To help fund Collective Medical, Green and van den Akker entered business plan competitions, with the motto “Save lives through better technology in healthcare,” and won a total of $15,000. “We didn’t try to raise money, we were more focused on making sure we can drive value for hospitals,” says van den Akker, who developed the technology using HL7 standards to connect different electronic health records. Green tried to drum up more customers, while holding jobs at National Instruments and later Dell in Austin, Texas.
CEO Jonathan Baran identifies two forces that have jump-started the company. Number one is that all sorts of routine tasks are piling up on physicians and staff, leading to high levels of burnout and negative consequences. “Health systems have really seen this problem and understand there has to be a better way to do this,” he says. Number two is a change in approach by the EHR vendors themselves. “When we started, it was a foreign concept to have an app store for the EHRs. None of them had one yet. But now we have seen widespread adoption of this model across all the major EHRs,” he says. “They now think about themselves as platforms and open marketplaces where people like us can build technology on top of APIs that allow us to integrate our technology into the workflow. That is a big piece. Without those two major forces—market awareness and enabling innovation by building on top of EHRs—this wouldn't be possible.”
“We’re putting collaboration at the heart of the solution to a fragmented healthcare system,” Chris Klomp, CEO of Collective Medical, said in a statement. “Our job is to connect care teams. By arming providers and payers with real-time insights and a platform to seamlessly collaborate across organizations and care settings, we ensure patients don’t slip through the cracks. … We are beyond excited and grateful to be joined by such an extraordinary group of investors who share our vision for further enriching and expanding our network to help care teams provide the most effective care possible.”
One of the ex-ganja peddlers from Fateh Nagar said, `the area is under complete surveillance and many have left such illegal businesses in the locality. However, few of the peddlers continue to sell ganja as they own a vehicle which helps them deliver the drug at a different and preferably safe spot in the city. ``The buyers have the contact details and everything is planned over a phone call”, he said. 
With the shift in federal policy, some investors are skirting the cannabis industry by either choosing to wait out the storm or by leaving it altogether for fear of increased marijuana prosecutions. However, members of Congress – both Democrats and Republicans – are pushing back with the claim that the turnover not only violates states’ rights but it is also destructive and backward.
However, Ganjarunner is much more than an online platform. Baumgartner personally accepts calls for people looking for a custom cannabis regime to ease their suffering. Often, these calls are from cancer and MS patients, but she even receives calls from parents of children with AD(H)D. She works with a doctor to tailor the regimens accordingly. “It’s not about treating the disease, but treating the symptoms it causes,” Baumgartner said.

It was the year 2000 and I left Abott’s Habit. A friend of mine was moving out of town and all his friends needed weed, so that’s how I started my delivery service. It was just me with a pager, seven days a week. I couldn’t keep up with all the orders. My team grew to four girls and we split profits evenly. It became more like a private club, with a password to access. Eventually a woman I had a catering company with got upset and reported me to Santa Monica Police. They came in, raided us and took everything. I went to court and had to go through the legal system. Today I have an amazing lawyer who helped us file for a delivery license in California so we can transition to the recreational market.

I really do not understand why everyone is so butt hurt by the customer service. They always reply to my emails. They answer my support tickets. Does everyone on this review page expect that they will be perfect 100% of the time. No. No one on earth is. Give them a break. Can you see how many orders they are getting? Obviously they are busy. I have spent over $1000 on this website. The only hiccup they have made was with my December, 5 order. They sent me a email and are replacing my order and I might still receive my original order. That is fine with me. Its Christmas, quit being cry babies. Thank you Jay and everyone on the Ganja team for all that you do for me and everyone else. Keep up the good work.
Marion expressed surprise at the seemingly all-encompassing focus on artificial intelligence this year, given the steady march towards value-based healthcare-driven mandates. “Outside of one vendor, I’m not really seeing a whole lot of emphasis this year on value-based care; that’s disappointing,” Marion said. “I don’t know whether people don’t get it or not about value-based care, but the vendors are clearly more focused on AI right now.”
Artificial intelligence solutions—and certainly, the promotion of such solutions—were everywhere this year at the RSNA Conference, held this week at Chicago’s vast McCormick Place, where nearly 49,000 attendees attended clinical education sessions, viewed nearly 700 vendor exhibits. And AI and machine learning promotions, and discussions were everywhere.
With cannabis such a strong and helpful force in Baumgartner’s life, she wanted to give back and help others. That’s why she started Ganjarunner, a cannabis delivery service that now operates throughout the entire state of California. Ganja Runner is different than your average delivery service in a number of ways. First of all, their website looks like Amazon; you can search for and browse all sorts of products, add things to your cart and voila, your order will be delivered the next day. You can even pay with a credit card when your order arrives.

The company has an intriguing startup story. Fifteen years ago, one of the founders’ mother, Patti Green, was an emergency department social worker in Boise, Idaho, and suspected that some patients were opioid seekers. She set up a rudimentary collaborative care plan for providers to use to identify and help these patients. “It is easy for us now to talk about the opioid epidemic. Nobody was really talking about it 15 years ago, but she was seeing it on the ground,” says Chris Klomp, Collective’s CEO, “and she did something about it.”
One of our moms, Patti, is a social worker in the emergency department. She had been working on complex patient care coordination, particularly for patients who move across emergency departments. She had hypothesized that not only was this happening, but that a subset of those patients was probably opioid-seeking. Nobody talked about that 15 or 20 years ago, so she was pretty prescient on the ground.

First time buying weed at a recreational dispensary. Honestly, I was a little bit nervous as I approached the security guards. However, they were friendly... read more and had good vibes, helped me out and told me where to go with a smile. The building was professional, well-kept, clean, and had interesting facts about their weed and what they sell. The staff were also very professional and friendly. Don't cry about the price, either, people. I've worked in the fields, growing acres of weed in 100+ degree weather. It takes time and hard effort to grow quality plants. If you want quality shit, you pay for it. This place has it. read less
Klomp, who helped out with strategy while working in private equity at Bain Capital in Boston, quit in 2014 to join Collective Medical. And last year, Benjamin Zaniello, who was a chief medical information officer at Providence Health & Services in Washington, joined as chief medical officer. Zaniello helped implement Collective Medical at Providence. He was impressed. “They did this alone for many years,” he says. “It wasn’t just a bunch of people with a power point and a dream, or someone from Google with a personal story in healthcare who wants to fix the system.”
The company got its start in 2010. Baran, a Ph.D. student in engineering at the University of Wisconsin at the time, was thinking about how to build apps to make life easier for physicians. He went to a Mayo Clinic Innovation Conference and saw Lyle Berkowitz, M.D., of Northwestern Medicine speaking. “Lyle happened to be speaking there on that very topic, coming at it from the physician perspective,” Baran recalls. “I realized this is exactly the person I need to work with. A few weeks later I drove to Chicago, met with him, and the rest is history. We started this company and have been going ever since.”
As a young adult, I was in a very serious car accident. I broke a lot of bones — my second vertebrae, my neck, ribs, a compound fracture in my leg... It’s a miracle I’m not a quadriplegic. I was on a respirator and couldn’t breathe because there was fluid between my lung and ribcage. I couldn’t move because I had this thing holding up my head. A nurse around every few hours to help me cough so I wouldn’t get pneumonia. Eventually after getting off the respirator, one nurse came around and he mentioned cannabis. He said, “Did you know cannabis does the same type of thing to your lungs? It’s a bronchial dilator. The drug I’m pumping into your lungs is a bronchial dilator.” From that point on I realized I had a choice. I never took another pain pill. I just used cannabis for the next eleven months to recover. I always loved cannabis, but now I had an even more personal connection to the plant.

Other participants in the round include Bessemer Venture Partners, Maverick Ventures, Kaiser Permanente Ventures, Providence Ventures, Peterson Ventures, and Epic Ventures.
Anderson, who’s been practicing emergency medicine for 30 years, relies on Collective Medical for 40% of his patients. Recently, a 25-year-old woman showed up in the ER at Auburn Medical Center with abdominal pain. At check-in, an alert popped up next to her name. It was her fifth visit in a year. Her chart showed that she had also been to St. Francis Hospital, Highline Medical Center and Valley Medical Center—all within a 20-mile radius of Auburn. Her prescription drug history revealed that six doctors had ordered narcotics. Anderson contacted her primary care doctor, who was unaware of her ER visits, for a next day appointment, and started her on a treatment for opioid dependence.

The findings were then reviewed with the physician IT group, or what Sanders calls the PIT crew, to select what they refer to as the “Goldilocks” cohort. “This is a group of patients that had the combination of low cost, short length of stay, low readmissions and almost zero mortality rate. We then can publish the care path and then monitor adherence to that care path across our physicians,” Sanders says.

Mulvey’s standard class costs $29 and lasts 90 minutes, about 50 of which is spent stretching and posing. Before instruction begins, students are given time to mingle, offered hemp tea, and encouraged to smoke and share weed. A break during class allows more socializing and consumption. The communal periods are essential to her goal of helping cannabis lovers connect without judgment or stigma, Mulvey says. “My mission is to bring it to the community and remove the shame.”
When medical marijuana first became legal in Las Vegas and Greater Nevada, our marijuana dispensary wasn’t only one of the first to open its doors—it was also one of the first to make marijuana delivery available to eligible patients and customers. Now, with recreational marijuana sales in full swing across the state, marijuana delivery is one of the simplest and most convenient ways to buy your green.
