Additionally, they enable pharmaceutical companies in identifying individuals who might benefit from their drugs for these conditions. ArtiMed has recently expanded its portfolio to broaden its scope to include risk stratification for other post-Covid issues such as major cardiovascular conditions, including myocardial infarction or stroke, associated with a previous Covid infection.
  • C the Signs is focused on giving every patient their best chance at surviving cancer by detecting cancer at the earliest, most curable stage. In under 30 seconds, C the Signs has the ability to rapidly identify which cancers a patient is at risk, and recommend the most appropriate test or specialist to diagnose their cancer.
  • DeepMetrics operates as an AI-driven ICU automation platform company. The company has developed an AI model for automatically adjusting ventilator settings, which has been tested on approximately 2,000 ICU patients over roughly 4,000 ICU days. Their AI demonstrates the capability to control ventilators at the level of intensivist, offering verifiable guarantee of optimality. Currently, they are in the process of submitting their findings to a top journal and pursuing a U.S. patent. DeepMetrics is actively working toward securing a 510(k) clearance from the Food and Drug Administration while simultaneously raising $5 million in seed/pre-series A funding.
  • Genomate Health Inc. develops AI-powered computational tools for personalized medicine. Its main focus is assisting physicians in making optimal personalized treatment decisions for each patient based on the complex molecular characteristics of human diseases.
