Current partnerships include the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, The Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts and Boston University Aphasia Resource Center.
Jean says she is impressed by the MedRhythms team. “I have been working with Brian and Owen for a few months and am impressed that both are A players who have the vision and ability to execute and overcome the many challenges that any early stage healthcare company faces. As founders, they’ve identified a market need, developed and filed a provisional patent for their first product, and laid out a thoughtful business foundation. Based on my own experience as an entrepreneur, I’m confident in the concept for MedRhythms and in Brian and Owen’s ability to lead the company to achieve that growth potential,” says Hoffman.
