About our project

The problem we solve: Administrative tasks have become a burden on hospitals and providers have less time to actually understand patients' symptoms and problems. Patients need quick answers; 50% are already using voice assistants like Siri, Google, Alexa & Google Home and 69% are still calling hospitals. As patient interaction has evolved into AI based voice devices, hospitals are yet to adapt and benefit from these.

About our solution: As patients are calling & using their voice to reach out to hospitals, we use patients inputs and machine learning to automate tasks for hospitals. While they interact, our solution helps detect patients' state of mind using tone, pitch, words, etc. Here are our three key solutions: 1. Intelligent Virtual Assistant (IVA): Integration with any EMR and automated scheduling and patient triaging with our IVA. 2. Patient engagement: Emotion and sentiment detection, follow-ups and reminders customized for each patient. 3. Direct Payment: integration with back office to allow patients to understand procedure costs and make easy payments.

Progress to date:

We have customers using in India & getting started in latin america. We are looking to get started in the USA.

Challenge Mission

Affiliation(s)

We are not affiliated with any university.

Key Milestones Achieved and Planned

We have 10,000+ plus patients through hospitals in india using our system for more than a year. ApptoHealth is integrated with their EMR, SoftClinic. We have partnered with Orion health rhapsody to integrate with any EMR in USA. We have received verbal approval from group of 400 hospitals in Peru to integrate our scheduling system and add a voice channel. We have worked with MRI Imaging center here in Colorado for patient engagement. Our next inflection point will be starting pilots with hospitals here in USA.

Our Competitive Advantages

Our use of connecting mind and voice while patients reaching out to hospitals is unlike any other competition on the market. There are some companies working with voice technologies. Orbita is one of the competitors that deploys to voice devices, but their product does not work with calls or routing and also does not provide sentiment analysis.

Barriers to Entry

The adoption rate is slow in the medical world, we will always have the first mover advantage.

Funding, Partners and Alliances To Date

We are in process of finalizing the deal with a group of 400 hospitals in Peru with 2.5 million patients. They really liked our product and expressed interest in piloting. We're self-funded and have raised 100,000+ from friends and family until now. We are looking to raise $500,000+ to expand to hospitals here in USA and globally.
