Today, StartUp Health, its global army of Health Transformers and Vice President of the United States Joe Biden kicked off the 14th annual Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Summit sharing an urgent message with nearly 2,000 health leaders, CEOs, and entrepreneurs: the time is now to organize, break down silos, and adopt a “Health Transformer Mindset” to speed up progress in solving big health challenges like ending cancer, ensuring access to care, and improving the wellbeing of people worldwide. For the fourth consecutive year, StartUp Health’s Health Transformer Showcase kicked off the Medical Innovation Summit featuring 15 Health Transformers and a keynote from StartUp Health CEO and Co-founder, Steven Krein, where he shared a five-year update on their bold 25-year master plan. “In 2011, StartUp Health launched an ambitious movement to organize and support a global army of Health Transformers with the long-term goal of improving the health and wellbeing of everyone in the world,” said Steven. “Over the past five years, we’ve organized thousands of entrepreneurs, innovators and organizations committed to transforming health. In addition to rapidly growing this global force, StartUp Health and our partners are investing in and focusing on 10 Health Moonshots, each which will impact billions of people.” StartUp Health’s army of Health Transformers and network is organized around 10 Health Moonshot themes, all of which are connected and integral to one another. Additionally, StartUp Health will work to integrate the world’s numerous Moonshot initiatives: 1. Access to Care Moonshots: deliver quality care to everyone, regardless of location or income 2. Cost to Zero Moonshots: radically reduce the cost of care by a factor of a million 4. Cancer Moonshots: end cancer as we know it 6. Children's Health Moonshots: ensure every child has access to quality care, particularly in underserved areas 7. Nutrition Moonshots: ensure everyone has access to healthy food and water 8. Brain Health Moonshots: unlock the mysteries of the brain to improve health Following a dynamic Fireside Chat between Dr. Toby Cosgrove, CEO and President of Cleveland Clinic and Steven Krein about how to speed up progress and the pace of health innovation, Vice President Biden delivered an inspiring address calling on everyone to do their part in sharing research, data, and resources. “The Moonshot is all of us who understand the urgency and need to reimagine the cancer fight for the 21st century. It’s the spirit of discovery that defines this country. And it gives me every confidence that we are going to make enormous progress,” said Vice President Biden. “The Moonshot is fundamentally about two things,” continued Mr. Biden. “It’s about injecting the urgency of now into this fight. Not tomorrow, not in two hours, now! And it’s about changing the culture. Coming up with a new strategy for this fight. Not the strategy left over from 1971.” “We know now as we see everywhere that collaboration is the key to innovation,” he said to the audience of healthcare leaders. “The magic ingredient to solving the world’s biggest Health Moonshots is to organize the wisdom and energy of the world’s Health Transformers and bring them together as a united force sharing data and resources,” said Unity Stoakes, President and Co-founder of StartUp Health. “Every solution can make an impact, and as a collective army we can make 100 years of progress in 25.” The following entrepreneurs shared innovations and impact missions during the Health Transformer Showcase: The 2016 Medical Innovation Summit – “Innovating for Healthcare’s Transformation” – reflects the sense of urgency in an industry in the midst of historic change.

ROCHESTER, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sonex Health has announced the successful completion of the first ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel release procedure in the United States using the SX-One MicroKnife™. The SX-One MicroKnife™ is an ultra-low profile surgical device that allows physicians to perform carpal tunnel release surgery through a single micro-incision (4-5 mm) using ultrasound guidance. In addition, the device is designed to protect sensitive anatomy when the transverse carpal ligament (TCL) is cut during the procedure. Performed by Harvard and Mayo Clinic-trained plastic surgeon Craig Johnson, MD, at the Aurora Health Care Clinic in Sheboygan, WI, the Micro-invasive Carpal Tunnel Release (CTR) procedure is a new treatment option for patients who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. “In my experience, the SX-One MicroKnife™ addresses unmet needs in minimally invasive carpal tunnel release surgery,” said Dr. Johnson. “We’re always looking for new ways to help our patients and the SX-One MicroKnife™ offers an innovative way to treat carpal tunnel syndrome by promoting rapid recovery so patients can get back to their jobs and lives faster.” The SX-One MicroKnife™ enables Micro-invasive CTR through a micro-incision that’s up to five times smaller than the incision made during traditional CTR surgery1—an incision so small, it can be closed with a small adhesive bandage or strip. The SX-One MicroKnife™ features Meerkat Technology™ that performs two critical functions: it stores key safety and cutting elements inside the device to enable entry and exit through a micro-incision and once inside the wrist, the safety and cutting components are deployed to enhance the protection of nerves, blood vessels, tendons, and other sensitive anatomy during the procedure. The combination results in a low-trauma surgical environment that has been associated with faster pain relief and recovery in patients.2,3 “Our first-in-man surgery represents Sonex Health’s commitment to providing physicians with a minimally invasive solution for performing CTR,” said Dr. Darryl Barnes, CEO of Sonex Health and co-inventor of the SX-One MicroKnife™. “We look forward to helping physicians offer their carpal tunnel syndrome patients an option that helps people get out of pain and back to work and normal activities quickly.” For more information about Micro-invasive CTR with the SX-One MicroKnife™ please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.SonexHealth.com. The ultra-low profile SX-One MicroKnife™ was developed by physicians and leading ultrasound imaging experts at the Mayo Clinic. The patent pending surgical device is designed for physicians who perform CTR surgery under ultrasound guidance or with a traditional mini-open incision technique. Micro-invasive CTR with the SX-One MicroKnife™ is an outpatient procedure that can be performed in an office setting or a surgery center. Sonex Health is a medical device company created by physicians at Mayo Clinic with expertise in ultrasound imaging. The company is at the leading edge of minimally or micro-invasive percutaneous surgical procedures that can be performed cost-effectively in an office or surgery center setting. Sonex Health is focused on the safe, rapid treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition that affects 12 million Americans each year and is one of the leading causes of lost productivity in the economy. Sonex Health is located in the Minnesota BioBusiness Center in Rochester, MN. The company’s website is www.SonexHealth.com.
