Explore Groundbreaking Healthcare Innovation in Israel
Partnerships are critical to any growth strategy, though this is particularly true in Israel. With more startups and unicorns – private companies valued at $1 billion or more – per sq capita than any other country, Israel's high-tech sector continues to skyrocket. Through the right partnerships and commercialization support, the US healthcare market stands to benefit.

Over the second half of 2022, we'll explore the critical role of the Israeli and Philadelphia partnership, how it is accelerating digital health innovation, and what this means for you.

Aging people and people with disabilities can significantly improve their life by using Assistive Technology (AT). Yet only 10% will benefit from using it due to lack of awareness, funding, leadership, and coaching. Atvisor has developed an AI-based digital health platform that supports assistive technology assessments and the decision-making process. Our AI engine steers users to the optimal product - products they often were unaware that existedaccording to their personal abilities, limitations and needs. Our mission is to improve the lives of
millions by making Assistive Technologies more accessible and personalized.
IPrimary care physicians spend 2.5-3 hours a day performing exhausting non-patient facing tasks: Patient requests, prior authorizations, prescription refills, and lab results reviews. As a result of the pandemic, this burden keeps increasing, and primary care physicians are busier than ever before, suffering from massive physician burnout. Solution: Droxi's AI tool helps primary care physicians reduce the amount of time spent on non-patient-facing tasks and improve the quality of care by creating a Patient-Specific Storytelling. Physicians no longer have to go through dozens of different tabs and thousands of fields in the medical record. Instead, Droxi identifies and visualizes the most relevant clinical factors for each task so that physicians can cross them off their list quickly.
Innosphere provides a non-invasive electrical brain-stimulation medical device, AI based for treating ADHD without side effects. Our AI algorithm allows to personalize the treatment by tailoring the treatment protocol according to the symptom's severity of each child. Innosphere has achieved excellent results from the clinical trial that we conducted at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, where we managed to reduce the ADHD symptoms severity by nearly 50% after ten treatment sessions of 20 minutes each, with a long-lasting effect over two months. This clinical trial was led by Prof. Itai Berger from Assuta Medical Center and Prof. Roi Cohen Kadosh from Oxford University in collaboration with Prof. Bruce Wexler from Yale University. The results were published in the prestigious Neurophysiology Journal.

Paragate Medical
Paragate Medical is addressing one of the greatest unmet needs in healthcare: a solution for chronic fluid-overload heart and kidney failure patients, who are considered the “frequent flyers” of the hospitals. The company develops the IPUD, a fully implantable device that actively prevents fluid accumulation and the resulting need for frequent admissions by continuously and slowly draining systemic excess fluids from the tissues to the urinary system, as a mechanical bypass of the kidneys. This solution is first of its kind to provide a truly out-of-hospital 24/7 treatment.
Combining EMR summary techniques, sophisticated AI and big data access, Profility helps set the right treatment for the right cost, in the best matched facility. The platform oversees the patient from admission through hospitalization to post-acute care, and the solutions support all the critical decision points in the continuum of care. Profility is a cloudbased platform with multiple solutions, serving all the relevant decision makers – acute teams, post-acute provider teams and the payers. Profility is fully operational, working with leading providers in the US, serving thousands of patients every month.
