Dayton startup POMIET named Top 10 healthcare startup of the year
Wednesday, October 31, 2018
Dayton startup POMIET has cracked the Top 10 list for Healthcare Tech’s startups of the year across the U.S.
POMIET is an acronym, cofounder Stacy Sheldon explains — the healthcare startup works to create “peace of mind in everyday technology.” The people in the room at the doctor’s office are central to the development of the software.
“We’re redesigning the interface to allow people to have a conversation about what they want in their care,” Sheldon said. “Technology should be engaging and easy to use. It should enable physicians, clinicians and patients, not get in the way.”
POMIET’s crown product to date is Healthii, an app created for physicians’ offices, and its own spinoff startup. Designed for a tablet, the app enables the doctor to have a natural, face-to-face conversation with her patient, rather than sit in a corner of the exam room typing in answers to a linear checklist of questions she is regulatory required to ask.
The app also integrates seamlessly into the patient’s electronic health record.
Sheldon is one of three cofounders of POMIET. Her partners Rob Keefer and Paul Spencer both bring software development backgrounds and masters degrees in human factors engineering to the table. Sheldon brings the business savvy with her prior experience behind-the-scenes of other early-stage companies.
