Presenting Companies

Adherean  is taking a novel clinical data platform out of MIT. Comparable to a digital home pregnancy test, our technology uses a single disposable daily assay to measure patient medication levels and other health markers. Rather than a yes/no answer, though, our handheld device encrypts the output of the assay into a secret reward code that can be submitted remotely. This provides us with a home-based way to get direct clinical data on patient adherence patterns, and also to reward patients who are staying on track with their regimens. We are taking on seed capital to support initial implementations in collaboration with Gilead (HIV) and Merck (Hepatitis C).
