HealthLynked Corp., a Naples-based nationwide health care network that uses cloud-based software to connect doctors, patients and medical data, has filed for a patent for its artificial intelligence program.
The program is called ARI, or Augmented Real-time Interface. It combines “technology and human touch,” according to a statement, in order to ensure “patients receive timely and relevant health care advice.”
The AI-powered tool is multilingual, the company says, with a customizable avatar feature where patients can choose the gender, ethnicity and appearance of their ARI avatar. Another feature is interactive profiles, where patients, the company says, “can converse with ARI as if they are speaking to a nurse or doctor, making the data input process more intuitive and engaging.”
With the patent filing in place, HealthLynked expects to launch ARI before the end of 2023, the release states.
"AI stands at the forefront of technological advancements poised to dramatically reshape our lives in the coming decades,” HealthLynked CEO Dr. Michael Dent says in the statement. "Its potential is vast and its implications profound. Nowhere is this transformative power more evident than in the realm of health care. As we navigate the complexities of modern medicine, AI offers the promise of personalized care, predictive diagnostics, and a level of patient engagement previously unimagined."
HealthLynked is traded over the counter under the symbol HLYK. It posted $6.36 million in revenue in the past 12 months.
