“Event notification systems (ENS) and care coordination applications have historically struggled to provide actionable information to providers at the point-of-care,” says Noah Knauf, partner at Kleiner Perkins. “Collective Medical is the first technology we’ve seen that allows the providers and payers in a local healthcare system to efficiently collaborate, delivering significantly better outcomes through risk analytics, real-time notifications, and shared care planning tools. Supporting this team is a rare opportunity to be a part of something that is meaningfully changing the way care is delivered in this country.”
“Proposition 64 would allow the state to impose a 15% excise tax on the retail sale of marijuana. Also, the state would be able to levy a cultivation tax on growers of $9.25 per ounce for flowers and $2.75 per ounce for leaves. The ballot measure also would let cities and counties to impose their own taxes to cover costs of services, including enforcement.” (Patrick McGreevy, Los Angeles Times)
Baumgartner’s relationship with cannabis started in her teens, around the same time she was diagnosed with anxiety. Refusing to take pills to deal with her nerves, she took on a move natural approach that included surfing and smoking weed. “My Italian-Catholic mother was horrified,” Baumgartner joked, but clearly her system worked. Now, at age 49, she’s staying ahead of her anxiety in a similar way, with smoking, surfing, meditation and eating right, she’s able to live a successful and productive life.
Utah-based Collective Medical, which has been bootstrapped for eight years, has quietly developed the nation’s largest network for real-time care collaboration. Collective Medical’s technology addresses the full continuum of care in support of many of the country’s most vulnerable individuals—patients with complex needs that are not met at any single point of care. By unifying providers and payers through real-time information alerts, patient context, and collaborative care planning, Collective Medical empowers care teams to identify patients with complex needs and help them get the care they need, when they need it, from those best positioned to deliver it. Collective Medical’s approach has been proven to reduce avoidable emergency department (ED) visits and hospital readmissions, ease transitions of care, and eliminate unnecessary risk and friction from care delivery.
“We had a guillotine over our head,” says Stephen Anderson, an emergency medicine doctor at MultiCare Auburn Medical Center, which operates eight hospitals in and around Tacoma and Spokane, Washington. Hospitals pleaded for their own solution. “[We said] instead of blocking access, let us coordinate care of high utilizers.” The governor gave them three months.

Feeling achy? Hit the massage table. At E-motion Sports Massage in Everett, clients can loosen up with a cannabis-infused ointment that many say boosts the impact of the treatment. Massage therapists use a cream infused with cannabinoids, compounds derived from the cannabis plant. They don’t cause a high, but they do have powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-killing effects, says E-motion owner Mercedes Diaz. And because the cream reduces pain, she says, therapists can work muscles more intensively — and effectively. “It is really great for muscle and joint pain, arthritis, sprains, strains,” Diaz says. “With cannabis, we can get in there and do so much more.” The ointment comes in different concentrations, so therapists can choose the right one for each patient’s needs. E-motion offers cannabis cream as a $25 upgrade to any of its regular massage services, which run $100 to $120.
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.
You can either throw a tremendous number of expensive, scarce bodies at the problem, which isn’t scalable, or you can use technology. I’m not talking about mere notifications that an encounter has occurred, which we do, but a deeper level of collaboration. A mental health provider in the emergency department creates a crisis plan for the patient at 3:00 in the morning that involves a primary care provider who is affiliated with a multi-specialty clinic that is not connected to the health system and a Medicaid managed care manager. How do you help those individuals get on the same page and interact with the patient in sequence so that we’re not wasting resources or missing opportunities to help the patient navigate across the continuum, efficiently using the existing technology infrastructure of each organization? That’s the set of problems that we’re focused on.

The guys didn’t want to go work for “the man.” Patti, who is a pretty intimidating and awesome lady, told them to “build a computer program” for what she was doing in a circulated Word document and they did. They won a couple of business plan competitions and decide to take it out to the world. It took a lot of years and a lot of bootstrapping, but off we went.
Since its founding eight years ago, Collective Medical (not to be confused with employee benefits company Collective Health) has produced a software platform comprised of two main products. EDIE, designed for emergency departments, connects emergency teams across multiple facilities to identify high-risk, complex needs patients and immediately access care history upon admittance. The PreManage product is intended for a wider population of patients, and is marketed to health plans and providers. It also identifies and tracks high-risk patients upon admittance and discharge from inpatient or emergency care, while allowing teams to easily communicate and coordinate throughout a patient’s care.

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Collective Medical, delivering the nation’s largest network for care collaboration, has secured $47.5 million in Series A funding. The investment, led by Kleiner Perkins, will be used to expand and advance the company’s care team collaboration network accelerating efforts to drive better patient outcomes nationwide.
The rehabilitation of neck injuries occurs in three phases. During the first phase, called the acute phase, physiatrists treat pain the inflammation. After they make a specific diagnosis and develop a treatment plan, physiatrists may offer treatment options like ultrasound, electrical stimulation, mobilization, medication, ice and even specialized injections.
“Every hospital has been struggling with this for decades, managing clinical variation,” he says, noting that traditional methods of addressing clinical variation management have been inefficient, as developing care pathways, which involves identifying best practices for high-cost procedures, often takes up to six months or even years to develop and implement. “By the time you finish, it’s out of date,” Sanders says. “There wasn’t a good way of doing this, other than picking your spots periodically, doing analysis and trying to make sense of the data.”

Connoisseurs of both cannabis and fine food can indulge both passions with a four-course supper-club experience from Mass Cannabis Chefs. Customers can peruse menus a few weeks ahead and buy tickets online — prices range from $100 to $150 per person — but they don’t learn the address of the event until the day before. The food is far from traditional stoner fare: Past menus have featured stuffed sea scallops, filet mignon, and cherry clafoutis with fresh whipped cream. And there are occasional vegetarian nights. The cannabis infusion in each course is customized to the individual’s preference.
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.

The state of California now allows for adults over the age of 21 to possess up to 1 oz of marijuana for personal consumption. Each household (not person) may contain up to 6 plants. However, the rules of growing are likely to differ between cities. As a general rule, plants are to be grown indoors, and they should not be visible to others outside your household. Smoking in public is prohibited under the ballot measure of Prop 64 unless allowed by a local ordinance – in other words, don’t smoke it just anywhere, fines may occur.
