Ohio Ag Connection - 03/15/2021

LifeBio, a leading agetech company that captures life stories for better health and based in Marysville, Ohio,, has been selected to participate in the Innovator's Pitch Challenge (IPC) at the Longevity, Health & Innovation conference to be held virtually on March 18-19.

LifeBio will highlight two recent innovations during the pitch.

- MyHello, is a tech-powered, HIPAA-compliant, scalable live phone intervention to address loneliness and to increase social engagement, resulting in higher patient satisfaction.

- LifeBio Memory is a groundbreaking life story app for memory care, under development currently with a MVP created, which incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) with natural language processing to improve engagement and person-centered care for people living with Alzheimer's or other related dementias.

The two-day Innovator's Pitch Challenge includes a 4-minute pitch followed by live Q&A with Mary Furlong & Associates and Life Science Nation leading the event to advance technology in longevity and aging and to bring entrepreneurs and interested investors together.

"Loneliness and social isolation result in higher levels of depression, poorer cardiovascular health, poorer diabetes health and higher rates of Alzheimer's Disease," said Beth Sanders, CEO and founder of LifeBio, "It makes sense that LifeBio's solutions are focused on both loneliness and dementia as urgent and important agetech issues."

Loneliness and social isolation account for $6.7 billion in additional Medicare spending annually according to a 2017 report by AARP. Medicare also spends $53 billion on depression and $155 billion on Alzheimer's care each year.
