Catalia Health is a patient care management company that provides an effective, scalable, AI-powered patient engagement platform for individuals managing chronic disease or taking medications on an ongoing basis.
Imagine if every patient with chronic disease could have their own personalized wellness coach available around the clock to support them with their healthcare journey. This is now possible with the Mabu wellness coach platform. Mabu is an affordable companion robot that can have conversations with patients in their home regarding their healthcare & well being.
Mabu is unique in that she incorporates psychology, evidenced-based medicine, & artificial intelligence to create engaging daily conversations that are tailored for each patient’s personality & needs. An individual talks with Mabu similarly to how they interact with other voice or screen activated virtual assistants like Siri or Amazon Echo. However, unlike these assistants, Mabu remembers information, learns about the patient & personalizes conversations accordingly. Her conversations incorporate the patient’s condition & treatment as well as the psycho-social aspects of their disease. Conversations may address how they're feeling, their medication schedule, or mitigating treatment side effects. In addition, Mabu also offers tips for managing anxiety, depression, nutrition & daily activities.
These conversations happen largely through voice-based interactions, but are also through text, mobile, and web interfaces when patients are on the go. Together, these conversations delivered through a physical robot create a deeper relationship and are available any time patients need support. The data reported back through the system gives Catalia Health’s customers valuable information in order to better understand the daily activities & needs of their patients.
Mabu’s ability to transmit data via APIs allows Catalia Health to work with healthcare systems, payers, pharmacies, and pharmaceutical companies to enhance the reach of existing care management programs and close the gaps in care. The result is a better quality of life for the patient, lower costs for the patient and healthcare system, and more positive health outcomes overall.
We will be commercially launching our platform for patients with rheumatoid arthritis and kidney cancer by early summer 2017 and a platform for congestive heart failure by late fall 2017.
