XLerateHealth concluded its second class of healthcare start-ups with a demonstration to a crowd of healthcare professionals at the Nucleus Building in Louisville in late October. Each team provided polished presentations as an update while also pitching for potential partnerships and funding.
The event began with comments from Mert Iseri, co-founder of Swipe Sense, a hand hygiene company based out of Chicago. His company helps reduce hospital-acquired infections by using data collected when healthcare workers use hand sanitizers. The data is used to help reduce hospital-acquired infections by using data to improve the use of hand=hygiene protocols.
The second class of XlerateHealth graduates included:

The platform also offers games and classic television shows and movies.
