This week’s episode of “WisBusiness: The Podcast” is with AkkeNeel Talsma, CEO and founder of Melius Outcomes.

This Milwaukee-based startup has a quality improvement software platform for hospitals and other care facilities. It was built with technology developed at the University of Michigan.

The company has raised $150,000 to date, according to an info sheet from the Wisconsin Technology Council. Talsma is currently seeking $3 million in capital financing, to support further growth efforts. As of now, she has a “functional prototype” of the software, which is ready for implementation.

“We did a pilot study with 25 hospitals and had incredible outcomes,” she said. “We’re able to demonstrate good outcomes in terms of mortality, sepsis, as well as satisfaction by the users.”  Listen to the podcast here.
