StartUPDATES: New developments from healthcare startups
Prealize, an artificial intelligence-enabled health insights company, was selected as a winner of the Innovation in Healthcare Analytics Award, presented as part of the 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Awards program. This is the second consecutive year that Prealize has been honored for its work to advance predictive analytics in healthcare. Prealize supports the delivery of proactive healthcare by leveraging the power of AI and machine learning (ML) to identify not only patients at rising risk of health changes but also the timing and key drivers of that risk.
The company is in a high growth period and has expanded its leadership team with the addition of Sri Gopalsamy as chief technology officer. In this role, Gopalsamy leads the engineering and data science teams responsible to set the company’s technical direction, deliver features that fill out Prealize’s product lines, develop a system-level approach for keeping its ML models current, and scale infrastructure to handle massive amounts of healthcare data to be analyzed in real time.
Prior to joining Prealize, Gopalsamy was a senior director of Software Engineering for Enlighted Inc., which was successfully acquired by Siemens to grow its Internet of Things (IoT) business for the healthcare vertical. He has also held previous engineering leadership roles at PubMatic, where he was vice president of Engineering, responsible for big data, real-time analytics and machine learning; as well as Asurion and Walmart Global eCommerce.
