Company Profiles:


Tonic ( is an iPad-based medical data collection platform that uses extremely high patient engagement to dramatically improve the process of gathering, analyzing and using patient data. Tonic is currently installed or about to be installed at such leading health systems as Kaiser Permanente, the Mayo Clinic, Mass General, New York Presbyterian, UCSF, UCLA, the VA, Seattle Children's Hospital, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, Florida Hospital and Georgetown Medical Center, among others.

Keas ( is the most engaging wellness program in the workplace. Keas promotes healthy behavior and teamwork with interactive media that delivers relevant, individualized content to hundreds of thousands of employees. Keas has a proven track record of supporting corporate HR in increasing retention, productivity, teamwork, collaboration, and competitiveness. By rewarding people for achieving simple exercise and nutrition goals, employee health is improved and overall healthcare costs are decreased.


Zamzee ( is a social enterprise on a mission to make it easier for tweens and families to be more physically active. The Zamzee meter and online experience is the result of several years of research, creative thinking and design based on feedback from kids and families. Today we're proud to say studies show that kids who use Zamzee move almost 60% more on average than kids who do not - that's an extra 45 minutes of non-stop pushups each week.


Ayogo ( motivates people to change their lives, one fun social game at a time. We apply the behavioral psychology of games and play to the management of chronic health conditions, and patient adherence.

Better Through Play: Games & Apps for Patient Engagement & Adherence.
