PredOmix Technologies: Delivering AI based Preventive HealthCare App

CIO Vendor According to recent research,the burden of chronic non-communicable diseases (NCD) is rapidly increasing worldwide, and it would contribute to nearly 70 percent of all deaths globally. The NCD burden is projected to further increase over the next decade, with estimated NCD deaths rising to 52 million by 2030. In India, diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease, together account for over 55% of premature mortality in the age group of 30-69 years.

Perfectly understanding these requirements, Gurugram based PredOmix Technologies has developed a first-of-its-kind, innovative, preventive healthcare mobile App HealthOptim that assists users in preventing key chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and kidney disease, thereby helps them in achieving the goal of leading a longer and healthier life. The App is built on the foundation of extensive clinical research, and employs an artificial intelligence algorithm to determine the user's risk for such diseases.

The artificial intelligence algorithm captures the user's profile and compares it with the data from cumulative clinical studies performed over the last 15 years in over 30 countries, covering more than 800,000 individuals. The algorithm integrates well-proven and validated models of risk prediction derived from these studies, into a single, user-friendly platform. Based on these models, the App estimates the likelihood that whether the user will get type-2 diabetes, heart disease, or chronic kidney disease in the next 5 years. Additionally, the algorithm also calculates the 'Metabolic Health Index (MHI)' of the user, which is a new metric developed by the PredOmix. This metric represents a more accurate measure of health, as well as the ageing process.Based on this assessment, HealthOptim then customizes a health optimization plan for the user, and follows through to the last mile by monitoring the implementation of the plan while also providing daily updates on its impact. HealthOptim thus serves as a personal coach, guiding and hand holding the user as she/he
strives for balanced health.

Integrated functioning
What differentiates HealthOptim from the other healthcare apps is its integrated functioning, which covers the entire spectrum from disease risk estimation to its prevention. The three tiered operation mode first involves estimation of disease risk levels and metabolic health index of the user. Based on these levels, it then customizes a health management plan that calibrates diet with physical activity and synchronizes daily routine with the biological clock. These three components constitute the foundation for good health.

We aim to particularly pioneer in the field of predictive and early stage diagnosis of non-communicable diseases through the development of proprietary platforms that are innovative

The Journey ahead
While HealthOptim is the first of its evolving product portfolio, Predomix's ambitions extend also to developing novel technologies for detection and management of NCDs. "We aim to particularly pioneerin the field of predictive and early stage diagnosis of noncommunicable diseases through the development of proprietary platforms that are innovative," says Dr. Kanury Rao, Co-founder and Director of PredOmix Technologies. "Our approach is to integrate'omics'data with artificial intelligence powered analysis, and the platforms based on it will be both accessible and affordable to the community,"he adds.

Moving forward, PredOmix Technologies aims to build on its unique strategy by developing a platform for early stage detection of cancers. This involves analysis of patterns of metabolites in the patient blood with an AI algorithm, to extract disease-specific molecular signatures.
