Individual stroke prevention can save lives

Every year, there are more than 270,000 cases of stroke in Germany. Those affected are unlikely to lead a normal, independent life. One in five patients dies within four weeks. In an ageing society, treatment is also an increasing cost factor for the health system.

Targeted prevention can help avert at least 70% of all cases of stroke. Nowadays, preventive measures are rather generic and do not take into account the lifestyle of each and every patient individually

Artificial Intelligence in support of preventive healthcare

We are using the AI-revolution for healthcare benefits – with an app that enables personalized stroke prevention. HealthAdvisor shows users how change in behavior can have an impact on individual risks.

Increased physical activity, reduced alcohol consumption and smoke cessation. Those are, most of the times, challenging changes because patients need to break old habits. HealthAdvisor shows in an edifying manner the connections between individual measures. With that, the app helps patients get closer to their personal objectives step-by-step and discover what types of behavior can help reduce the risk of stroke.

With informed consent to participate in studies, the app data are relayed to research partners. The calculation of risk of stroke is continuously improved by training the AI model, turning the risk of stroke predictable in the long term. State-of-the-art technology — Apple HealthKit, ResearchKit and CareKit, as well as cooperation with prestigious clinics, such as Charité Berlin — can radically better the treatment and prevention of the second most common cause of death in the world with the use of the app.

Manage risks independently, support research, save lives

HealthAdvisor supports doctors in assessing individual risks and encourages patients to maintain a participatory and autonomous management of their health. Users receive a guide through the jungle of complex correlations. At the same time, the research on stroke prevention gains knowledge.

The app thus helps save lives, reduces the costs of medical assistance and brings advances in science, providing researchers with additional data for studies.

“We don’t want people to suffer a stroke because we are too slow at using innovative technology.”
