Health X is a biotechnology company that specializes in the creation of innovative healthcare solutions. Health X was inspired by the fight against the Coronavirus. The outbreak has shown how increasingly vulnerable patient care has become. Until a majority of the U.S. population becomes vaccinated, hospital conditions will continue to be worn thin. COVID-19 patients have been prioritized at this time, which has created an excessive backlog of essential care that will cause irreversible ramifications, leaving communities, primarily of color, without the appropriate care. As a result, many patients have not been able to access care. Our solution to bridging this healthcare gap as a company has been to provide Health X, a healthcare data technology service designed to create a consolidated network of healthcare professionals, as well as wellness tools to members around the world. Our current venture includes a cloud-based healthcare management software that enables greater access to medical treatment, advice, and professionals.
We aim to create cutting-edge biotechnology designed to bridge the gap between healthcare and at-risk communities around the globe. We hope to encourage wellness education & patient care as an essential practice for both physicians and their patients. Health X is a subscription-based service offered to healthcare providers to not only connect them with patients via an online interface, but also organize appointments, care plans, billing, and more. In addition, Health X is designed to be compatible with fitness wearables and other medical accessories to deliver precise health statistics in real-time.
In this day and age, traditional learning styles are being rendered ineffective. As students become immersed in a more digital and visual world, standard teaching styles of only auditory and written instruction don't effectively engage the majority of students. Research has shown that using visual aids in lessons raise learning with various degrees of success, humans process visuals 60,000 times faster than text, and 60 percent of individual learn visually. Yet, K12 continues to leverage auditory learning styles, especially in reading and writing. Neglect of visual learning styles in education is in part a direct result of school systems in the United States that have failed to engage students who don’t enjoy learning and practicing writing. When fewer students enjoy writing, diversity in storytelling, creative writing, and media all suffer.
AnimaCation's goal is to solve this lack of interest in writing by using technology to add creative and engaging aspects into every student’s learning. AnimaCation, a mix of animation and education, combines visual learning and creativity with education. The company's mission is to equip and develop students into confident, skilled writers within our public schools, especially in traditionally under-resourced areas and ultimately increase the representation of people of color as well-known authors, film directors, script writers, and broadcasters in the United States.
TradeSmart is an education technology solution for stock investors. The app will provide investors with key insights on business financials, ratios, reports, and news and also teach new traders how to use these resources to analyze a stock and make educated trading decisions. The rise of Robinhood and other online stock brokers has been accompanied by a large increase in the number of people trading stocks in the US and abroad. In March of this year after the crash of the stock market as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic I became one of these new investors in the stock market. Like many others I began my trading journey by watching youtube videos and keeping up with financial news. I used apps like bloomberg and yahoo and email subscriptions to business newsletters like the Morning Brew. Since the start of my trading journey my methods have not evolved much. I have found one important new resource, Mergent online. It is an online business and financial information database that Howard Students are enabled to access through our School of Business Library.
The database centralized my research. Instead of going to different news apps for updates about a particular stock and visiting each stock's individual website to find reports, I could find all of the information I needed on one database. TradeSmart will allow users to create a watchlist of their favorite stocks, for which they will be provided all of the ratios, reports, and news updates needed to make educated decisions. This tackles another problem that a lot of new traders face. Companies release reports and information on their own time and often give investors little notice about when important information will be released. Tradesmart will notify traders about new stock news and reports so that they will never miss out on important information.
A big differentiator between TradeSmart and its competitors is the calculator of key financial ratios in the areas of leverage ratios, profitability ratios, growth ratios, and assets management ratios. We will provide these ratios for our users and also teach them the implications of these calculations by comparing them to financial history/projections, industry averages, and competitors.
