The 2016 MedTech Boston 40 Under 40 Healthcare Innovators

Jacob Sattelmair, PhD
Co-Founder & CEO at Wellframe
Jacob Sattelmair, PhDJacob Sattelmair was a PhD candidate when he realized that technology could be used to help people make more informed healthcare decisions. Sattelmair, who trained as an epidemiologist and researched chronic disease and risk prevention, wanted to find a way to use technology to support patients outside of formal care settings. He’s doing just that as CEO and President of Wellframe.

Wellframe uses a mobile app to connect users to a care management dashboard. From there they are able to directly communicate with a clinical team that helps develop personalized care plans that can then be sent to a phone or tablet. The dashboard supplies care managers with real time information on their patients, which helps caregivers intervene earlier in the care process and thereby reduce the cost of care.

Sattelmair credits Wellframe’s success to the diverse team behind it. “We brought together very diverse perspectives and experiences to forge our approach, which is now enabling a growing number of leading health plans and care delivery organizations to transform their approach,” he says. “I get to work alongside a diverse, talented, passionate team committed to improving the lives of patients and clinicians. We are making discernible progress towards realizing our vision on a daily basis, and my personal pace of learning has never been higher.”

Wellframe is committed to continually learning, improving their methods, and providing the best care possible. Sattelmair is excited to expand Wellframe’s footprint by partnering with more organizations to help make a difference in the lives of patients in the next few years.
