Meet the Regional Finalists: Hygeia

Hygeia offers a solution to manage healthcare risks in a smarter way, allowing hospitals and healthcare providers to improve profits, strengthen reputation and, best of all, save more lives.

Their solution gathers real-time data on patient condition, prescriptions, nutrition supplied, test results, hospital infrastructure, medical staff condition and other information to calculate each patient’s risk of developing pneumonia, urinary tract infection, sepsis and other complications. This allows healthcare providers to detect undesirable events in advance so that medical staff can take preventative measures.

Hygeia is a Brazilian startup company that will compete next week against the 5 other Latin American Regional SmartCamp finalists. If they win they will advance to the Global SmartCamp Final in February 2013.
