50% of patient wait times in the ER can be attributed to waiting for specialists to arrive. The ER staff at Rhode Island Hospital (affiliated with Brown University) are using EyeSight to beam consulting physicians into the ER when consulting physicians would otherwise be unable to physically come in and see patients. We'd like to highlight the clinicians at Rhode Island Hospital, who recently went live with Pristine EyeSight in the ER. We'd like to especially thank Dr. Paul Porter, Dr. Peter Chai, and Dr. Roger Wu for driving the project. You can see videos EyeSight live by clicking on the image above.
Since the last episode of the Pristine Story, we pivoted and hit our most important milestone to date: revenue! We are increasingly focusing on mobile healthcare settings such as the ER, emergency response, and wound care. We deployed EyeSight with our first partner, Wound Care Advantage (WCA), to power telemedicine wound care consults between hospitals and outpatient wound care centers. The deployment went smoothly. This quote from Pete, IT Director at WCA sums up our experiences:
In the last episode of the Pristine Story, I mentioned that we'd be travelling all over the country visiting with medical centers. I'm happy to report that the last six weeks have been fruitful. We're going into 2014 with a strong pipeline. We're targeting first revenue in January. We are going to begin rolling out Pristine EyeSight to hospitals and outpatient centers on a regular basis starting in just a few weeks.
Pristine is growing into a bonafide company. We're now actively executing, refining, and strategizing across most common business fronts: piloting at UC Irvine Medical Center, managing a substantial sales pipeline, executing on a marketing and PR plan, raising capital, refining the products, and establishing internal infrastructure and processes as the team grows. Speaking of which...
In the last episode of the Pristine Story, I mentioned that we'd been building the core infrastructure so that we could execute on our first pilots. I'm happy to report that things are going remarkably well. Engineering is actually a few days ahead of schedule. Mark and Patrick will be on site with our first pilot site testing our software with live patients in surgery on September 30th.
The past few weeks have been all about building and investing in Pristine's future across virtually every dimension of the business: talent, work environment, sales infrastructure, marketing, PR, and capital.The pistons are firing:
It's been a busy couple weeks for us. We can't believe how fast things are moving, or how many people have been offering their help and support. It's been really incredible. I can't possibly express my gratitude enough. Thank you thank you thank you to everyone that's helped!
I send out an email to everyone that we're talking with called "The Pristine Story" every few weeks to provide updates on what we've done and where we're going. I sent out the first one a few weeks ago, so this is a bit dated. The rest will be more timely moving forward.
