Updates from a few of the graduated companies:

Cellanyx Diagnostics

“Cellanyx Diagnostics is developing a proprietary live cell phenotypic cancer diagnostic platform to aid clinical decision making. Cellanyx has demonstrated clinical proof-of-concept for its lead test, aimed at improving risk stratification in the 250,000 US patients annually diagnosed with low and intermediate risk prostate cancer, and generated promising early data in other cancers. A clinical trial to demonstrate our test’s risk stratification potential in patients undergoing prostate needle biopsies is planned for 2016 which will lay the groundwork for commercialization of the test in 2017.” Read more about the Cellanyx graduation here.

ProValens

“We are preparing to launch CaretoPLan.com in March.  This is to help caregivers of patients with dementia find things that are helpful.  Our goal in 2016 is to expand this effort to other communities across the U.S.  We are building a Resource Registry that extends beyond dementia and an intelligent system for referring resource to people with chronic diseases.”

-Rick Tanler, ProValens

Perk Health

We just launched a new product that expands on the success of our first one. Our virtual coach can now personalize based on more personality factors and coach people through more situations. It also gives us the ability to now build wellness programs around not just fitness but also nutrition, stress, mental health and more. On top of that we’ve expanded the social features, game mechanics, and made it even easier to rollout and manage for new customers. In 2016 we’ve really adopted a metrics first approach to goal setting. Right now the focus is on customer success and customer growth metrics.”

-Zach McGill, CEO, Perk Health

Previous to the abovementioned companies, LogicStream Health also successfully transitioned out of TreeHouse Health in September 2015.
