It pulls data from wearable consumer sensors to give an overview of a person's health.
Biofourmis is the pioneer in people-centric healthcare analytics that uses cognitive technologies to learn an individual’s physiology. It is focussed on building personalized health models leveraging physiological data gathered in real-time so that users get personalised and actionable health insights at any given time.
Biofourmis aims to make healthcare data understandable and actionable to people. "If you look at the technology trend, wearable devices and biosensors are proliferating and people/clinicians are leveraging on such new technologies to monitor patients remotely. However, there is tsunami of data being collected by an individual/patient (approx. ~100,000 TB of data during a human being’s lifetime) and available technologies use traditional population-based approach to analyse the data, which is mostly inaccurate and generate false alarms. Moreover, people are not motivated to comply to these technologies as there is no engagement," Kuldeep Singh, founder and CEO of Biofourmis, said.
To further help them in their mission, Biofourmis built Biovitals. This data analytics engine personalises an individual’s health and builds health models which quantify an individual’s physiology so that adverse medical events can be picked even before any symptom occurs. This engine supports variety of remote monitoring applications making it smarter and efficient. Biovitals is capable of performing data discovery, personalised health models, predictive analytics, patient risk-stratification, real-time contextual insights, personalised AI wellness coach, data visualization and so on.
"If you look at one of its clinical applications, this technology solves the biggest problem in healthcare – you discharge a patient form the hospital but you are still financially at risk. What do you do next? It enables prevent hospital readmissions. So this personalised platform can be used for carious applications, ranging from remote monitoring of chronically ill patients – or post-operative care, to preventive application, which is the wellness," Singh added.
