We at Bridgecrest Medical were delighted to be featured as one of Information Week’s 9 Healthcare Tech Startups To Watch. Here’s what Information Week’s Alison Diana wrote about us:
As venture capital flows into healthcare startups, look at some new companies that should be on your radar.
San Diego-based Bridgecrest Medical developed a data analytics service that garnered lots of attention during this year’s Ebola crisis. The company — which focuses on infectious disease tracking and fatigue management — teamed up with JAJ International to bring one-step mobile Ebola testing to market.
“We chose to provide infectious disease tracking with our platform from day one because we knew it meant a lot to our customers. At a mine site, for example, an infectious disease outbreak can stop production in its tracks,” founder Nathan Klarer told InformationWeek.
“When the Ebola outbreak happened this year, we were uniquely positioned to rapidly deploy our solution because of this,” he continued. “We realized this was a good opportunity to offer an enterprise quality infectious disease analytics solution to a broad audience of organizations in need.”
While much of the Ebola panic has quieted in the United States, the disease continues to ravage populations in West Africa. And, unfortunately, plenty of other contagious diseases — including the flu — affect millions of people across the globe each year.
