Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Piron is building new ways to improve healthcare assistance through the use of IoT and artificial intelligence.
We currently have a system to lower medical costs and make communication between doctors and patients more easier, giving automatic feedback to doctors about patient health 24 hours a day

WHAT IF - Inspiration: Write one sentence that describes a way that your project dares to ask, "WHAT IF?"

What if everyone in the world could have access to better health care with a simple touch on a screen?
About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

The problem we are trying to address is the communication skills in patient-clinician relationship and the lack of efficiency in the administrative process at hospitals, day to day care clinics and private medical offices.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Our proposal is to offer a platform to receive examinations at extremely inexpensive devices, where everyone could take an exam platform that sends data via satellite to a central processing data very quickly and returns diagnostics plotted with data other patients who can help you understand what generates certain disease.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

We can help people to warn of diseases before they happen or even help in treating these with our equipment. All health data about the patient are sent to our servers, which are handled by our systems, which cannot be identified is sent to experienced health professionals to enable them to diagnose.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

Currently we are starting our work with people, for the future we imagine with all that the entire population is inserted into our systems so we can eg issue alerts if an illness is growing on a large scale, in which regions of the planet occur more outbreaks to companies and organizations or even we can treat the same preventing a pandemic. But we do not just only diseases, but also to inquiries on a daily basis in doctors' offices, hospitals, clinics, among others.

Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

Nowadays, the systems in use worldwide do not think of how you can be the future. We created this process of thinking about how we can shape a new future. How can we create something that society has freedom and quality? The Piron health seeks to develop systems that defy linearity, delivering features that help professionals, but they never knew it could be done. We are seeking partnerships with profit and private profit institutions to spread all we can do and how we could create a different future of what has been said in all the media.

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

We plan to sell our products to private companies at prices far below the value marketed by other companies, and with a higher quality, for nonprofits plan to donate, and all mass information without data that can identify patients plan to sell to area businesses, and emergency information plan to donate to government institutions so that they can act in cases of illness, for example.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

Our project is aimed at health institutions to differentiate themselves from others believe in the thinking about the future is our greatest difference, we want to change what has been said about the planet's future, we seek to put together something that helps people to develop with quality health, now all systems develop the same things, we seek to create something unique, delivering solutions that not even the pros thought could exist to help you.
