AdviNOW Medical

Founded: 2016

“Today’s healthcare experience is defined by high costs, inefficiency, and long wait times—all of which limit access to care. Our technology uses Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality to transform this reality.

Sitting in front of a computer screen and a rack of simple-to-use, FDA-approved medical devices, patients are guided through self-administered steps to collect data such as weight, temperature, blood pressure, as well as ear, nose and throat images, and chest, lung and abdomen sounds. Questions are asked until the information necessary for diagnostic impression is collected. The total process takes less than 15 minutes. A patient work-up is sent to the healthcare provider with a breakdown of predicted illnesses and treatment options. The provider engages with the patient to confirm the AI-collected information, verify the diagnosis, and confirm or modify the treatment plan formulated by the system.”
