Kanda is honored to receive a Best of Show Award for Patient-Focused Software solutions alongside our clients, Intervention Insights and LifePod.
We extend our thanks to the exceptional panel of judges who recognized Intervention Insight’s Trapelo real-time precision medicine platform and LifePod’s Virtual caregiver as innovative solutions disrupting Life Sciences and Healthcare industry by addressing important problems in patient care.
The awards program recognizes the best of the innovative product solutions for the life sciences industry on display at the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo 2019 in Boston.
The Best of Show program relies on a panel of expert judges from academia and industry who screen eligible new products and hear presentations from finalists on site. This year our judges considered 31 new products and viewed presentations on site from 12 finalists.
Trapelo is the only real-time precision medicine platform that enables everyone involved in cancer care to align their decision making and reimbursement policies with the most current clinical evidence in molecular oncology. The platform features configurable practice, lab and payor modules that facilitate real-time, evidence-based decision support that lets oncologists know what to tests to order for which patients and from which labs, and then helps them interpret the results for more informed treatment decisions – all of this in the context of the patient’s insurance policies. This optimizes efficiency while giving oncologists confidence they’ve ordered the most relevant tests based on their patient’s disease and clinical stage.
LifePod’s Virtual Caregiver service, expands the capabilities of popular smart speakers (e.g., Amazon’s Echo) with patent-pending innovations that make LifePod an easy-to-use, 2-way voice service for seniors or chronically-ill patients living at home and their caregivers. Unlike traditional voice assistants, LifePod can be set up and controlled by a remote caregiver using LifePod’s online Portal and Dialog Management System. In addition, LifePod’s unique “initiation” capability – enabling LifePod to speak to a senior without first being “woken” by the user – means the senior doesn’t have to remember a “wake word” or how to phrase commands in order to feel more connected and supported. Instead, LifePod provides proactive, voice-first check-ins and reminders each day, and encourages senior users to access voice services (e.g., music, weather, etc.) to enhance their day, based on routines configured online by their caregivers.
