With Data Dissect, clinicians and health researchers are now able to gather detailed information specific to any health condition in a fraction of the time and resources, when compared to current data collection processes.
The idea arose for founder and surgeon, Dr Sanjeev Khurana through the frustration that he shared with many clinical colleagues in not having access to often expensive resources required to perform routine quality control audits in their everyday practice.
This set Sanjeev on the path to creating Data Dissect, a healthcare system in which knowledge generation processes are embedded in daily practice to produce continual improvement in care – also known as a Learning Healthcare System.
Data Dissect has been successfully deployed in South Australia where it has generated a 22 per cent reduction in hospital stay for children with complicated appendicitis.
“As a senior clinician who has been exposed to the problems around data collection in health and the power of modern data science, I am driven by the urgent need to fill this huge gap in the healthcare system,” says Sanjeev. “The Data Dissect platform is an affordable tool that works for clinicians and researchers in their quest for capturing clean data.”
Sanjeev joined The Accelerator in 2019 to learn what it takes to be successful in creating a MedTech startup and to connect with a supportive network of people and companies.
Delivered by the MedTech Actuator, the 15-month, industry-led, venture-backed program aggressively funds and accelerates early-stage medical, health and biological technology startups. The MedTech Actuator works alongside venture capital partner Artesian to support startups on their journey.
Since coming on board with The Accelerator six months ago, Data Dissect have raised funds and generated a proof of concept and product validation.
“I highly recommend The Accelerator to MedTech entrepreneurs,” says Sanjeev. “Knowing what we know now, it is critical for success.”
