Melius Outcomes™ is a cloud-based software/services solution for hospital clinicians to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. Using a hospital’s existing electronic health records (EHR) system, Melius identifies point-of-care quality issues and then provides evidence-based recommendations and training videos to correct them.
AkkeNeel Talsma is the Founder and CEO of Melius Outcomes. Dr. Talsma led the development of a prototype data methodology from initial concept to a 25-hospital pilot demonstrating significantly improved surgical patient outcomes. She has over 20 years of clinical performance improvement expertise and is a noted international speaker on quality and safety. Dr. Talsma completed her graduate nursing education from the University of Michigan.
Update - Year 1:
Melius Outcomes has seen great progress in 2017 with the addition of a business development officer, Erik Lovell. We have also rounded out our technical capacity (database developer, analytics) and our targeted market information. We received two years of data from a previous pilot hospital that is used for demo purposes. Melius has started working with a Michigan health system (8 hospitals) to implement the Melius measures for a prototype version. Fundraising in 2017 includes an initial round from the founders, MedHealth ($10K) and completion of BAF allocated projects. We are working on a pre-seed round ($300k) and are pursuing private investors and grant opportunities to complete the MVP and develop customers in our target market.
