KinergyCare is a Virginia-based startup and a Virginia Bio member that is requesting feedback from this community on a care coaching and coordination approach that focuses on the needs of patients with cardiovascular disease. We’re pioneering a new approach that combines patient data on health capabilities with a personalized intervention based on behavioral science. The result should be a more personalized clinical intervention and coaching approach that better ensures lasting behavioral change. We’re looking to talk with stakeholders such as cardiologists, nurses, care management teams, and administrators to learn more about the unmet needs. This outreach is part of our participation in the Spring cohort of the Roanoke Acceleration and Mentoring Program (RAMP), so we would really appreciate any help. Please help us by filling in this brief, 10 question survey. Also, if you have some guidance or can connect us with someone in your network that fits the above roles please contact KinergyCare CEO Art Spivy at email@example.com or (571) 277-5373. Thanks for your help!
