TAFi CEO to Participate in HLTH Startup Pitch

WHO:
Mel (Malka) Cohen is the CEO and co-founder of TAFi, a clinical data integration platform that seamlessly blends data streams from multiple clinical and non-clinical sources and connects them to the EMR, providing a holistic and unified view of patients. Founded in 2016, the company unlocks and unifies patient data, providing clinicians with visibility into the information they need in order to make better care decisions. TAFi works with healthcare organizations, software vendors and payers, offering a scalable and secure technology that aggregates, normalizes and stores the data in a centralized layer on which vendors can run analytics or other clinical support tools. The company’s platform is quick to deploy and integrate with new applications without the need for expensive services or IT staff involvement, and enables application developers and medical device manufacturers to design products around a single API. As a result of implementing TAFi, organizations can realize reduced operational costs and improved outcomes.
