Healthcare services all over the world have become increasingly unaffordable and inaccessible (66.7 million people in the U.S. are living in Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services).
The leading technological approach to address this challenge is launching online medical consultation services, where a patient consults a doctor remotely through a video or a phone conversation. This approach suggests significantly lower healthcare costs and much better accessibility. However, online consultation services have failed to be adopted in large scales mainly because patients do not feel they have really been checked (physically), and the remote physician indeed could miss some essential health measurements that would otherwise be obtained while meeting the patient in the clinic face to face.
The solution that BodiByo offers addresses those issues by offering the patient and the remote physician an experience that is as close as it can get to a face to face consultation. Our solution allows a remote physician to listen to the patient's lungs and heart sounds, have a visual image of the patient's larynx or ear canals, view skin lesions, and more – all in real time while having a discussion with the physician through video or phone call. Using BodiByo’s solution, the patient would experience a real physical examination, and the remote physician would obtain objective medical information for a correct and reliable diagnosis. BodiByo’s solution is the first and only solution that delivers real-time health measurements for a remote medical practice.
We at BodiByo believe that our technology and service will bring affordable and accessible diagnostic and care to millions of people around the world.
