Last week, three Israeli start-up joined over 700 physicians, scientists, technologists, hackers and inventors at Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego for the 7th annual Exponential Medicine Conference to explore how the convergence of new technologies may impact prevention, diagnosis and treatment. 

Here’s what you need to know about each of these Israeli companies:

19labs gained traction at the Exponential Medicine Innovation lab last week with Gale – a clinic in a box.

Gale, after Florence Nightingale – the founder of modern nursing, pairs easily with industry leading diagnostic devices to allow non-techie caregivers to share results with healthcare providers from remote locations.

The great interest in 19labs was around its ability to display results instantly creating a real-time doctor’s visit, serving as a remote ICU in medical emergencies, and perhaps most importantly – it’s potential to bring high quality healthcare anywhere, and make a dent for the better in social determinants of health.  

Eyal Gura, founder and chairman Zebra Medicine Vision spoke at Exponential Medicine and received great ovation for Zebra’s recently announced AI1 model, offering radiologists Zebra’s AI imaging insights for just $1 per scan.

The next day it also announced its deal with Google cloud storage services, helping healthcare providers to manage high storage costs.

Zebra uses a database of millions of imaging scans, along with machine and deep learning tools, to analyze data in real time at a trans-human level, to help radiologists with early detection and growing workloads.

Yuval Mor, the Beyond Verbal CEO, spoke at Exponential Medicine and shared their recent collaboration with Mayo Clinic.

Mor unveiled the results from a new study demonstrating a strong correlation between voice characteristics and the presence of coronary artery disease.

Beyond Verbal started with a technology that extracts a person’s emotions and character traits using their raw voice as they speak, and now extends its bio-marker analysis capabilities to early detection of disease.
