The Pristine Story: The Fun Begins

In the last episode of the Pristine Story, I mentioned that we'd be travelling all over the country visiting with medical centers. I'm happy to report that the last six weeks have been fruitful. We're going into 2014 with a strong pipeline. We're targeting first revenue in January. We are going to begin rolling out Pristine EyeSight to hospitals and outpatient centers on a regular basis starting in just a few weeks.

We are finally graduating from an R&D lab to a real company. I would like to thank everyone who's helped us get this far so quickly - employees, their families, advisors, investors, and beta users.

In 2013, we devoted most of our hiring efforts towards engineering. In 2014, we're going to devote the majority of our hiring efforts towards client success. We are, and will be, hiring project managers, trainers, support staff, and salesmen on a regular basis for the foreseeable future. We are seeking individuals with experience deploying and selling health IT solutions in hospitals. We're also looking for a product marketing manager. If you or anyone you know might be interested, please apply.

We are gearing up for our Series A round of financing, though we have a bit of room left in our seed round. We have been fortunate to find a great investor base that's been supporting us. I can't thank them enough.

I'll be attending the annual JP Morgan Healthcare Investors Conference in San Fransisco in a few weeks. Buzz and I will be at the annual HIMSS Conference in Orlando February 23 - 27. We're going to have fun running gamified live demos in the exhibit hall.

I kicked off 2013 by committing to write three blog posts per week. I put my money where my mouth was: I bet $10 / week using I haven't missed a single week. Having accomplished my New Year's resolution and as Pristine grows, I'm probably going to slow down to one or two posts per week. I've established five new years' resolutions for 2014, two of which will be enforced through at $100 / month each. I highly encourage everyone to set New Year's resolutions and enforce them through I can say that blogging was among the top five decisions I made in my life; Pristine probably would've already failed had I not blogged.

2013 has been the craziest year of my life, and it's been hectic for all of Pristine's stakeholders. So I decided to recap the year into a blog post. I hope you enjoy it. It's one of my favorite blog posts of the year.
