Dr. Shashi Kusuma Presents a New Emerging Mobile Health Community at the 2015 New England Venture Summit
Symplast was selected as one of the Top 50 Innovators by the New England Venture Summit. Dr. Shashi Kusuma traveled to Boston and presented at the 10th annual investment summit.
Dr. Kusuma gave a visual presentation on the role mobility is playing in the ever-changing health IT landscape. He showcased Symplast to demonstrate the need for starting from scratch to create a new ecosystem built on mobility that breaks down the barriers of communication between doctors, patients and ancillary healthcare team members.
Dr. Kusuma summarized his vision: “As a practicing surgeon, I know first-hand the limitations and frustrations that exist in healthcare. Technology is not the solution. Technology should be in the background, so that people can be the solution. We need to change the mind frame of our current software vendors to be patient- and physician-centric, instead of the current billing-centric products available. We all know that Meaningful Use is not working. Instead, our approach should be towards Meaningful Care. And the only way to get there is through smart mobile technology optimized to intuitively think like the user. Mobility solves many problems, including interoperability and patient interaction. The demand is there—it’s time for the industry to catch up to it.”
Dr. Kusuma and two other doctors founded medical software startup Symplast in 2013. The first complete, 100% mobile solution designed specifically for the plastic surgery and aesthetic industry, Symplast delivers a proprietary device-agnostic platform that allows a healthcare practice to save time and money while increasing patient engagement.
The 10th annual New England Venture Summit, presented by Young Startup Ventures, is the premier industry gathering connecting: venture capitalists, corporate VCs, angel investors, technology transfer professionals, senior executives of early stage and emerging growth companies, university researchers, incubators and premier service providers.
