Make our schedule

Physician’s rotation calendar scheduling is an exhausting and challenging work for the chief of staff, taking up to 20% of their time. Our solution is a web and mobile application based on artificial intelligence technology, specifically using a genetic algorithm, for the creation of the automated calendar scheduling. The scheduling calendar uses the feedback of chief of staff and practitioners as the input of the system to create calendars maximizing doctors satisfaction by the prediction, identification and avoidance of potential conflicts.

Nebula-X (Winners of 2017)

Colorectal cancer is the 4th most common type of cancer and 2nd deadliest in the USA. Colonoscopy is the preferred procedure to detect and remove colorectal polyps, which can evolve to cancer. However, there is an astounding 22% polyp miss rate. In addition, due to physical discomfort, inconvenience, and embarrassment, this method is disregarded by patients. Nebula-X is developing a safe, comfortable (minimally invasive), cost-effective and accurate solution to detect colorectal polyps in order to increase compliance and reduce polyp miss rate.

Red4Med

Red4Med is the integrated solution which enables the physicians to take the right decision about doses of the X-ray examination and avoid the extra radiation risk for the single patient. Red4Med will be delivered to each health care unit for free, according to the social responsibility.
