Company Lab Accelerator Startups Pitch Ideas to Make Healthcare Better and More Convenient

Rhinogram President and Chief Product Officer Kathy Ford presented alongside other innovators as part of the Company Lab’s first HealthTech Accelerator Demo Day at Unum.

“…Providing convenience in health care was the big theme of the Company Lab’s first HealthTech Accelerator Demo Day at Unum on Wednesday, where seven of the eight companies pitched their ideas in an attempt to market their product and attract potential investors. In nine weeks, the eight companies had more than 100 meetings with industry leaders combined and more than 50 pitches to investors that yielded $20 million in additional funding.

‘Convenience has to be a requirement in health care just like it is in everything else that we do in life,’ said Kathy Ford, president and chief product officer at Rhinogram. ‘From Uber to Amazon Prime, people expect convenience in every other aspect of their lives, so why shouldn’t they expect it from their clinicians,’ Ford explained.”
