The problem we solve: With globally aging populations, chronic conditions are rising in cost and management complexity; 44 million people already live with dementia, increase to 135 million by 2050. Dementia treatments are poorly addressing medical and social determinants. Also, the current delivery of care doesn't allow for real-time management of declining cognitive functions as 83% of the help comes from family members, friends, and other unpaid caregivers. Preserving dementia patients' cognitive functions and functioning calls for seamless and continuous access to a holistic support system that is not provided by current healthcare models due to resources and scale challenges.
About our solution: myAVOS, a smartphone app placing patients and caregivers at the center that will deploy Personalized Digital Interventions to improve health literacy and improving medication non-adherence by addressing modifiable risk factors that suggest to prevent or optimize disease outcomes in Dementia through a combined digital delivery of remote diagnostics and remote monitoring and remote interventions.Progress to date:
