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.”
