MBBP client WatchRx, is an early stage startup founded while trying to help aging parents manage their medications and health conditions remotely. Current solutions available in the market, like mobile apps and pill caps/bottles, didn’t fit the need and only added to the confusion. WatchRx provides a a simple dedicated reminder solution. From voice reminders to GPS tracking this device addresses so many needs. The watch can even send alerts to family and caregivers.
The Boston Scientific Connected Patient Challenge is an open competition focused on ideas and early-stage companies that improve patient care and/or drive down the cost of health care through the use of Remote Patient Monitoring using wearable, implantable or ubiquitous sensors. The top five ideas based on the online crowd voting and online judge scores were honored at a live event on February 25, 2016, where they presented their ideas to the Challenge Sponsors and fellow participants. Arun Buduri, Founder and Chief Product Officer, presented for WatchRx and walked away the winner! Watch the pitch (skip to 56:45) and award (skip to 1:53:00) here.
This isn’t the only thing the Greater Boston-based company is celebrating. Just yesterday WatchRx Founder and CEO Jayanthi Narasimhan was awarded 2016 Women to Watch in Science & Technology by the Boston Business Journal.
Congrats to WatchRx. If you aren’t a client to “watch” we don’t know who is!
