Dr. Anton Titov, MD. What is your vision to improve healthcare delivery? How does your vision differ from that of established healthcare systems? Dr. Anita Goel, MD. Most patients around the world use hospitals to access healthcare today. I believe that the next generation of healthcare needs will be more mobilized, decentralized, and personalized. For the last four hundred years our entire paradigm for delivering healthcare is based on a centralized model. You go to concentrated nodes of healthcare infrastructure, you go to centralized hospitals and labs. You send your blood samples there to get information about your own health. The result of the centralized paradigm is this. Today we have over four billion people on the planet who don’t have access to basic health care. Here in the United States we have more than a multi-trillion dollar crisis on our hands. Dr. Anita Goel, MD. Whether it’s Obamacare or Trumpcare, these policies alone cannot solve the impending healthcare crisis. At Nanobiosym we are doing for health care what Google did for the information industry, what cell phones did for the telecommunications industry, and what Apple did for personalizing computing. We are mobilizing, decentralizing and personalizing the next generation of healthcare infrastructure. For the last four hundred years our entire paradigm of healthcare delivery has revolved around the centralized model. You go to a centralized hospital, you access experts, you have nodes of concentrated infrastructure to get information about your own health. Our entire model of diagnosis is based on a centralized lab model. You go to the doctor’s office, they draw your blood or saliva or urine, or body fluid. They ship it into a centralized lab. The laboratory requires very complex machines, running water, electricity, trained personnel, big expensive machines. Then the data come back to your doctor’s office. You go back in for a follow-up visit and then you get your prescription and the next steps. Dr. Anita Goel, MD. This process in the United States can take anywhere from days to weeks or months. It depends on what diagnostic test you are getting. It depends on what geography you are in. Entire centralized infrastructure that defines the developed world infrastructure is lacking for four billion people on this planet today. So four billion people on earth don’t have access to this centralized diagnostics infrastructure. So the diagnostics paradigm that you are developing is a point of care diagnostics. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. This is available to people where they live, at their point of care. That’s right. So we have this vision. We would like to empower you to take ownership over your own health. We want to make it possible. Anywhere, anytime, in any place you can have information about your own health. That’s the bigger dream that we’re building towards. Dr. Anita Goel, MD. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. What is Gene-RADAR and what can it do today for people in laboratory diagnostics? So Gene-RADAR is a mobile diagnostic platform that harnesses our own research for the last twenty years. It is my own journey in nanobiophysics to make it possible to do real-time sensing of biological information based on DNA and RNA molecular markers.
