SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Savonix, a global leader in digital tests for cognitive health, announced today it has been selected to join StartUp Health’s global network and portfolio of health innovation companies.
“We’re convinced now more than ever that StartUp Health is an ideal fit for us, and we look forward to working with other Health Transformers in their network,” said Dr. Mylea Charvat, CEO and Founder, Savonix. “Our lead product, Savonix Mobile, enables clinicians to assess, track and understand a patient's cognitive health and use that data to build better treatment plans based on an individual's specific needs. This approach dramatically reduces patient time and monetary investments, eliminating the risk of missing or incorrect data and improving the overall health of patients.”
The Savonix Digital Cognitive Platform provides real-time cognitive monitoring and feedback to improve patient outcomes. The mobile platform delivers a set of digitized neurocognitive tests via Android and iOS mobile operating systems supported by a web-based clinical data dashboard with integrated clinical decision support and treatment planning guidance. Unlike any other digital tests on the market, Savonix is built by clinicians and uses 3D technology to more accurately mimic pen and paper test conditions with multiple psychomotor conditions including tapping, choice-based selection, drag and drop, scroll and draw.
“It’s very exciting to welcome Dr. Charvat and the Savonix team to the global army of Health Transformers,” said Polina Hanin, Director of StartUp Health Academy. “Savonix’s team is on a mission to achieve the Brain Health Moonshot, as their cognitive testing platform creates clear and reproducible measurements for baseline and ongoing assessments. Chronic diseases, from diabetes to cancer, can impact cognition, and now we can measure and act on this dimension of health. We are excited to support Savonix on this important mission.”
Savonix delivers a fully mobile assessment of cognitive function available on Android and iOS for phone and tablet, the Savonix Cognitive Assessment platform is an accurate, accessible and affordable tool for professional cognitive screens. It empowers healthcare providers, payers and researchers to evaluate and leverage results to improve health and treatment outcomes. Led by clinical neuropsychologists and digital health technology experts, the company has established itself as an authority on cognition globally. To learn more about Savonix, visit Savonix.com.
