(Miami, FL– December 3, 2020) – HealthSnap, a Remote Patient Monitoring company for virtual chronic condition management, to create 65 jobs and invest more than $1.5 million over the next three years as part of a major expansion announcement in Miami.
Founded in 2015, HealthSnap is an example of a successful start-up in Miami-Dade County that has grown out of the community’s existing life sciences ecosystem. The company was launched by five University of Miami alumni—one of whom is CEO, Samson Magid — who together have grown the business at the CIC, which houses the largest concentration of life science companies in Miami-Dade County. The company will initially expand at its current location in the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) Miami. In collaboration with the Miami-Dade Beacon Council and Enterprise Florida, HealthSnap was awarded the State of Florida’s Qualified Target Industry tax refund for 65 new hires.
“The Miami-Dade Beacon Council and Enterprise Florida were extremely helpful in identifying HealthSnap as a candidate for the QTI initiative and providing guidance throughout the approval process,” said Samson Magid, CEO, HealthSnap. “We are very appreciative of their ongoing efforts to support HealthSnap’s growth and innovation in Miami, and we are excited to continue this partnership going forward.”
“This is an all-around success story that showcases a home-grown entrepreneur along with collaboration with local organizations,” said Michael A. Finney, President, and CEO of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council. “With projects like these, Miami-Dade County continues to lead the healthcare economy in the Southeast United States, serving more than 2.75 million residents across nearly two dozen industry subsectors. With a diverse population of all ages and ethnicities, Miami-Dade County is on the cutting edge of patient care, healthcare delivery, and healthcare innovation in the United States.”
HealthSnap’s Remote Patient Monitoring programs enable healthcare organizations to extend their patient care to the home in order to manage chronic conditions proactively. Since its commercial launch in 2020, HealthSnap has successfully deployed its Remote Patient Monitoring program with over 30 physician groups, 5 enterprise health systems, and nearly 4,000 patients in its phase 1 roll-out this year.
“This is a great Florida story and proves that we are fast becoming the best place for innovators to make their mark,” said Florida Secretary of Commerce Jamal Sowell, also Enterprise Florida’s President & CEO. “HealthSnap is doing great work and we are glad they have chosen Florida to further expand their mission.”
“HealthSnap’s mission is to empower people with their health data anytime, anywhere, so that they can become active participants in their own health. Our goal is to impact millions of lives through our virtual chronic disease management programs and thereby fundamentally shift the paradigm of healthcare to one that is more proactive, remote, and continuous,” said Samson Magid, CEO, HealthSnap. “As we continue to grow and carry out our mission, we are proud to be committed to hiring from the talent pool in HealthSnap’s home city of Miami. Over the next three years, we will be carrying out our expansion initiative with new hires in our operations, technology, and sales teams.”
In the wake of the COVID-19 global health crisis, HealthSnap’s Remote Patient Monitoring solution is a critical example of how healthcare organizations are adopting technology to continue to deliver exceptional care to vulnerable chronic disease patients around the country. The company is actively hiring local Miami-Dade County talent and expects to begin its expansion investment and hiring immediately.
