  • Healthcare App Architecture 101

    Troutman Sanders

    Have you ever wondered what goes into creating an app? Do you have an idea that you would want to turn into an app? Mobile app developer and entrepreneur, David Kay will be here to give a high level overview of mobile application technology and what goes into creating a solid healthcare app. So join us for a little bit of networking and a lot of great discussions on revolutionizing health care through the use of well designed and solution meeting applications. Food and refreshments will be provided! ======================================= Presentation Topic: Healthcare App Architecture 101 Using a patient-facing app as our primary case study, we'll learn: * How are apps made? * How much does development typically cost? * How YOU can design your own app (and maybe even develop it!). * What can apps do? What can't they do? * What's a good use case for an app? * What's a web app? What's a native app? When would I want to prefer one over the other? * How can I build an app on a zero-dollar budget? And what if I had all the money in the world? * How do I find a good programmer? How do I build a good development team? Alternatively, how do I build an app without a programmer? * How to make smart technology decisions. * Buy vs build? * How to manage an app develoment project. * What you need to know about HIPAA and FDA regulation. You can also expect a brief intro to programmer culture, Windows vs Linux, and how your business can benefit from open source. And, finally, we'll touch on business models for healthcare apps. ======================================= About the Speaker: David Kay is a on a mission to simplify medical diagnostics by wielding modern technology. He currently leads software development at SALT, a medical device startup focused on bringing hassle-free salt monitoring to patients at home. Happy to have been a Google engineer, and even happier to have rapidly resigned, David feels most alive when pushing his own boundaries and the stakes are high. He was the founding CTO at EnHatch, which provides sales and marketing technology to medical device companies, and the founding CTO of Authy, a security startup which was recently acquired by Twilio. David also deeply enjoys teaching, and has led mobile development workshops at Princeton University and Rutgers University, taught Ruby on Rails at iHub Nairobi, and served as an Android instructor at General Assembly.

  • 2014 HTF Mingle And More

    The Chrysler Building: 405 Lexington Ave. (42nd St. Lexington)

    Please join us for the 2014 holiday celebration and more. We will meet and have drinks and refreshments and will stage two speakers for about an hour of presentation. ============================ Topic 1: Decision Support Systems for Infectious Diseases Speaker- Paul Ehrlich, MD The antibiotic era is approximately 100 years old, but, according to the World Health Organization, may be coming to an end. Overuse and misuse of antimicrobial agents have bred resistant "superbugs" that could lead us to an age where antibiotics are no longer effective. The economic impact has been estimated conservatively at $35B in the US alone. While consultative programs such as Antimicrobial Stewardship programs have been effective in aiding in more judicious use of some of the more expensive drugs, resource limitations prevent such programs from being widely used. A ubiquitous, electronic decision support system at the point of prescribing is a critical must to allow us to continue to be successful against infectious diseases. Bio: Paul is a Venture Advisor at Gotham Ventures and enjoys identifying new technologies that have the potential to transform their industries. As both a physician and computer scientist, Paul’s main areas of focus are healthcare, technology and software. Paul enjoys teaching and mentoring new startups. In addition to helping launch an early-stage technology accelerator in Tel Aviv in partnership with Microsoft, Paul has been a mentor at the Blueprint Health accelerator in New York for several years. In both roles he has been involved in coaching early-stage companies as they refine and grow their businesses. He has also held teaching positions at several New York metro area medical schools. Prior to joining Gotham Ventures, Paul was Vice President of Clinical Informatics at Becton Dickinson (NYSE:BDX), a Fortune 500 medical device company. Before that, he was Chief Medical Officer at Cerner Corporation (NASDAQ:CERN) and Chief Medical Informatics Officer at SUNY Downstate Medical Center. Paul received his BA in Computer Science from Columbia University, his MD from the New York University School of Medicine and an MHA from Seton Hall University. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a Fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and a Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine. =============================== Topic 2: FDA Jurisdiction on mHealth Speaker- Clark G. Sullivan, JD Mobile health, or “mHealth,” is the use of portable devices such as smartphones and tablets for medical purposes, including diagnosis, treatment, or support of general health and well-being. More than 97,000 mHealth apps were available as of March 2013, according to one estimate, and some observers predict as many as 1.7 billion users of mHealth worldwide by 2018. The explosion of mobile health has become a challenge for the Food and Drug Administration, the agency responsible for ensuring that medical devices are safe and effective. This presentation will focus on the public health benefits and risks of mHealth devices and FDA jurisdiction and how FDA might best use its regulatory authority. Bio: Clark is a partner in Troutman Sanders’ New York office, where he heads the firm’s FDA regulatory practice. Clark is also a chemical engineer and patent attorney, and focuses his time in the pharmaceutical, medical device, and healthcare industries. Clark has supported the growth of a number of venture-backed companies over the years, including several pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies with propriety treatment technologies. He helped them secure funding, coordinated their patent and regulatory approval strategies, and negotiated the ultimate sale and disposition of their businesses. He has written several papers on personalized medicine, and is very interested in the role that health-technology can play in the efficient selection and utilization of medicines and medical therapies. Clark is also an avid writer, serving on the editorial boards for Pharmaceutical Patent Analyst and Regulatory Focus, the monthly journal of the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society. Prior to joining Troutman Sanders, Clark was an attorney at King and Spalding in Atlanta, Georgia. ==================================== Agenda- 6:00-7:00PM: Networking Reception 7:00-8:00PM: Announcements and Presentations 8:00-8:30PM: Networking with Speakers A big "Thank You" to our sponsor Troutman Sanders for providing the venue, refreshments, and drinks.

  • Holiday Mixer

    Blueprint Health

    The holidays are coming up and we thought it would be a good time for to get together for some informal networking alongside some wine. That said we will also have a couple of translation software companies doing a system demo. Please join us before we close out for the year! Scheduled Demo: Canopy Apps Check out the 6 second Video of the app: https://vine.co/v/hp7iOQwJu5D A little more about us: Canopy Apps (http://www.canopyapps.com/) in NYC received $2M in grant funding from the National Institutes of Health’s Small Business Innovation Research program. With the grant, the company has been developing technology to help improve communication between healthcare providers and the growing number of patients who either do not speak English or those who have low health literacy, especially after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). What? The Canopy Translator (http://www.canopyapps.com/ecosystem/), which enables doctors and nurses to communicate with patients in different languages using thousands of routine medical phrases pre-translated into dozens of languages. The app also enables providers to call live telephone interpreters directly from their iOS devices (Android soon) for more complex conversations. Result? Within 2 months of beta, the app has been recognized as the Best Innovation amongst Medical Directors at the 2013 Meeting of American College of Emergency Physicians. Also, within the 2 months – the app is being deployed to pilot at dozens of hospitals across the nation such as NY Hospital of Queens and Mt. Sinai Hospital in NYC, which has the busiest ER in the nation. Back Story? Ran by two entrepreneurs with background story of immigrant parents struggling to communicate in America.
