Artificial Intelligence (AI) is at the forefront of innovation in healthcare. It has infiltrated the healthcare space tremendously in the last decade bringing in billions of dollars to different sectors. Top AI applications in healthcare include robot-assisted surgery, virtual nursing assistants, dosage error reduction, and much more. These applications are projected to create $150 billion dollars in annual savings for the healthcare economy by 2026. 


Because of this AI healthcare boom, insurers and investors are pouring millions of dollars into these technologies. Here are 9 top AI companies in healthcare to keep an eye on. 

7 Top AI Companies in Healthcare - remedy.png

Remedy Health

Remedy Health’s AI-assisted platform equips non-physician staff with clinical expertise to uncover hidden chronic diseases through phone screening interviews. Early diagnosis allows them to find the best fulcrum point for intervention to positively affect health outcomes and decrease cost. Finding undiagnosed patients will also drastically increase a health system's RAF scores and profitability.


What’s Unique?

Competitors rely only on sparse historical medical records and claims, which are only generated when the patient is in the hospital system, usually after they are already sick. Remedy Health’s system empowers low cost, non-physician staff to proactively screen patients through virtual interviews and capture clinically relevant data outside of the 4-walls of the hospital for timely decision-making.

7 Top AI Companies in Healthcare - biosymetrics.png

BioSymetrics 

Traditional ML technologies are incompatible with biomedical raw data formats, and there are few standards for data standardization, normalization, and harmonization. BioSymetrics solves this problem by deploying its primary solution, Augusta, which is a pre-processing and analytics platform that can process large amounts of data (siloed and raw data) for predictive analytics. This is useful for capturing the exabytes of data released from the 25B IoT devices and other biomedical data types (EEG, MRI and others) and deriving actionable insights from them. The customized and flexible tool can be used for scientists, providers, hospitals, biopharmaceutical companies.


What’s Unique?

Augusta is the first biomedical specific machine learning framework. Augusta is designed to transition time from data pre-processing and integration to model building and interrogation using familiar toolsets within Python. Augusta begins with diverse, raw medical data types (e.g. images, chemical structures, genomic data, tabular data), and operates across three modules: Pre-Processing, Machine Learning, and Architect.
