MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Proveris Scientific announced today the spin-off of real-time, inhaler-specific voice guidance technology to Uneva Health, Inc. The technology is the core of a device/digital health platform Uneva Health is developing to reduce the enormous annual costs of inconsistent dosing caused by improper inhaler use while improving patient engagement and compliance. The platform includes a proprietary device that talks patients through inhaler use steps that are typically missed or done incorrectly, and mobile/web applications for viewing usage data.
“The platform will improve the safety and efficacy of marketed inhalers, and help ensure consistent dose delivery to millions of people suffering from asthma and COPD,” said Sue Farina, Uneva Health’s CEO and former Proveris President. “The opportunity to make a meaningful difference to help improve compliance and patient outcomes, while reducing healthcare costs is tremendous. Physicians and patients are anxiously waiting for the platform to be cleared for the market and see it as particularly helpful for pediatric and geriatric patient populations,” continued Farina.
The technology leverages Proveris Scientific’s decades of experience helping pharmaceutical companies bring effective orally inhaled and nasal drug products to market faster. “We’re excited about the technology’s potential and the fact that Proveris played a role in its creation,” said Chip Leveille, Proveris President. “Uneva Health is focused on the critical factors that affect patient use and we believe it will be very successful.”
Having completed a form factor, functioning hardware prototype, Uneva Health is currently raising seed funding for design-controlled development of its platform and is cultivating relationships for co-marketing opportunities with inhaled drug manufacturers.
