A Word from the Founder

I founded OpenI (pronounced “Open Eye”) as an open-source project to develop data visualization and analytics tools. Over time, after working on a few projects with UCSF (University of California at San Francisco), we quickly realized that digital health was our true calling, and we fully dove in. 

Recently, we helped launch ImPact, a Salesforce app that speeds up workflows to commercialize inventions made within UCSF, increase their revenue ($40M+ annual), and bring in research sponsorship funds ($1B+/year). Before that, we helped launch a referrals automation product at UCSF Center for Digital Health Innovation. We are continuing to work with UCSF Innovation Ventures on the next ImPact release, and also managing a program for UCSF academic research to help scale research computing. We also recently set up a call center for Dementia Care Aware program using Salesforce Service Cloud.

We focus on patient engagement and care coordination (stressing interoperability). We have a full team of mobile and web backend software developers which we combine with strong UX design and agile product management. Adding that to the best of cloud, open source, and digital health tools, we provide a much faster turnaround in launching new apps. We are also a Salesforce Health Cloud partner which enables us to be quite effective in implementing Patient CRM solutions.

If you have projects aiming to improve patients’ and care providers’ experiences, please reach out. We will have a lot of fun working together.
