How We Will Make Money
We have unique mobile solution for the patients and sets us apart from everybody else. Our application brings several technology verticals using automated algorithms in one place for both providers and patients and tie them to the quality metrics. Our novelty is in simplicity for end users in this complex healthcare which resonates very well with the decision makers.
About our Competition
I think being a practicing physician gives a very unique prospective of the problem and hence creating solution which is meaningful to both patients and providers without increasing much time commitment from either of them. On other hand understanding of the financial aspect of healthcare helps us setting in our business strategy.
Progress with Customers to date
In three months of in market we signed our first client. Even being a bootstrapped start up we are in communications with several major health insurance plans, employers and even a Government agencies. Response is more than expected from all of them. We believe in HealthKOS so much that we have invested not only our valuable time but also more than million dollars. We believe this technology should be able to reach as many patients possible and need funding to support the mission.
New Orleans and Our Company
Our targeted patient population is 55 million medicare beneficaries out of which approx. 4 million in Florida. Florida is one of the top five states with highest number of medicare beneficaries hence priime market to target.
Projected 3 Year Growth
With 4% market penetration of medicare beneficaries (that is half the total numner of Florida medicare patients).
in three years total projected revenue for 2020 is $44 M.
We are marketing to large
to provide quality care and decrease cost of care. We believe the push of CMS to show innovation, quality improvement and decrease cost of care working in favor of HealthKOS success. We are using the price point as an advantage to get into this organization as vendor or as a risk partner.
There is no real competitor with comprehensive platform with all the features and benefits but there are others with specific targeted components.
