British digital healthcare company Clinova has launched Caidr 3.0, the latest version of its health and wellness search engine for smart personal care.
Key features include a search tool for health topics, treatments, and products, as well as messages and content on wellness and local health advice when traveling abroad.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT
The app’s architecture is designed by a medical team of pharmacists and physicians with over 250 years of combined experience in patient interactions.
Caidr’s natural language model enables system-wide updates of over 212,000 words of content in just under 0.9 seconds.
The health search engine uses a medical lexicon of more than 97,000 medical terms covering nine medical specialties. Caidr’s natural language processor uses algorithms to create personalized feeds of health content and respond to user search queries.
THE WIDER CONTEXT
Spanish startup Seqera Labs has raised $5.5m (€4.7m) in seed funding in a funding round co-led by European venture capitalists Talis Capital and Speedinvest.
Digital health chatbot Babylon is expanding its work in Rwanda, with the aim of making it easier to access its health services for people who don’t have a mobile phone number.
Arsalan Karim, co-founder of Clinova, said, “Caidr 3.0 realizes our long-term vision to bring the full power of its health and wellness data platform to your mobile device. With a search bar at the center of a redesigned user interface, Caidr Search is both easy to find and simple to use. You simply type in a health topic you’d like to learn more about, and Caidr takes care of the rest.
“If your query sounds familiar, Caidr is creating an article on the health topics you searched for, with a list of smart personal care products. This update, available for download today, highlights the expertise of Clinova’s medical team. Caidr’s content is clear, informative and, above all, good for your health.”
