Happy New Year Health 2.0 Dallas!
Hope everyone had a great holiday and thanks to everyone who joined us for the last happy hour of the year.
Our next meetup is coming up in just a few weeks. Join us on 1/28 over at Health Wildcatters at 5:30 PM to get 2016 rollin! The hot topic for the night...Trends in emergency medicine and the really cool stuff being built to help first responders as they spring to the rescue to treat patients.
Joining us for our 1-1 conversation is a good friend to our community, Lance Manning. Lance is the CEO of LanguageMAPS (http://www.1stminuteapp.com/), a company funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security through the EMERGE program run by Tech Wildcatters (http://interactives.dallasnews.com/2015/pitchday/week10.html). The company’s mobile app, 1st Minute (https://youtu.be/x6Uv9hxuqMc), helps our nation's paramedics, police force, fire fighters, and other brave heroes with language translation in under 60 seconds. The easy-to-use interface displays critical information from foreign language speakers during medical emergencies so they get the right care.
Bring some friends or colleagues and come out for a great night of networking and conversation with a local entrepreneur working hard to change the world!
Sponsor: Oscar Health
At Oscar, we wanted a better healthcare company, so we built one. We believe that health insurance should be simple, smart, and friendly. Founded in 2012, Oscar was the first health insurance company created for consumers in the new world of the Affordable Care Act. That means plans and benefits that are easy to understand, tools that save time and money, and people who want to help along the way.
Oscar is building better health insurance by using technology to simplify the entire experience. Our team of world-class engineers, data scientists, and healthcare experts have come together to tackle the industry’s toughest problems. We’re reinventing how to manage care, process medical claims, control healthcare costs, and provide transparency. With all the complexity hidden behind an easy experience for our members.
We’re on a mission to bring quality and value back together in American healthcare. We don’t just pay the bill—members trust Oscar to guide them to better doctors, better care, and lower costs.
