Doctors Build Mobile Tech to Save Kids’ Lives

THINKmd, founded by UVM Medical Center pediatric physicians, Dr. Barry Finette and Dr. Barry Heath, is a Burlington-based mobile medical technology company.  THINKmd’s, “Medsinc”, is a simple-to-use mobile clinical assessment, treatment and triage platform designed for minimally trained community health workers, primarily in emerging countries.  Medsinc assesses critical conditions for youth patients, primarily dehydration, respiratory distress, Sepsis and malnutrition.  The platform employs the same medical approach used by board certified pediatricians to assess sick children, and is presently being beta tested with NGOs, government and academic partners in strategic locations around the globe including Ecuador, Peru and Bangladesh.
