In February 2023, LFT Software created it’s new subsidiary LFT Health. LFT Software, a “company of digital content creators, who help others across the globe with software and application development”, wanted to create a subsidiary in LFT Health to focus on the health care market needs of its customers.
LFT Health focuses on improved health
Adam Scroggin, CEO of LFT Software and serial entrepreneur, has worked in the health care sector in building regulated websites for patient portals, mobile health apps, in the medical device field, and Apple Health integration. Even with his expertise in the field, Scroggin wanted to have a medical expert on board and Jaime Bristow was the perfect fit. Bristow says “I have always loved solving problems, whether in the lab, or in my clinic. When I met Adam Scroggin we discussed our mutual passion for mental health, I had several problems I wanted to solve for my community and patients. This discussion led to the development of several projects currently underway. I am grateful for this opportunity to lead and create solutions for our Indiana community and the world”.
“Jaime’s background in psychiatry, nursing, research and development and biotech startups makes her the perfect fit for leading our new company. With Jaime having over 15 years of experience working in mental health, I knew I found the right person. You used to have to hide if you had mental health issues, but not anymore. During COVID, it became more important to talk about mental health and acceptable”, Scroggin says. Scroggin has given several talks on the neuroscience of mental health with the intent of helping others.
Bristow provides LFT Health with a competitive advantage
Bristow plans on using her background in research and development, startups as well as healthcare to provide LFT Health with several advantages over other tech ventures.
“Nurses are among the most trusted professionals in the world. That’s not just lip service. We are among the most ethical and tenacious professions in the world. Remember COVID? We, as nurses did not abandon our community, we continued to fight, advocate, and bring all that we had. I bring that with me in whatever venture I am a part of, big or small.” says Bristow.
