Harnessing patient innovations

People optimize the way they experience a service by making it more convenient and affordable. When detected those optimisations lead to cost and outcome improvements that could drive important benefits in sectors badly in need like healthcare.

What we do

The pharmaceutical industry is moving toward new sources of revenue based on high value services. Our software platform enhances the rate of adoption of new services by focusing on patient outcomes through the analysis of their behavior on social networks. In addition, the platform helps to minimize the development costs of personalized health solutions by providing a collaboration tool for all partners involved in the design of the service.
