Mayo Clinic Partnership Details
In addition the round of funding, K Health announced a collaboration with Mayo Clinic through the Mayo Clinic Platform. The joint work focuses on improving and accelerating the deployment of virtual care models to improve patient-centric care. This partnership includes providing clinical decision support tools for Mayo Clinic patients and doctors and helping patients receive autonomous care. This relationship advances the current K acute model, but more substantially allows for the creation of numerous chronic and continuous care model products.
The collaboration with Mayo Clinic aims to enhance clinical decision support tools. Data insights from Mayo’s Clinical Data Analytics Platform will validate K Health algorithms through a federated learning model that facilitates machine learning without transferring data. The data insights will boost “like me” cohort models, giving K’s datasets a vastly larger pool of knowledge to incorporate. This relationship advances the current K acute model, but more substantially, it allows for creating numerous chronic and continuous care model products.
“Mayo’s powerful medical insights will allow us to continue to offer remote and intelligent primary and chronic care at a cost dramatically lower than what most can access today,” said Ran Shaul, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at K Health. “By collaborating with Mayo Clinic, one of the world’s most respected medical institutions, we are further improving our diagnostic accuracy and reach.”
