Better Data for Radiologists and Oncologists
For medical professionals operating in the radiology-oncology ecosystem, HealthMynehttp://healthmyne.com/
developed a clinically driven quantitative imaging platform to help improve communication, elevate quality and generate new data that provides actionable insight with improved performance. Its clients are primarily radiologists and oncologists working at cancer centers.
Cofounder Praveen Sinha, the company’s CEO for a time and now its vice president of business development, has a Ph.D. in physics, a master’s degree in computer science and an MBA. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in radiation oncology at UW-Madison.
Leveraging Insights to Improve Patient Care
In the beginning, HealthMyne’s founders spent six months interviewing radiologists and oncologists to understand the challenges they face in having access to all the relevant patient information in one place and in interpreting that data. “From day one, we have engaged our users to make sure we are developing something that really helps them provide better patient care,” says Sinha. “In short, we took time to understand their workflow and make sure we are solving real problems they face.”
HealthMyne is currently working with some of the top cancer centers in the U.S. to seek input on the product and have it clinically installed and evaluated, and is in talks engaged with about a dozen other comprehensive cancer centers to become early adopters. Ultimately, plans call for introducing the product to the community oncology centers where more than 80 percent of U.S. cancer patients get treated. The company’s goal is to first serve the U.S. market and then launch internationally. To help it attract investment, the Madison-based company has been approved for investor tax credit certification through the Qualified New Business Venture Program.
