WHAT’S THE POINT OF BIG DATA, WHEN IT’S ALL SO UNCONNECTED?
Our behaviour…our choices…our experiences…the way our body works…our
immediate environment - all of this is constantly being recorded and
turned into data. Unfortunately, most of this data exists in a vast
universe of separate, unconnected streams. What if all this data could
be woven together into a more useful, more meaningful, ‘bigger picture’
- which we could access at any time, to add richer context to our future
SO WE HAD AN IDEA:
What if we could harness the power of artificial intelligence and
machine learning to reconstitute all these separate data streams into a
single representation of our ‘digital selves’?
And what if this could all be done on a highly personal level, giving
each person full control and ownership of their ‘digital self’?
This was when AVATR® was born.
OUR STARTING POINT: TARGETING PRECISION MEDICINE
With the population of 65+ year-olds projected to increase by 8% by
2020, half of all global healthcare expenditures - about $4 trillion -
will be spent on lifestyle conditions such as heart disease, stroke
So, in bringing AVATR to life, we’ve chosen to begin our journey with
precision medicine - focusing on the management of lifestyle-related
conditions for both patients and their physicians.
DESIGNING AVATR FOR PHYSICIANS:
Our aim is to help Physicians minimise the pressures that adversely
affect their ability to providing the best possible care. AVATR does
SURFACING RELEVANT, ACTIONABLE PATIENT DATA WHEN NEEDED
ADDING ‘PERIPHERAL’ CONTEXT TO THE DECISION-MAKING PROCESS E.G.
TRIAGING CRITICAL DECISIONS BY INTELLIGENTLY MONITORING PATIENT
MAINTAINING A LEDGER OF ALL MEDICAL/HEALTH DECISIONS MADE FOR THE
SAKE OF COMPLIANCE.
DESIGNING AVATR FOR PATIENTS:
For patients, we hope to build an AVATR that not only gives them a
greater control over their medical data, but also constantly reassures
them as they continue to manage their health. AVATR does this by:
CONTINUOUSLY MONITORING THEIR VITALS AND OTHER HEALTH DATA VIA
MEDICAL-GRADE CONNECTED DEVICES
AUTONOMOUSLY CONNECTING WITH THEIR PHYSICIAN WHEN A MEDICAL
PROACTIVELY ASSISTING THE PATIENT WITH RECOMMENDED BEHAVIOUR
CHANGES SPECIFIC TO MANAGING THEIR UNIQUE MEDICAL CONDITION.
JUST SOME OF THE GREAT STUFF WE CAN DO WHEN WE GET PERSONAL
As mentioned above, our overarching idea is to unify separate streams of
personal data into something meaningful and useful. This means looking
at all aspects of human living, and building an AVATR that can connect
In the future, we hope to explore opportunities for AVATR in the fields
of health & fitness, leisure, education, retail and finance.
