Founder Stories – Myia Health

Applied AI and Healthcare: Myia Health developed an intelligent patient monitoring platform to better support patients with chronic conditions, a $38Bn industry. 

International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates that by 2020, over 2,300 exabytes (one billion gigabytes) of clinically-relevant data we will be generated, with the vast majority coming from non-clinical settings such as personal medical sensors. Thanks to its proprietary AI technology, Myia Health not only makes this data available to clinicians, but is also capable of providing key insights about the current and future health of patients, facilitating richer and personalized patient-clinician dialogue, increasing compliance, and allowing for better care-planning.

Myia Health’s intelligent patient monitoring platform supports patients with chronic conditions such as heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, and hypertension, a $38 billion industry in 2019, that is expected to surge to $130 billion by 2025. Myia’s partnership with Mercy Virtual is poised to revolutionize the industry and become a key standard of care in the upcoming “outcome based” healthcare system.

Myia uses AI technology to predict patient health status and augment the power of frontline clinicians with levels of patient insights that were previously inaccessible.

Myia Health has been a BootstrapLabs portfolio company since 2018.
