Sydney, 23rd June 2020 – Pen CS is pleased to announce the winners for the Pen CS Medtech Pitch Night, with Fishburners. The event is an initiative to support data-driven improvement in general practices and the winners are:
- Evrima Technologies, bringing clinical research to GPs in a scalable way, to help accelerate medical development and get new therapies to people who need them
- Foxo, an Enterprise communication platform for Health
- ClearSKY Genomics, a company that develops software to help doctors make sense of DNA
The winners will now collaborate in a co-design workshop with Pen CS for an opportunity for Topbar distribution, which is in more than 4,800 general practices across Australia.
“In many cases, patients are simply not aware of the clinical trials they could be participating in, nor are their GPs.” Charlotte Bradshaw, CEO of Evrima Technologies said “We’re committed to empowering GPs to have conversations with their patients about research as a care option and increase awareness of clinical trials in the community. We are delighted to have been selected as winners of the MedTech Pitch night and look forward to exploring initiatives to bring trials to GPs at scale via their Topbar application.”
“I’m thrilled to win the MedTech Pitch Night amongst so many innovative startups. The opportunity to integrate with Topbar is a significant leap forward for the business. It is an honour to be recognised by the Pen CS Team in supporting our work towards transformative real-time clinical communication,” said Luke Fletcher, Co-founder and CEO of Foxo.
The crowd-favourite was ClearSKY Genomics, a company that develops software to help doctors make sense of DNA. This was selected by the audience on the night, which included doctors, medical staff, startups and those interested in health innovation.
“GPs are going to play a critically important role in the adoption of clinical genomics. We’re excited to work with Pen CS to ensure that we’re best able to meet their needs,” said Alan Robertson, Founder of ClearSKY Genomics.
Other finalists included Prix Testing, a health start up that allows for remote patient blood and saliva testing and My Mirror, an online psychology ecosystem which improves connection between the GP, psychologist and patients.
Dr Kean-Seng Lim (Clinical lead and Co-founder of CareMonitor, Specialist General Practitioner and AMA NSW Former President), Peter Birch (experienced Healthcare Executive, Creator of Talking HealthTech podcast and Director of the Medical Software Industry Association) were judges on the night along with Product Innovation Lead Dinesh Reddy from Pen CS.
