Co-founder Keaton of InforMED Global envisioned breaking the language barrier between healthcare professionals and patients. He identified a significant disparity between the quality of healthcare; the amount of diagnostic testing, and patient disease ownership. Through an offline mobile healthcare language translation tool, InforMED is refining diagnosis, enabling the heightened specificity during the physical exam. Keaton hopes to implement artificial intelligence with machine learning for real-time data results using one’s smartphone.
