On Friday, we looked at the increasing cost of health & care in the States, and compare it to stagnating outcomes.

This broken dynamic creates opportunities for US startups such as K4Connect, cofounded by Scott Moody.
Before K4Connect, Moody built, and then sold to Apple, the precursor to TouchID. In his new venture, K4Connect provides the care-tech infrastructure to (as of last year) 800 retirement homes in the US.
Following a $21 million raise last year, K4Connect has been busy. Most recently they’ve installed 1,400 Amazon Echo Shows in North Carolina.
From their press release:
“Our enterprise management capabilities enable us to safely deliver, deploy and support these devices at scale, getting them into the hands of communities quickly with absolute minimal impact on staff to manage setup and onboarding,” K4Connect Chief Growth Officer Keith Stewart said.
The company’s focus is not so much on service user outcomes, and more on efficiently scaling a digital platform. As the health and care system is under strain, a fast solution to digitise systems is needed, by authorities, more than ever.
Until tomorrow,
Hector
