Alexandria Health is a healthcare app that optimizes the use of big data analytics to guide doctors through ambiguous problems. Doctors can enter their patient’s information and the app assesses the patient’s risk based on hundreds of thousands of similar cases. Complex algorithms are distilled into understandable questions that are easy to follow.
Doctors are expected to make extremely tough decisions that deeply affect the lives of their patients and their families. In many cases the problem is ambiguous, making it difficult to navigate and provide a solid treatment recommendation. The immense amount of pressure often leads to over-treatment which needlessly extends patient suffering in areas like oncology.
The name of the company takes inspiration from the library of Alexandria, one of the largest and most significant libraries of the ancient world. It housed hundreds of thousands of scrolls in dedication to the pursuit of knowledge and learning.
With a similar objective but with contemporary resources, the brilliant team at Alexandria Health have figured out a way to optimize the use of data analytics to distill hundreds of thousands of “digital scrolls” of medical information into accurate and understandable algorithms. Alexandria Health aims to enable doctors to maximize patient vitality by clearly guiding them through ambiguous problems.
