Who we are
Kaiku Health (previously known as Netmedi) is a digital health company with a mission to improve quality of life through health data science.
We have built an intelligent digital platform for monitoring patient-reported outcomes in several therapy areas, such as cancer care, fertility treatments and preventive health care. Its unique algorithms enable early interventions and personalized patient support. Currently over 30 European hospitals and clinics are using our platform to better monitor their patients, reducing manual work and allowing prioritization of clinical actions. This along with the capture and analysis of real-world data paves way for more personalized and effective care of each patient.
The company, founded in 2012 by five software developers deeply passionate about health care technology, has now grown to team of 20+ dedicated employees. The company is backed by Reaktor Ventures, along with other venture capital funds and private investors, and is supported by Tekes – the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation.
Digital platform for patient monitoring in several therapy areas, such as cancer care, fertility treatments and preventive health care. It’s fast and easy way for clinics to connect with their patients online and capture real-world data on the efficacy of therapies. Unique algorithms screen symptoms, alert care team and trigger personalized instructions for patients. Kaiku Health for cancer care consists of over 20 follow-up modules that address all most common cancer types and their different therapy options.
Patients use Kaiku Health to report on their treatment related symptoms between clinical visits. Kaiku Health guides the patient according to the reported information. Patients can also express their doubts and worries directly to the dedicated care team textually, or verbally through video connection feature.
The care team receives all new data through the platform, and relevant information is highlighted according to the alarm algorithm. If needed, patient-reported data can be directed to a specialist with one click.
<p>Accounting for patient experience is essential to providing top quality health care. Enabling patients to report their health at any given moment not only helps alleviate stress, but also ensures that the care team is always up-to-date on patients’ condition and can react to alarming symptoms early on. 95% of our patient users find that Kaiku Health supports their treatment and recovery. In cancer care, recent evidence shows that digital monitoring of patient-reported outcomes can lead to improved quality of life and survival of cancer patients (Basch & al. 2017).</p>
<p>Kaiku Health decreases manual work related to patient monitoring. Hospitals have seen a 75% reduction in patient calls among patients using Kaiku Health. Patient-reported data increases the efficiency of clinical visits as the staff is well informed on the patient’s condition upon arrival. Digital patient follow-up can also reduce emergency room admissions by 5-10% (Basch & al. 2016).</p>
<p>Patient-reported information combined with therapeutic data opens significant new opportunities for evaluating the efficacy of treatments and their long-term outcomes, and thus enables the development of new, better targeted ways to treat cancer. Hospitals using Kaiku Health have seen a tenfold increase of outcome data points, enabling better analysis of care outcomes and international benchmarking.</p>
