LEH (Libertatis Ergo Holding B.V) and Interhealth Holding B.V. invest a total of €500k in the Leiden-based startup dHealthIQ B.V. dHealthIQ supplies analytical software to elderly care institutions (in dutch: VVT).
dHealthIQ is on a mission to improve care for the elderly and physical rehabilitation by connecting nurses, health care professionals and family members to their state-of-the-art artificial intelligence platform.
dHealthIQ’s software uses data from various wearables, medical devices and sensors that help elderly persons to live at home safer and longer. The AI-based analytics includes frailty detection and automatic recognition of wellbeing and behaviour. These insights help care professionals provide a personalised care plan for patients, improves efficiency and keeps family members connected and informed.
The investment will be used for the further development of the frailty algorithm, to carry out pilots in various elderly care institutions, and to expand the team.
