In the last post, we looked at Beam, GYANT, and Nutrimedy.  Here are ten more great examples of companies paving the way in tele-medicine.

ONE:  Hale Health connects clinical teams and their patients.  They are working on a remote healthcare platform to ensure everyone can easily access the medical help they need.  Its capabilities include complex disease management.  Through a suite of tools that are integrated with existing EMRs, Hale provides a continuous connection between doctors and their patients who are outside the brick-and-mortar facility.  The idea is to be able to provide personalized care anytime, anywhere.  Hale organizes clinical information into charts that can be easily accessed. It does this by collecting information based on reported symptoms to ensure medical professionals are always fully informed.  Patients can submit requests; and remotely review / make payments through the app.

TWO:  In Singapore, more than a million people have used the tele-health app “MaNaDr” for virtual visits.  20% of physicians in the small nation-State offer services via this app.  It also offers patients an easy way to routinely follow up with their doctor.  In an effort to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, people with symptoms are remotely pre-screened by physicians.

THREE:  Blue Ocean Robotics has designed “UVD” robots, which use ultraviolet light to autonomously kill bacteria and viruses. Robots aren’t susceptible to the virus, so–during a pandemic–they can be deployed to perform many tasks–from sterilizing to delivering food and medicine.  The idea is to reduce the amount of human-to-human contact.

FOUR:  During the current pandemic, it’s not only the clinical operations of healthcare systems that are being taxed; it’s also the administrative departments being overloaded as they clamor to deal with the surge of patients.  A blockchain platform offered by Ant Financial helps speed up claims processing and reduces the amount of face-to-face interaction between patients and hospital staff.

FIVE:  Tele-health company MediOrbis offers a system in which people can contact a tele-medicine center and describe their symptoms to a doctor who can then determine whether they need testing; and do so without exposing anyone else.

SIX:  Zipnosis offers a multi-modal, virtual care platform for treating patients for common health conditions–including triage functionality.  This involves full EMR and portal integration.  It is designed to launch and scale virtual care–providing access to most medicines.  It offers a variety of customized modalities to ensure flexibility for both physicians and patients.

SEVEN:  SnapMD provides technology to fully virtualize clinics.  It does this by operating a cloud-based patient-to-provider tele-medicine platform which connects families with pediatric physicians.  Its platform also enables healthcare providers to connect with patients.  In addition, it facilitates physician-to-physician consultations by streamlining what is normally an inefficient process.  SnapMD’s VCM (Virtual Care Management) platform includes features empowering medical professionals to practice whatever medical procedures are suitable for virtual care.  The easy-to-use interface enables an efficient, effective virtual interaction.

EIGHT:  A company called Heal is using technology to bring pediatricians and other doctors to families on-demand to best accommodate everyone’s schedule.  By efficiently bringing healthcare to tens of thousands of households, as needed, Heal has helped save $40 million in healthcare costs.  The company’s proprietary technology ends up reducing healthcare operating costs by 65%.

NINE:  Jvion is a healthcare company that specializes in analytics.  It is using AI to study the data of 30 million patients to identify people and communities at highest risk for CoViD-19.  The “inference engine” is doing this using a highly-complex model based on more than 5,000 variables–including not just medical history but lifestyle and socio-economic factors.  Working with hospitals and health centers, Jvion’s platform creates lists of people who should be contacted preemptively to warn them about heightened vulnerability.  Their strategy is about better inform health providers PROACTIVELY.

TEN:  PsyAlive connects psychologists and patients around the world in their native language through video-conferencing.  It also matches the psychologist that best suits each patient’s needs, and preferences using an algorithm.
