FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York City, March 24, 2022
MyndYou is pleased to announce it has partnered with New York Ventures, the state’s venture capital arm that is part of Empire State Development. New York Ventures invests in companies to support innovation and improve the lives of New York’s residents. Senior Director Momo Bi will join MyndYou as a board observer.
New York Ventures invests in high-growth companies that are using technology to solve important problems, including improving population health and access to care while lowering healthcare costs.
MyndYou’s customizable, scalable, and cost-effective virtual care assistant, MyEleanor, uses advanced technology to close gaps in care, extend providers’ and payers’ reach, and engage patients. The platform delivers actionable data to care teams, but is as simple as a phone call for participants.
“With a population of more than 20 million and growing, ensuring the health and wellbeing of every resident in our state presents an incredible logistical challenge for our frontline health workers. New technology-based solutions like MyEleanor help relieve some of that pressure for New York’s healthcare providers, helping them to connect with populations that may otherwise experience barriers that limit their access to care,” Bi said.
“We’re aligned in our mission to improve access to care to underserved populations and improve the experience of healthcare providers in New York and beyond,” said MyndYou co-founder and CEO Ruth Poliakine Baruchi. “We’re excited about this partnership and for New York Venture’s support.”
The MyndYou team serves a higher mission to impact lives for the better. MyndYou’s AI-powered virtual care assistant, MyEleanor, helps care teams predict health risks and engage patients with the simplicity of a phone call. Eleanor conducts regular check-in calls that facilitate meaningful conversations and triage patients and members so the care team can focus their time where it’s most needed, maximizing productivity and effectiveness, saving money, and improving population health outcomes.
