From our venture studio

Digital Healthcare

New opportunities in the digital healthcare sector range from telehealth to remote patient care to digital therapeutics to newer algorithms for improved insights on patient awareness, on diseases, adherence to treatment regimen, disseminating real-time information on developments in therapy areas, etc. Pharma companies have also started collaborating with start-ups after recognizing the potential of digital platforms, mobile apps, and social media for giving scientific detailing. We see a huge potential of deep tech space (Ai, deep machine learning, NLP) where tech-enabled solutions can expedite
the rate of drug discoveries and applications include everything from gaining deeper data insights, computational and model-based engineering, virtual analysis, and digital continuity to reduce cost and streamline operations. It is abundantly clear that these differentiated offerings must align with an appreciating virtualized economy and where the service is as important as the physical product. If you are an entrepreneur building in any of these sectors, do reach out to us. We have a lot to offer.

AI in Chronic care and Management

Now Digital Health is aiming to be one-stop AI powered healthcare platform allowing patients to better control their health outcomes.

NDH is building to offer Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered health pathways for chronic care, including pain management, liver diseases, ovarian cancer, chronic kidney diseases, low back pain and epilepsy.

Personalized care platform

In an age of hyper-personalisation, everything is moving towards the idea of one. Individualized chronic care combined with AI can lead to supreme outcomes. That's the core of Now Digital Health.
AI and machine learning can help break the vicious cycle of ‘chronic-to-acute-to-catastrophic’ through proactive risk and onset prediction, and mitigation with timely intervention. NDH is aiming to specialize in providing solutions that leverage this understanding to drive value in disease prevention and healthcare delivery through improving identification, prediction and risk stratification of patients, thereby delivering personalized care and better outcomes.

  • Regular personalized care - Deliver personalized patient care on a continuous and regular basis
  • Better Patient Insights - Capture and utilize greater patient insights more effectively. Use AI/NLP to uncover important clinical insights providing 24/7 access to care
  • Seamless integration - between NDH's Care Team and physician's existing workflows and EHR
  • Patient-Reported Data & Outcomes - Both patient-reported outcomes and data derived from medical devices will help augment the learnings. Via mobile apps, patients and their caregivers are engaged to actively participate in their care pathway and its additional supervised modules for adherence, mental support, nutritional support, wellness and education.

Based on a hybrid model, NDH software optimizes daily care delivery by continuously presenting recommendations derived from advanced expert algorithms and deep learning outcomes. Providers will be able to accept or decline those recommendations so that over time, through machine-learning, providers’ choices will become optimally aligned with their desired outcomes.

Championing patient powered research networks

The era of big data, loosely defined as the development and analysis of large or complex data sets, brings new opportunities to empower patients and their families to generate, collect, and use their health information for both clinical and research purposes. There has been increasing recognition of the need to engage patients, families, and other patient stakeholders in research.
The start-up is working towards building on the foundation of trust within the patient communities and draw on their expertise, working with participants to identify true patient-centered outcomes and direct a patient-centered research agenda. It will overcome common challenges including enrolling a diverse and representative patient population; engaging patients in governance; designing the data infrastructure; sharing data securely while protecting privacy; prioritizing research questions; scaling small networks into a larger network; and identifying pathways to sustainability. Currently in stealth mode, Healthacto Techco is building towards

  • Fostering joint ownership - in the identification of health priorities, the development and evaluation of research strategies and their design, and the dissemination of findings
  • A keen recognition and appreciation - for the importance of stakeholder-driven priorities, research, and solutions
  • Building capacity - of both stakeholders and researchers to engage in research collaboratively.
  • Recognizing that conducting the research is not the endpoint but continues on with a commitment to dissemination, spread, adoption and sustainability.

Healthacto Techco is building a collaborative community where clinicians, researchers, parents and patients are empowered to learn and continuously improve to bring about more reliable, proactive IBD care for healthier children and youth.

Building capacity for conducting patient-centered clinical outcomes research

The PPRN concept, a research organization led by patients and organized around the evidence needs of patients, was of particular interest to those who see value in supporting truly patient-centered clinical research.

Healthacto Techco is Asia's first startup in the space of patient powered research network.
