INTAKE.ME TEAM FINISHES FIRST IN STANFORD UNIVERSITY TECH ENTREPRENEURSHIP MOOC

Intake.Me Finishes Top in the Course with over 600 teams from Around the World;


[LOS ANGELES, CA] — [September 2013] – Intake.Me announced today that it finished in first place in the Stanford University Online Technology Entrepreneurship 2013 summer course for its team’s project, Intake.Me – Streamline Your Doctor Visits, that allows patients to manage their intake forms and personal heathcare records from their smartphone, and automates the intake process for doctor offices. The Stanford University massive open online course (MOOC) attracts entrepreneurs from all around the globe with projects focusing on any industry or idea. The technology entrepreneurship course is led by Professor Chuck Eesley, an Assistant Professor at Stanford University in the Department of Management Science and Engineering (MS&E).

“The course was very challenging but our team was very focused and worked very well together,” said Darla Brown, Intake.Me’s founder who first thought of Intake.Me after going through cancer treatment in 2010 when she realized patients needed a better way to manage their personal healthcare records when visiting multiple doctors. “Having team members in different time zones really worked to our advantage. Because of the time difference, we were essentially working around the clock most weekends and passing the baton to each other.”

“I actually met my co-founders through the Stanford University course,“ said Ms. Brown.  “Emily Lu is a medical student in Chicago and Oli Morgan is a caretaker in the UK. They each bring their personal experiences with the healthcare system that has made our management team uniquely qualified to tackle this problem.”
