Ten Israeli health tech companies were among 16 international firms invited to St. Louis, Missouri to pitch their technologies to 75 senior representatives from area hospitals, corporations, venture capitalists, and partners at the GlobalSTL Health Innovation Summit on Wednesday.
The GlobalSTL Health Innovation Summit is the annual confab of GlobalSTL, the international company recruitment initiative of BioSTL. The organization said it vetted more than 750 digital health firms for the event.
The summit introduces transformational technologies to the St. Louis health care industry that can specifically improve the quality and access to health care while lowering costs by solving challenges in patient care, health care delivery, and hospital operations, event organizers said in a statement.
The 10 Israeli companies presenting at the conference include A-Eye Health, an AI-based tele-retinal screening company; AiDoc, a company using radiology AI to flag acute abnormalities; Healthy.io, the smartphone-based urinalysis firm; Healthymize, the company that provides personalized AI-based voice analysis turning smart devices into remote patient monitoring systems; IBEX, the AI-based digital cancer diagnosis company; Kryon, the robotic process automation system allowing health systems to increase call center efficiency; MilagroAI, the real-time predictive analytics platform; MyndYou, the AI platform that tracks behavioral and cognitive-related conditions in the elderly; Nuvo, a wearable pregnancy monitoring and management platform; and Uniper Care, a digital health and wellness platform to address social isolation in seniors.
