This is a rapidly-growing startup company that is an off-shoot of another successful startup company that was recently sold. This company has developed a proprietary algorithm that identifies top medical facilities, doctors, medical equipment and x-ray professionals to reduce radiology misdiagnosis and improve patient outcomes. The company partners with large self insured employers to provide this benefit to their employees resulting in dramatic cost savings for the employer as their employees recover from illness faster and less expensively. This company just signed up their first client, an extremely large self-insured national employer with over 1 million employees.
