Technology is all around us today, making possible things we never even imagined. Here's two: an app that is the Uber of medical care, and Virtual Reality that  makes it possible to train employees to work in a chemical plants or recreate the battle of Okinawa. Perhaps an equally surprising fact about these innovations is that they are being created here in south Louisiana.

Vashon Craft is Director of Community Relations at a company called Ready Responders, a New Orleans-based startup that expanded into the Baton Rouge market in 2019, bringing with it its unique service of on-demand health care to your door – or wherever you are. 

Ready Responders dispatches medics on-demand to provide non-emergency medical care—then offers follow up care with nurses and physicians assistants. It’s all done via a smart phone app using software the company developed.  

Cody Louviere is the founder of King Crow Studios, a local software development firm that specializes in virtual reality and video game development. Virtual Reality isn’t just a gimmick; it’s a tool that King Crow is using to create training experiences and platforms for customers that include LED FastStart, ExxonMobil, The Department of Defense, and The Alliance Safety Council.
