Company description

Amicomed is the first fully digital platform for Blood Pressure (BP) management combining innovative remote monitoring and lifestyle intervention.

Amicomed leverages proprietary algorithms to provide tangible outcomes through innovative management of chronic diseases. The platform supports physicians with remote monitoring tools enhanced by vitals pattern analysis, and actionable, consumer-grade designed, personalized lifestyle intervention for their patients. 
The platform has been designed to manage all main cardiovascular conditions; BP is the first.

Amicomed's first results in Europe have been striking: 70% adherence with a mean BP reduction (sys) of 5mmHg (up to 20mmHg), peer reviewed and presented to major international congresses (ACC, ASH, ESH, ISH)

The company is currently being accelerated in by Launchpad Digital Health in San Francisco.

Business model

We deliver outcomes. We will address B2B customers that can receive tangible clinical and economic benefits from our outcomes. We will first target care-providers linked to quality metrics (e.g. ACOs, BPCI), impacting positively their quality scores, avoiding losses/gaining benefits (hence willing to pay for Amicomed). Once we wil havel built more evidence as we grow, we will start targeting payers, including CMS, increasing potential users and improving the service

Competitive advantage

In the BP arena, no one provides all the benefits we deliver. Digital therapies (e.g. Omada) aren't focused on BP or fully automated. General wellness programs (e.g. WellTok) don't provide data analysis and aren't focused on BP. Medication reminders (e.g. Medisafe) or BP device companies (e.g. Omron) have BP focus but don't provide data analysis or lifestyle intervention. BP apps are only journals with no data analysis/lifestyle intervention.

We feel our main competitive advantages are:

-So far no one offers our entire streamline of features (remote monitoring and lifestyle intervention, fully automated and focused on BP)

-Proven clinical outcomes: mean BP reduction of 5mmHg (up to 20) and 70% adherence presented at major congresses

-2 proprietary algorithms (over 3years R&D to develop/implement)

-International scientific recognition

-Management Team: unique mix with decades of experience in health and clinical innovation

Furthermore, please note that - due to complementary nature of the services offered - each of the above mentioned competitors could also be a potential partner (indeed we are already partnered with BP device companies like iHealth as well as having other conversations with complementary players).
