Bolstering Florida’s unique research and business alliance network, The Florida Institute for the Commercialization of Public Research recently announced a funding agreement with Orlando’s Mend VIP, whose technology evolved at the University of Central Florida.
Mend VIP operates technology to enhance patient experience through state-of-the-art programs by providing platforms to eliminate down time in appointment scheduling and waiting rooms, as well as enabling post-appointment communication, through telemedicine designed to “virtualize” care when in-person exams are not essential.
"We help providers create a modern health care experience for their patients while enhancing their bottom lines," Matt McBride, Mend VIP's founder and CEO, said. "With intelligent scheduling, advanced telemedicine technology, and streamlined communications throughout the entire process, our approach will improve both patient and physician satisfaction."
Mend Inc.’s team comprises technologists, entrepreneurs and developers.
The Institute directly supports the development of new business entities dependent on publicly funded research and assists early-stage funding for companies created in affiliation with Florida institutions of research and higher education.
"The Mend VIP platform is addressing a significant need in the health care system, and the Institute looks forward to the company's future growth and success," Dr. Jackson Streeter, CEO of the Florida Institute for the Commercialization of Public Research, said.
The Institute has offices in both Gainesville and Boca Raton.
