After being named 1st Team All PAC-10 Kicker in 1999 and playing in the Rose Bowl with the Stanford Cardinal the following year – all while earning his BA and MA – Mike Biselli hung up his cleats and brought his unwavering determination and collaborative spirit to the field of healthcare.
During his tenure with several industry-leading medical device companies, Mike quickly recognized the potential of health technology to significantly improve medical outcomes and decrease waste, and decided to join the growing movement of entrepreneurs, technologists, and clinicians who were reimagining healthcare through health-tech innovation.
MedPassage, a health-tech platform serving the ambulatory surgery center market, represented his first attempt at using technology to address the industry’s pervasive inefficiencies. After a private equity group acquired MedPassage, Mike began collaborating with a wide range of individuals and organizations dedicated to accelerating the current transformation of the healthcare industry.
As a Board Member of Medical Group Management Association, Prime Health, Colorado Bioscience Association, and several other organizations, Mike experienced firsthand the tremendous power a determined community of clinicians, executives, technologists, entrepreneurs, academics, and investors could wield when they work together.
Realizing just how much more could be accomplished if that power were harnessed, Mike developed the industry integrator concept, a new feature of the innovation economy that allows the healthcare industry to be integrated at the point of innovation by physically housing an entire ecosystem in a single location.
In partnership with governmental, non-profit, and commercial organizations, Mike and his team built Catalyst, a 180,000 square foot, first-of-its-kind industry integrator, in Denver’s River North District (RiNo) that houses 60+ health-tech startups, academic institutions, healthcare systems, and Fortune 100s alike in the race to fix healthcare. Catalyst opened its doors in July, 2018.
While Mike continues to be a Catalyst Partner/Owner, his efforts are now focused on his role as Chief Community Officer at BurstIQ.
BurstIQ is a HIPAA and GDPR compliant platform creating health profiles for people, places and things, and empowers the interactions between them. The blockchain platform enables health applications and services to incorporate complex data ownership, consent, and monetization … at scale.
The BurstIQ team is creating a deeply connected community of health data anchors and innovators to ignite an international revolution by properly securing, controlling, consenting and monetizing health data.
“We’re not going to re-imagine healthcare just through the largest and most powerful organizations that have dominated the space for the past fifty years. And, it won’t happen with startups alone. We have to do it together. If you are passionate about reimagining healthcare, you have a seat at our table!” -TEDx RiNo
