Can apps and health tech companies help us take care of ourselves? The tech health industry in Brazil is blossoming, and there is a lot of cool stuff to pay attention to.
We decided to take a look at how many tech health companies exist in Brazil. We’ve started with a simple mapping of companies for doctors and patients. As we dive deeper into the information, we’ll present different versions of the data and share it with you.
The number of apps that aim to facilitate the life of doctors and patients is growing very fast (6% of all apps in Brazil are related to the healthcare industry. Note: link in Portuguese), and the variety of services they offer goes from helping patients to monitor glucose levels (Insulinapp) to home care (Rapidoc). These apps can improve the relationship between doctors and patients while offering high-quality services. They are also a good way to assist with the organization of, and bureaucratic issues in, hospitals and clinics. Other apps allow for scheduling video and image exams and also deliver the results – a great example of how we can save time by having things better organized. DOCPAD is an app that offers a way for patients to connect to doctors and also download the results of exams to their device of choice.
On doctors’ side, there is an increasing number of services that offer to better organize the administration and interaction points between patient-doctor for their clinics and, in a larger scale, hospitals. Examples are:
iClinic a medical software that organizes the clinic and increases productivity.
MED ROOM health training for doctors in virtual reality.
3D Virtual Care physical and cognitive rehabilitation of patients using virtual games
Chatbots are also becoming more and more popular in Brazil as they are assuming functions to improve patient care. Cloudia and TNH Health, for example, are getting new functions to have more interaction with their users, whereas Robo Laura, uses cognitive technology to try to fix problems.
With all these options, it is possible to see that movement in the healthcare industry in Brazil is growing despite the slowdown we are experiencing in our economy. This can be explained by the lack of businesses in this area a few years ago; but also, and more importantly, it shows that there is a need in our market to develop more efficient ways of doing things.
To make it “easy” for you we’ve developed an overview of all the tech health companies in Brazil we could find. They are divided into two categories: for doctors and for patients.
