HealthXL facilitated the introduction and eventual “marriage” of HealthBeacon with the Cleveland Clinic for purposes of helping HealthBeacon scale in the US market.
Kieran Daly, CEO of HealthBeacon joins Pat Salber (@docweighsin) from Dublin, Ireland to talk about the newly forged partnership between HealthBeacon, HealthXL and Cleveland Clinic. HealthBeacon’s product is a “smart” sharps bin for the disposal of syringes and needles used to self-administer injectable drugs. Because there is a tight link between disposal of the sharps and self-administration of the medication, tracking when they are tossed into the bin serves as a good proxy for whether or not patients are taking their medications. The hope is that patients and their doctors will use this information to improve adherance to the treatment plan.
HealthXL, a Dublin-based company that matches young companies with strategics, facilitated the introduction and eventual “marriage” of HealthBeacon with the Cleveland Clinic in the United States for the purposes of helping HealthBeacon scale in the US market.
