AI platform to transform healthcare for a billion people

About Us

We live in a world where two thirds of the planet’s population have insufficient access to radiologists, making it a challenge to implement health screening at the population level… leading to loss of opportunity for early diagnosis and treatment to save lives.


At iota medtech, we aim is to collaborate with healthcare providers, radiologists, and medical specialists to co-create and launch solutions to solve healthcare challenges globally.

We are developing multiple AI medical products to improve patient outcomes in areas such as prioritization of urgent medical cases, and medical imaging health screening at the population level. 


Since June 2019, where we signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Neuroscience Institute to develop a priority sorting system for brain scans for head injury patients, we have since then embarked on multiple AI projects to make early diagnosis more accessible for healthcare practitioners and patients.


To accelerate the development of our AI products, we developed our AI assisted annotation platform, called iota AIAA. This platform is available to be deployed in a healthcare cloud and it can speed up AI product development and annotation by up to 10 times, saving precious time for our AI developers & collaborating radiologists when co-creating AI products for early detection  of cancer, intracranial hemorrhage, strokes and more...

The core of our mission at iota medtech goes far beyond developing AI-led solutions in healthcare, it is to provide a platform for clinicians, radiologists, and healthcare providers to join us to transform healthcare for the millions of people living in Asia, the US and beyond.
