Candiphi Healthcare Private Limited

"Candiphi Healthcare’s main objective is to bring healthcare to the home and help with the early detection of critical illnesses like cancer,diabetes,Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular diseases. The software diagnostic platform that we are building has an open and flexible architecture that will allow us to integrate with different kinds of medical devices.

Our first integration is with a unique, FDA approved, Clinic-In-a-bag product. With the help of this product our m-Health and online doctor consultation platform will bring a whole battery of non-invasive tests to the doorsteps of people and give them their test results instantly on their smartphones. They will then be able to spin up consultation calls via audio, video or chat to a doctor of lifestyle specialist of their choice, download prescriptions, order for medicines and have them home delivered. Our Integrated diabetes management platform will allow users to not only keep track of their glucose levels but will also keep them informed about how their other organs are being affected by diabetes, e.g. their kidneys, feet and eyes.

The second part of our platform that we will launch in Q4 of this year is our deep learning platform for the early detection of Alzheimer’s. Here, we analyse thousands of PET scans and MRI images and classify them as cognitively normal, EMCI or full-blown Alzheimer’s. Doing this will potentially help us save 10 years of a person’s life by starting their drug treatment earlier than they would have, had they been detected at the full-blown Alzheimer’s stage. Early detection and prognosis of Cancer will follow"
