About the company
Founded by a long time practicing doctor, this company aims to improve and develop the medical industry through innovative IT technology solutions. Because of the power of the internet, the access to medical information is easier but the actual medical expertise of doctors and practitioners are much more complicated and difficult to share and acquire. This company aims to solve these mainly through AI technology and image processing.The founder believes that with developments like these, millions of lives will be saved through efficiency and effectiveness.

Their main innovation is a diagnostic system using image recognition technology. The traditional way of diagnosing if a patient has an influenza is via manual cotton swab tests that only has 62% accuracy. With the use of AI and image recognition technology, they can easily diagnose influenza using the photos of the patient’s throats. This procedure gives out a 99% accuracy rate which proves that it is more effective compared to traditional swab tests. Accurate and fast diagnostics leads to a better medical treatment and thus saving time and multiple lives.
