We understand the big challenges faced by healthcare systems and we are leading the way in providing the solutions. We are committed to improving the future of healthcare through maximizing the opportunities available through preventative health and personalized therapy.
Our mission is to understand the patient reality and the needs of health systems to develop technology enabled solutions that are personalized, adaptive, scalable and compliant. We pursue this mission with aspiration and dedication to identify ways in which technology can improve health outcomes.
We believe that individual patients need innovative solutions and together with pharmaceutical and life science partners, we can halve the shocking adherence statistics within years not decades.
The numbers highlighting the need for change...
200,000 - premature deaths in Europe annually due to non-adherence
€125bn - cost to governments of non-adherence in Europe annually
50% - rate of adherence to long-term therapy for chronic illnesses in developed countries
$100bn - cost to US of poor adherence annually
50% - rate of prescribed medications that are not taken as directed
125,000 - deaths in the US annually due to non-adherence
