These start-ups of the Informatics Institute at Amsterdam Science Park are two of the four most promising innovative scale-ups in healthcare have been announced. These care innovators and representatives from the region have a chance to win a spot in the finals of the National Zorginnovatieprijs 2024: the award for the most innovative scale-up in the field of care and well-being.
From as many as 25 entries from North Holland, four nominees were selected. These innovative scale-ups from the province of North Holland will compete on Feb. 13 in the regional preliminary round of the Zorginnovatieprijs 2024:
– Augmedit with Revolutionizing Surgery: Augemented Reality Insights Beyond Imagination. AI-driven Augmented Reality technology increases surgical precision, improves surgical preparation, provides immersive medical training and engages patients and families in understanding complex procedures.
– Ellogon.AI with EIDOS. EIDOS supports medical specialists in selecting cancer patients in whom immunotherapy is most likely to succeed. About 50% of all cancer patients who receive immunotherapy do not benefit from it. This results in a huge impact on patients’ quality of life and is also cost-saving.
– Kepler Vision. Kepler Vision Technologies uses a unique combination of AI & Computer Vision technologies to remotely monitor vulnerable patients in hospitals & nursing homes. It secures the well-being of patients and reduces healthcare costs by ensuring immediate medical intervention when needed, while addressing the challenges of the global shortage of medical personnel.
– Layco with vela® is a reusable vacuum extractor that makes obstetric care more sustainable and accessible to mother and child. Some 40% CO2-eq and 98% waste can be saved with vela® compared to the disposable version. By offering it at a normal price in high-income countries, the price can be lowered in low- and middle-income countries.
These four entrepreneurs will pitch their innovation to the expert jury and the public at a Zorg2025 meeting on Feb. 13, 2024. During this event, we will combine the regional preliminary round of the National Zorginnovatieprijs 2024 and the official opening of Plus Ultra Amsterdam.
