Consulto.ch, a virtual clinic offering holistic and personalised care
Consulto.ch is a platform aiming to bring holistic and personalised care to patients with complex health conditions. The startup project comes from the EPFL lab of Digital Epidemiology and have received support from the Foundation for Technological Innovation (FIT) and the EPFL Startup Launchpad.
It’s estimated that one in three adults suffer from complex health conditions. This means they either have more than one condition at the same time, or a condition which impacts multiple areas of the body. These conditions range from diabetes, to Alzheimer’s, to respiratory and heart diseases. These conditions need ongoing and extensive care with patients relying on a range of different doctors.
Consulto.ch is a virtual clinic which offers patients the benefits of team-based care. The platform hosts independent doctors, generalists, and specialists, who connect and work as a team on a specific patient – no matter where they’re based. Consulto.ch has already had significant traction with their idea and is already working with medical partners in Switzerland.
The FIT selection committee has awarded a FIT-Innogrant of CHF100,000 to Consulto.ch that will help the team validate their traction and move to the next stage.
