XLerateHealth Accelerator Selects Ten Healthcare Companies for Incoming Sixth Cohort


a Louisville-based healthcare accelerator, announced it has selected ten
companies to participate in this year's cohort of companies:

(Louisville, KY) develops artificially intelligent
physician workflow solutions for hospitals to yield lower overall costs
and higher reimbursements. Like Siri or Alexa for physicians, Airis acts
as a virtual assistant, aiding physicians in often-frustrating tasks
such as locating and communicating with staff.

Medical Partners
(Yardley, PA) has created an AI driven
analytics platform for the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) including
NICUtrition® Guidance, a compliance tool to help hospitals standardize
the practice of infant feeding in the NICU, and NICUtrition® MAGI which
uses predictive analytics to help identify infants at risk for gut

(Louisville, KY) provides unique video-based learning
content for healthcare students, workers and healthcare facilities. The
company's flagship product, RadTechBootCamp, is becoming an industry
standard for Radiology-based educational content.

Concussion Triage Network (Louisville, KY) has developed a
real-time assessment and referral network for athletic team coaches when
a player has a suspected head injury on the playing field. This tool
includes protocols for assessing the player's risk at the point and time
of injury, and provides a real-time connection to a national network of
concussion specialists and neurologists for assessment and referral to
the appropriate level of treatment.

Desicorp (Louisville, KY) is a biotechnology company focused on
developing a new method to extend the shelf-life of blood by drying it
to powder for applications in disaster relief situations, battlefield
settings, and in remote rural emergency rescue situations where blood
for transfusions is in limited supply and/or is difficult to store due
to limited availability of refrigeration.

EnMed MicroAnalytics (Charleston, SC) has developed a proprietary
method for detecting very low concentrations of lead and other heavy
metals collected from a single finger-or-heel stick. According to the
CDC, almost all U.S. children are at risk for lead poisoning. This
technology will enable routine (and ideally universal) screening of
every pregnant woman and newborn, and selected pediatric patients for
exposure to lead and other heavy metals.

(San Francisco, CA) provides nursing homes and assisted
living facilities a proactive solution to help solve problems related to
cognitively-impaired patients (e.g. Alzheimer's) wandering away from the
caregiving facility and potentially becoming lost or injured. By
discretely placing biosensors to learn the patient's normal patterns of
behavior, predictive analytics can alert caregivers to signs of
wandering and can then locate and redirect the person.

(Boston, MA) is a digital diagnostic for neurological
disorders which captures functional decline and allows for precise
monitoring of small changes in neurodegeneration. Using AI, nQ
evaluates passive data captured 24/7 to detect pathological signs of
disease earlier than current tools, track disease progression, and
measure impact of therapy. Used in Pharma clinical trials, it has been
clinically validated as a diagnostic tool for Parkinson's and is engaged
in Alzheimer's trials with the Cleveland Clinic.

Telasight (Louisville, KY) is a telehealth company providing
real-time practitioner to practitioner consults via phone,
video-conference, text and email. When a patient presents with an
unfamiliar or uncommon condition, a practitioner can now get a real-time
consultation from an up-to-date expert in their field to receive the
current standard of care and determine the best treatment and management

VB Health (Dallas, TX) is a Primary Care-Centered, Clinically
Integrated Organization ("CIO") specializing in the delivery of
comprehensive disease management and physician services to Medicare
Advantage Plans ("MA"), Medicaid Care Organizations ("MCO"), and other
risk-bearing entities including Accountable Care Organizations ("ACO")
for the clinical management of their high-risk membership.
