Patient-centric digital
companion
products
for marketed
therapies

Huma's digital companion products complement existing treatments, empowering and connecting patients, clinicians and healthcare systems to improve quality of care and simplify patient data capture.

The current situation

The unmet need for
patients, clinicians

and healthcare
systems

Digitalisation has become a strategic priority across life sciences stakeholders, especially in regards to remote monitoring. Additionally, the benefit of preventative health is increasingly being considered by health-conscious consumers who are open to share data and voluntarily track themselves with apps, wearables, and other devices.

Improving marketed
therapies

Huma’s digital companion products complement existing treatments and care pathways by empowering patients to better understand and manage their own health. Companion products enable direct communication and data sharing amongst all life sciences stakeholders, which transforms care, improves adherence, and clinical decision-making.

The opportunity in
patient adherence

45% of patients with chronic conditions show medication non-adherence, causing at least 100,000 preventable deaths and $100 billion in preventable medical costs per year 1.

Our solution

Huma’s digital companion products increase patient adherence through medication reminders, providing visibility of medication adherence to care teams, and empowering patients to take control of their own health.

The opportunity in
evidence collection

Real world evidence is increasingly being used by life science companies to help demonstrate a product's comparative effectiveness, safety and value in the real world 2.

Our solution

Huma’s digital companion products support efficient prospective collection of real-world evidence, to help demonstrate the clinical and cost effectiveness of therapies and support market access and reimbursement decisions.

The opportunity in
data capture

Despite the 1:4 ratio between doctors and paper handling staff, 70% of specialists are collecting poor quality patient data 3.
