Local Economy, LLC

Located in Portland, Maine

“We provide accounting and payroll services. Our clients are bakers, artists, pet sitters, acupuncturists, manufacturers, fishermen, consultants, and more. They are brave people in the Portland area who decided to risk their livelihood to pursue a dream. Somewhere along the way they discovered that they needed some assistance in tax preparation, paying their employees, or just keeping track of their business transactions. We're here to help them do just that. Our clients are also our neighbors, our friends, and our livelihood. We never forget that.”

Brian Harris, one of the company’s co-founders, reports that roughly 30 percent of people who suffer a stroke still aren’t better by the time their insurance benefits run out. That’s where technology comes in. MedRhythms utilizes a digital platform to deliver the power of neurologic music therapy at a lower cost and without the need of an actual therapist.

Launched in 2014 by two extraordinary guys, the company has offices in Portland Maine and Boston. We welcome their thinking and kind hearts to help us deliver on our mission. 

Millions of people suffer serious movement afflictions each year brought on by health issues or accidents. MedRhythms exists to bring them back by helping patients access the highest quality of care at the intersection of music, technology, and neuroscience.
