KALAMAZOO—C2Dx Inc., a medical device company, announced a partnership with another Michigan startup, Farmington Hills-based Quintree.
Quintree claims to be the first telemedicine platform that integrates with existing diagnostic equipment. It was created by Dr. Adam Folbe, a practicing ear, nose, and throat doctor, and Sandy Kronenberg, an IT expert and entrepreneur, with the mission to drive higher efficiencies and standards-of-care for patients through a seamless connection between medical providers and medical specialists.
Built in the field, Quintree is designed to be compatible with physicians’ and other healthcare providers’ workflow. As a specialist, Folbe experiences firsthand how much he’s running from hospital to hospital to scope and assess patients and wanted something more sustainable. His idea to create a software platform where he could remotely see through a diagnostic scope in real-time has evolved to a technology with broad application across all medical specialties, particularly when using a scope or intraoperative camera for diagnosis and to guide medical procedures.
Quintree also helps with emergency room patient consultation for on-call physicians. The emergency department and specialist can connect with a touch of their phone and immediately be in a HIPAA compliant, virtual consultation. This rapidly informs the on-call specialist on the best next step in the treatment plan. Virtual consult images and a written overread report are timestamped for medical documentation and billing purposes.
C2Dx is the exclusive provider of Quintree, ready to get medical professionals set up on the platform. It’s the third product offering for C2Dx since its establishment in 2019.
