Founder Feature: Ashley Barrow of RE-Assist

Meet Ashley Barrow.

Founder and CEO of RE-Assist.


"Cincinnati is where I was born and raised. This city has allowed my family and me to thrive and now innovate in ways I would never have imagined."




RE-Assist is designed to become the ultimate referral assistance management app for patients in transitions of care, case management, and vendors to offer educated choices to improve quality of life.

 

Q: What is a lesson you've learned that has shaped your work?

A: I have worked in transitional care planning for over 15 years with a hand in transitioning 1000's of patients from acute to post-acute care. I thought I was an expert but it was not until I had a family member become ill that I truly learned the difference between providing care to intentionally assist with improving quality of life. Through that experience, I gathered true patient insight which birthed the heart of our platform.


Q: How did a grant from Main Street Ventures impact you and your business?

A: The Main Street Ventures Grant will get us to the foundation of our user interface experience. This will help to facilitate our concept and get us to more institutional investments.


Q: What does a typical day in your life look like?

A: A typical day in my life is filled with activities geared at making my business a success. This includes everything from emails to phone calls; networking to meetings; building a team to establishing a pilot facilitator, and working with mentors to find capital.



Q: What makes Cincinnati a great place to start a business?

A: Cincinnati is where I was born and raised. This city has allowed my family and me to thrive and now innovate in ways I would never have imagined. In addition, the city landscape is beautiful and with evolving vibrant culture.


Q: What's next for RE-Assist?

A: We are working very hard to develop our MVP and pilot our platform to local hospitals. We will then begin on the next round of funding after proof of concept.
