There are over 617 million seniors in the world today, and with 10,000 more becoming elderly every day, the demand for exceptional in-home healthcare is skyrocketing. Although demand is rising, advancements in healthcare robotics have not kept pace. With no collaboration between healthcare technology developers, innovations in the industry have been ultimately constrained.

With Kambria open-source innovation platform, developers will be able to put their minds together to create miraculous technologies that could allow your aging loved ones to receive quality care from the comfort of their home. Creating an environment that will breed life-changing advancements in healthcare is a cause that the Kambria team is passionate about and dedicated to accomplishing.

Current Healthcare Technology Challenges

The healthcare industry has suffered from many problems that have effectively suppressed groundbreaking innovations. One of the largest contributing factors to this is the absence of a cooperative environment for developers. Without an easy way to collaborate with other healthcare technology enthusiasts, developers are isolated and forced to start projects from scratch. Kambria believes that the goal of healthcare technology development should be to create meaningful technologies quickly.

Many new healthcare technologies today are created with a backwards approach to innovation. Instead of focusing on the end-goal of creating life-improving technologies, developers have been focused on creating attention-grabbing ones. For example, wearable health devices like fitness wristbands are skyrocketing due to the excitement of a wearable piece of new technology. These wristbands do not solve real health problems, and do not improve the user’s life in a way healthcare technology should. Since developers are so isolated in healthcare technology’s current environment, they have been focusing on health-related technologies that garner attention, rather than make a considerable impact on people’s lives.

Another major challenge healthcare technology developers face is the very real reality of never having their innovations completed and/or discovered. A lack of resources and research can hold back developers from ever finishing the projects they set out to complete. A new life-changing technology could be out there today, with a group of developers that are unable to ever bring it to light or completion. Kambria will give these developers the platform they need to finish their projects and bring new technologies into the market.

How Kambria Helps

The goal of Kambria’s open innovation platform is to give developers the chance to collaborate with other healthcare technology enthusiasts, and effectively speed up the creation of innovative technologies. By using the Kambria codebase, developers in healthcare will experience faster, cheaper, and easier development. Thanks to our licensing system, developers will also be able to gain access to resources and research that other companies are willing to license. They’ll be able to utilize another company’s technology to speed up the developments of their own projects, meaning smaller or independent developers will no longer have to start from scratch.

Caring for the World

Accelerated advancements in brand new healthcare technologies and telemedicine could increase life expectancy globally and create the possibility of remarkable quality of care. We envision that technologies that could potentially save someone’s life without human presence becomes a reality with Kambria.

Researchers at a hospital in Oxford, England, found that 8 times out of 10 AI could more accurately diagnose heart disease than human doctors could.

An AI tool at University of Nottingham in England was able to predict 350 additional cardiovascular events in a sample of 83,000 patients. This directly translates to 7.5 percent more lives saved.
