Patient care management platform deploys AI-enabled robots to catalyze lasting behavior change in patients with chronic illness
Catalia Health, a patient care management company that provides an effective artificial intelligence (AI)-powered patient engagement platform, joins the American Heart Association’s Center for Health Technology & Innovation’s Innovators Network in pursuit of innovative and scalable solutions in the healthcare market. Catalia Health’s platform combines AI, psychology and medical best practices to deliver support and everyday care to the 117 million patients in the United States managing chronic conditions.
The American Heart Association, the world’s leading voluntary health organization devoted to building healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke, and Catalia Health are working together to deliver the Association’s scientifically-backed guidelines in an innovative manner that meets the needs of the increasingly diverse patient population suffering from heart-related ailments, including heart failure. Through active conversation, Catalia Health’s personal healthcare companion product, Mabu, provides 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.
“We’re on a mission to address both parts of the healthcare equation: improving patient outcomes and expanding the current capabilities and efficiency of healthcare companies,” said Dr. Cory Kidd, founder and CEO of Catalia Health. “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.”
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 and overcome the challenges of isolating illnesses, while providing insights to healthcare professionals about patient health, progress and adherence to treatment.
