SpineDecide was the first of 13 patient education apps from Orca which have revolutionized patient education of the spine, eyes, and the heart. Today we’re seeing HeartDecide. And yes they somehow won Launch! at Health 2.0 Europe in 2011, even though Matt was stuck in the Paris airport the whole time.
Launch! is a series of rapid-fire, back-to-back, 3.5 minute demos from new, buzz-worthy companies making their debut at Health 2.0. At the end, the audience will vote on a winner who will be invited to demo on the 2013 main-stage in San Francisco. Since it’s inception in 2008, Launch! has introduced over 45 new companies and products, including Unity Medical, Remedy Ventures, TheCarrot, and the WSJ’s 2010 top (and not just in health!) start-up company, Castlight Health.
Matt Berry, CEO, Orca Health
Orca Health has been stealthily releasing visually beautiful iPad patient education apps over the past few months, but this is the first time you’ll see them at any conference. Watch out for the simulation of cataracts and macular degeneration! We were going to tell you that CEO Matt Berry played quarterback at BYU and make comparisons to Steve Young, but then we realized that no one in Europe knows what that means.
