Empower Hope: Healthcare Delivered on Your Terms

[Empower Hope, Finly Zachariah, Chief Medical Officer]

Did you know that poor communication across a patient’s end-of-life care plan costs the healthcare system over $100 billion annually? Unwanted care during these trying times creates substantial challenges for both patients and providers. But what if we had a better way to make sure that all palliative care needs could be communicated clearly and easily among caregivers?

Meet Empower Hope, a groundbreaking SaaS company set to revolutionize the way patients handle end-of-life care.

Empower Hope supports patients by making sure that their healthcare preferences are known, discussed, and transformed into actionable care that results in goal-concordant treatment and cost reduction. The beta-ready platform is equipped with a robust portfolio of microservices and products that help clinicians manage comprehensive care plans for every patient.

On the buyer’s side, the company’s platform caters to the needs of health systems, such as at-risk health systems, US public health systems, and private insurers. By collecting and analyzing data, Empower Hope creates actionable insights within healthcare settings that optimize workflows for clinicians and enhance patient outcomes.

Moving forward, Empower Hope will integrate an exclusive AI mortality model and additional enhancements to further extend the platform’s capabilities. To support this growth, Empower Hope seeks $1 million in additional funding. This investment will enable the company to provide enterprise sales mentoring, establish key connections with state, local, and payor entities, and create a collaborative development space.

By doing so, Empower Hope aims to change the way clinicians manage end-of-life care management and create a system in which the patient’s voice comes first.

ZenCentiv: Your Sales Compensation Guru

[ZenCentiv, Alexander Gaputin, Co-Founder & CTO]

In the realm of corporate expenditures, variable compensation stands as the second largest cost after total payroll. However, many companies struggle with the manual effort required to manage complex benefits plans, which leads to administrative difficulties and costly errors. To exacerbate matters, existing tools for compensation management are notorious for challenging user experiences. That’s where ZenCentiv steps in.

ZenCentiv is a cutting-edge SaaS-based solution that brings unprecedented ease and efficiency to sales compensation management. With its intuitive menu-driven interface, ZenCentiv helps sales teams achieve productivity like never before. To do this, it:

  • Automates processes and reduces costly errors associated with manual workflows
  • Motivates teams and keeps employees aligned with company goals, quotas, and milestones
  • Optimizes systems by gaining insight into performance trends that drive results

Across these three goals, ZenCentiv offers a series of user-centric administration processes that help businesses manage compensation plans with ease. Upon purchase of a license, ZenCentiv provides a proprietary, menu-driven calculation engine that stands out as the most agile solution on the market for compensation management. Unlike comparable solutions, ZenCentiv offers lightning-fast deployment in a matter of hours – not days or months.

Plus, ZenCentiv can be integrated with various data sources to ensure seamless connectivity with existing systems. This provides simple, out-of-the-box reporting and customizable dashboards that provide real-time visibility into sales performance.

ZenCentiv is actively recruiting clients and will soon seek $1 million in funding to continue to drive innovation and shape the future of sales compensation management.
