Shadow Health, Inc., a Gainesville, Florida-based early-stage company that develops digital interactive, clinical experiences for medical, nursing and allied health education programs, is to receive funding from the Florida Institute for the Commercialization of Public Research.
The company intends to use the funding to add new positions to educators, subject-matter experts, engineering and sales team in Gainesville to accelerate the launch of its product nationwide.
Led by Co-Founder and CEO David Massias, Shadow Health is developing a platform for medical, nursing and allied health students to engage in standardized simulated clinical experiences. It allows students to use their computers to orally and physically examine a patient. These clinical simulations provide opportunities to develop better bedside manner, improve physical examination procedures and take better patient histories.
The company licensed the technology from the University of Florida.
