FierceHealthcare Names Elemeno Health as a 2019 “Fierce 15” Company

OAKLAND, Calif., January 8, 2019 – Elemeno Health, the developer of a proprietary cloud-based solution for front-line healthcare teams, today announced that it has been named one of the 2019 Fierce 15 companies by FierceHealthcare, designating it as one of the most promising healthcare companies in the industry.

Developed in collaboration with UCSF Medical Center, the Elemeno solution provides “just-in-time” training, which enables front-line medical professionals to quickly access interactive guidelines, smart checklists and concise how-to videos from any device, 24/7.

“Taking policy to practice is the greatest challenge in healthcare today,” said Nancy Shibata, senior vice president of operations and Chief Nursing Officer at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. “Our partnership with Elemeno Health has resulted in an efficient way to push out new ‘just-in-time’ information, which helps us support complex information exchange in a rapidly changing environment.”

The Elemeno solution simplifies complicated best practices into bite-sized learning and includes both social and “gamification” elements designed to engage and motivate team members. As a result, hospital staff can strategically implement priority best practices and drive front-line adoption at scale to help improve quality, safety and outcomes for patients.

“We recognize that nurses, doctors, and staff are already working incredibly hard; practices are growing so fast that mastery can feel impossible,” said Arup Roy-Burman, CEO and co-founder of Elemeno Health, and associate professor of pediatrics at UCSF. “We empower front-line caregivers through the mobile-friendly delivery of knowledge that is both accessible and actionable so the front-lines can work smarter, not harder.”

“This year’s Fierce15 winners show companies both large and small are finding new and innovative ways to tackle healthcare’s most pressing challenges,” said Tina Reed, FierceHealthcare’s executive health and hospitals editor.
