Diabetic eye screening that happens in the Primary Care setting
Our overall goal is to increase access to high-quality specialized healthcare at scale. We are doing so by building AI systems such as the RETINA-AI Galaxy™ that move specialized healthcare services into primary care settings. Examples of primary care settings include family doctor offices, retail clinics, and pharmacies.
The Galaxy web app is a Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) and it's our flagship product. We are increasing healthcare access globally by building cutting-edge AI Technology that improves both quality and affordability of highly specialized care.
We are an eye-centric healthtech company with a pipeline of products in our roadmap. In addition to diabetic retinopathy, other conditions which AI can be used to detect in the retina include glaucoma, macular degeneration, cardiovascular risk, and dementia.
Our team is made up of healthcare, AI/ML and software industry experts from
