Transforming everyday health, one app at a time

Patients, even those with serious conditions, can be empowered to have greater control over their health through a combination of monitoring, awareness and diagnosis along with education, treatment and prevention.

With our digital solutions, we can help improve healthcare outcomes for patients, says Timothy Broke-Smith, vice president of global pharmaceutical partnerships at Huma. We accelerate the optimization of treatment choices and the transition from one treatment to another so that you get the right products to the right patients at the right time.

Huma, a digital healthcare company providing remote patient monitoring solutions, employs its technology on the digital devices that surround us such as cell phones and smart watches to deliver near real-time data that reports new digital biomarkers of change in disease.

These solutions offer personalized and adaptive indications on therapeutic interventions. They use elaborate input data, which includes new AI-driven algorithms that employ quality, robust data.

This technology allows you to detect when someone is at risk of a very serious event and proactively take them to the hospital when needed, says Broke-Smith.

Huma has also developed a new algorithm that performs cardiovascular risk assessment. It can diagnose in just three minutes whether a person is at low or high risk of developing cardiovascular events over the next 10 years.

Patients using Huma during the COVID-19 pandemic had a three to four times lower mortality rate than those not using the technology,[1] and according to a UK study, 88% of people identified by the platform as in deteriorating condition brought forward their heart surgery date.[2]

This technology also benefits medical institutions. Hospitals using the Humas platform can reduce readmission rates by more than 30% and nearly double clinical capacity[3].

By providing remote management solutions, you actually save those days of hospital stays, those clinic visits, until patients really need them, says Broke-Smith.

At the same time, we are finding new ways to detect disease or its progression so we can improve the accessibility of healthcare and the scale of healthcare delivery around the world.

Digital health is already changing patients’ lives and it’s just the beginning.

Technological advances have spawned a wave of new digital products such as diagnostics, apps and therapies. This means people can take greater control of their health by enabling more informed choices based on personal insights and new delivery mechanisms.

To unlock the benefits of continued advances in digital health, all stakeholders should work together to build a forward-looking and trusted framework that can foster such advances.

Access to health data for healthcare delivery and research purposes, the fuel for these leaps in innovation, must be enabled, along with international data streams that adhere to all necessary privacy measures.
