SAN FRANCISCO ‑ Catalia Health, a patient care management company that provides an artificial intelligence-powered patient engagement platform, has joined the American Heart Association’s Center for Health Technology & Innovation’s Innovators Network.
The network focuses on finding innovative and scalable solutions in the health care market.
Catalia Health’s platform combines AI, psychology and medical best practices to deliver support and everyday care to people managing chronic conditions.
“We’re on a mission to address both parts of the health care equation: improving patient outcomes and expanding the current capabilities and efficiency of health care companies,” said Dr. Cory Kidd, founder and CEO of Catalia Health, in a statement. “This new milestone with the American Heart Association solidifies a critical step in further enhancing our technology and expanding our reach to even more people struggling with chronic disease.”
Catalia Health will work with the AHA to deliver the Association’s scientifically-backed guidelines through Mabu, Catalia Health’s personal health care companion robot. Through active conversation, Mabu will provide comprehensive content about heart health through a guided conversational approach that is available whenever a patient requests it. Mabu is also present to answer basic questions to help educate the patient about the next best action.
Mabu also supports patients living with chronic illnesses such as congestive heart failure, rheumatoid arthritis and late-stage kidney disease, and completes daily check-ins using tailored conversations with patients to help them manage care routines, while providing insights to health care professionals about patient health, progress and adherence to treatment.
