UPDATES ON AN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE DIGITAL HEALTHCARE SOLUTION
Diagnos Inc. (ADK.V) reported it has successfully screened over 71,000 diabetic patients and received payments on time for services.
The 2016 contract covered ISSSTE's diabetic population from Mexico City and the metropolitan area. Over 71,000 diabetes patients were screened in record time in order to help prevent patients from going blind and accelerate referral for treatment to safeguard patients' health.
"Diagnos's artificial intelligence platform (CARA) delivered outstanding results during the screening operations, demonstrating the efficiency of our solution. The data collected will be very valuable to our clients in identifying further actions to be taken with their diabetic population. We would like to thank ISSSTE's leadership and the Mexican government for taking the lead in preventing blindness and trusting our artificial intelligence services, which will help reduce and streamline diabetes costs," said Andre Larente, chief executive officer of Diagnos.
