Kencor Health: Driving Innovations in Remote Patient Monitoring
Muthu Krishnan, Founder and CEO, Kencor Health
Under the visionary leadership of the founder and CEO, Muthu Krishnan, Kencor Health revolutionizes patient engagement and monitoring by connecting patients with care teams through an AI-powered RPM plat¬form, SAMiTM. Krishnan’s 17-year long experience in the health¬care field, especially in the payor and provider market, has been instrumental in shaping the company’s present day reputation. Founded in 2019, Kencor Health’s unique human-centered ap¬proach to RPM allows providers to streamline clinical process¬es and enable better care coordination. “Earlier in my career, I observed a wide gap between electronic health records and patient care, and wanted to link the two via an automated eco¬system. That was the foundation stone for Kencor Health. Even before establishing the company, I successfully received around $1.6 million investment from over 20 physicians who found the concept innovative.” says Krishnan.
Initially, Kencor Health focused on reducing hospital read¬mission but soon branched through patient engagement into the RPM realm. SAMiTM works in tandem with the Kencor Health Ecosystem, enabling clinics, medical facilities, and hospitals in democratizing remote healthcare. SAMiTM has been specially designed to become a virtual companion for patients and an as¬sistant for the care team that connects both parties in real-time through a single click. The solution sports an in¬teractive bot that converses with patients and reminds them about measuring vitals, including blood pressure, weight, pulse, and temperature. It automatically encrypts and transmits the data through Bluetooth technology to its HIPAA-hosted cloud and ultimately to the care team. The team can sort the data into three zones— red, yellow, and green—based on the degree of criticality. SAMiTM allows the care team to monitor over 400 patients within 10 minutes from a single dash¬board instead of managing them traditionally. In addition to its RPM solutions, Kencor Health also developed a CDC-approved COVID-19 screening app and was among the first ones to make it available on the Apple and Google Play Store. This opportunity of launching a COVID-19-specific product enabled the company to pivot successfully and quickly amidst the pandemic in terms of revenue, customers, and investors.
Krishnan attributes the success of Kencor Health to its board of leaders comprising healthcare veterans who, with a collective experience of 100 years and entrepreneurial mindset, show utmost dedication towards impacting the healthcare industry positively. “The leadership team has a wealth of knowledge regarding the field and the products. It is with their help that Kencor Health is standing strong in today’s market,” prides Krishnan.
The robust ecosystem has helped Kencor Health garner several success stories within a short span of four years. For example, when a renowned hospital in Northern California needed a solution to reduce readmissions and receive RPM reimbursement, they found SAMiTM ticking all boxes. Before engaging with the company, the hospital had care coordinators who manually intervened to remind patients about checking vitals. Within a month of deploying SAMiTM, the client reduced readmissions by 45% and improved the patient engagement efforts. In another instance, a nephrology-specializing facility had a similar experience where they gained detailed visibility into patients’ conditions and were able to provide patient-specific care for a better health experience.
We would like strive towards becoming the go-to partner for customers scouring for best-in-class RPM
Powered by the support of experienced veterans and customer appreciation, Kencor Health is steadily moving ahead to become a unicorn in the RPM space. Furthermore, the company is collaborating with a prestigious institution on a clinical study to show how SAMiTM automatically completes all mundane tasks daily and helps providers create better treatment plans for hypertension patients. “I am proud to say that the road we took was challenging but Kencor Health has successfully survived and thrived. Even during COVID-19, we did not stop and pivoted by developing and updating the platform’s capabilities. We aim to become the go-to partner for customers scouring for the best RPM solution,” concludes Krishnan.
