PragmaClin Research Inc. is a digital technology company that operates in the healthcare sector, created by Bronwyn Bridges & Gord Genge. Gord was diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2019 and throughout his steps to diagnosis had identified several issues that needed to be solved in regard to patient assessment which include the longer wait-times and subjective patient assessment.
Bronwyn is a Ph.D. student at Memorial University and while conducting her research on Parkinson's, she met Gord and discussed potential solutions to the level of patient care. Shortly thereafter PragmaClin was incorporated in 2020 and since then, we have developed the PRIMS software which is an assessment tool that will assist clinicians in better treatment of their Parkinson's disease patients.
So far, we've raised over $300,000 for company funding from several pitch competitions and grants such as the GSEA (Global Student Entrepreneur Awards), Mel Woodward Cup, Bounce Health Embryo Grants Competition, etc. With this, we can ensure our product is able to help as many patients and clinicians as possible.
We've also been able to expand our wonderful team of students, graduates, and advisors. All of which play a key role in our company growth to ensure that patients and clinicians can have their current issues addressed in relation to patient assessment. We're very proud of how far we've come over the past two years and we're excited to continue our mission of finding new solutions to issues in patient care.
