Cedars-Sinai health tech accelerator accepts Lumeon to 3rd class

Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai Medical Center selected Lumeon as one of 10 startups to join the third class of its health tech program, called Cedars-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars, Sept. 19.

Each of the 10 startups will complete a three-month program, refining their product with mentoring from Cedars-Sinai physicians and executives. The accelerator also provides each startup with an initial investment of $120,000 and connects participants with investors, mentors, alumni and corporate partners through the entrepreneur network Techstars.

Lumeon helps hospitals manage care pathways by automating processes and providing real-time situational awareness. Through the accelerator, the startup will collaborate with Cedars-Sinai to identify digital care pathways that streamline and personalize the surgery experience for patients. Using digital protocols, Lumeon will aim to reduce cancelations and lower readmissions for surgical patients.

"Today, no one has really solved the fundamental issue of care fragmentation, or found a way to deliver end-to-end personalized care at scale, without placing huge strain on resources," said Robbie Hughes, founder and CEO of Lumeon. "The challenge is rarely the care decisions; it's the difficulty operationalizing them into a longitudinal plan that reliably delivers the best possible care, every time, for every patient."
