is something we had wanted to do for a long time as part of our digital transformation strategy—we wanted to create a singular financial experience that allows our patients to pay with the technology we keep in our pockets," said Geoff Gardner, senior vice president of Finance at Novant Health. "Cedar has been a great partner to us in our commitment to delivering a remarkable healthcare experience to our community; the results truly speak for themselves, as we have been able to increase collections while also improving patient satisfaction." 

"At Cedar, we know that engaged, happy patients lead to better outcomes, and the best way to improve patient satisfaction is by implementing consumer-friendly technology," said Florian Otto, CEO and co-founder of Cedar. "It's been a privilege working with such an innovative health system like Novant Health, and we look forward to continuing our partnership and continuing to impact the lives of their patients."
