A systems approach to healthcare innovation
Our focus on quantity and cost of care rather than its value has resulted in an inflexible, rigid system full of gaps, tensions, and friction for patients, care organizations and society. Innovations get bolted on to the complex, inflexible system, solving one problem, yet often creating a myriad of other, even more complicated ones. Just look at electronic health records.
To solve the interconnected problems in healthcare, we needed a system level approach. What is unique about the concept is less the individual components: a data platform, an autonomous vehicle, AI-powered diagnostics, some of which already exist, but how they connect and interact with each other in a system and experience that allows us to maximize value at the patient, provider and social level.
Deeper patient understanding and informed actions
Despite proliferation of connected devices and health apps, health data today is siloed and far from actionable. Aim is built on an integrated, multi-source data platform that facilitates action and eliminates blind spots for clinicians and care providers.
Immersive diagnostic environment for fuller picture
Aim’s self-driving clinic is optimized for self assessment with bridge diagnostics like thermography, imaging and breath analysis. The unit features a built-in, pressure-sensitive scale to measure weight, BMI, balance, and posture; a seat providing an acoustic analysis of respiration and cardiac rhythm; and controlled lighting that facilitates assessment via image recognition. Surround displays provide AI-driven, real-time instructions to the patient.
Augmented interactions for clear communication
Aim allows patients to use simple interactions to share details about how they feel and interface with the bridge diagnostics. Motion sensors paired with “on-body” projections and augmented reality help the user call attention to symptoms.
Visualized data summary for easy prioritization
A highly visual summary of the Aim session helps the patient easily understand and act on the diagnosis. These insights stay with the patient via the Aim mobile app for a new level of continuity of care
Self-driving clinic for increased, more consistent engagement
Aim delivers on-demand healthcare via a self-driving clinic. This minimizes the logistical burden on the patients and makes them more likely to engage in their care, before conditions and costs escalate. At the same time, Aim helps clinicians focus on the more complex cases, where higher-value expertise is needed.
On-board pharmacy for better medication adherence
Aim dispenses the most frequently needed pharmaceuticals, like prescription analgesics, antibiotics, or contraceptives. Maintaining a small inventory of the most common drugs removes the logistical burden of picking up new medication from the pharmacy.
Telemedicine consults for clarity
If the self-guided assessment indicates the patient needs to consult a specialist, the Aim platform connects the user to one of the on-call specialists from participating fleet partners. The Aim clinic can also provide immediate transport to the emergency room, reducing the critical time to get the patient into a clinical environment.
