Almost 50% of adults living in developed countries have chronic disease. The World Health Organization indicates that only about 50% of patients with chronic diseases follow treatment recommendations, and only about 20% follow disease prevention recommendations. Chronic diseases account for 86% of all healthcare spending. Raising adherence to disease prevention and disease management recommendations has greater impact on public health than any improvement in specific medical care.
Sweetch's Solution - a unique personalised experience that can be scaled
In a mobile-first world, people are always connected – but not always available and attentive. Sweetch is a clinically validated Patient Engagement Platform that utilises Artificial Intelligence (AI) to significantly increase patients’ adherence to essential health promotion, disease prevention and disease management recommendations in a highly personalised and scalable way. Sweetch is HIPAA, GDPR and Australian Privacy Act compliant.
Deep Tech – Combining Advanced Data Science with Behavioural Modification
Designed to work in real life, Sweetch’s AI-powered Behavioural Intelligence Engine converts millions of data points originating from a patient's smart phone and other connected devices into contextual, hyper-personalised, just-in-time, just-in-place, recommendations. Through analysing the patient’s current context, past behaviours and real-world capabilities, Sweetch’s proprietary algorithms identify the individual’s compliance patterns and continuously optimise the recommendations that each patient receives. Sweetch’s Just-in-Time Adaptive Intervention approach leads to significantly improved engagement and ultimately improved health outcomes.
In a clinical trial conducted by Johns Hopkins, Sweetch achieved 86% patient retention and clinically significant effects on weight loss, physical activity increase, and Hemoglobin A1C reduction. Based on these outstanding results, the Hopkins researchers are now commencing a large NIH-funded randomised controlled study.
