Our Work


The team develops innovative, affordable solutions for the Indian market. The approach is to get an in-depth view of healthcare delivery, understand the needs of patients, healthcare workers and hospital administrators in the areas of screening, diagnoses and disease management. The areas include congenital errors of metabolism in neonates, early screening of heart diseases, analyzing physiological 
signals emitted by the heart and monitoring the condition of fetuses in the womb to signal any early sign of distress. Our applications are in the spaces of cardiology, oncology and peri-natal care. They are enabled by advanced pattern recognition to modernize clinical diagnostics. We accomplish this by clinical investigations, computational system evaluations, simulations on the input data and modeling. We work in an open-innovation environment with research and clinical partners in India, and also in China, Europe and USA.
