AI-enhanced personal healthcare monitoring
CatAI digital health platform
About our company
CatAI was founded in late 2021 to meet the urgent need for dependable remote patient monitoring that would both promote patient health and reduce hospital overcrowding, with all its associated ill effects.
Building on their knowledge and experience in emergency healthcare and in computer science, its co-founders and the multidisciplinary experts they have added to their team have developed a next-generation remote personal healthcare monitoring platform that is already proving its effectiveness and reliability in large healthcare organizations.
The company has three patents pending on different components of its solution, and is continuing to add new features in order to further improve the services it provides in the field of remote patient monitoring.

As the global population ages, the number of patients, and specifically elderly patients requiring healthcare monitoring, continues to rise, further increasing the burden placed on the healthcare system.
Hospital overcrowding results in a number of undesirable consequences:
Overloads the medical staff, which has less – often, insufficient – time to devote to each patient
Increases the probability of human error
Amplifies the risk of errors in administering medication
Causes medical caregivers to miss early signs of deterioration
Increases the risk of cross-infection
Heavy financial costs
CatAI detected and alerted to a patient’s chronic increased heart rate. This allowed identifying that the problem was caused by an error in administering medication. Once corrected, normal pulse rate was resumed.
A continuous drop in a patient’s blood glucose level in the morning was detected. It was found to have been caused by incorrect insulin dosage erroneously administered the evening before. The real-time alert allowed immediately adjusting the dose.
Pulse pressure narrowing was detected (implying dehydration). In response to the alert provided by CatAI, the dose of Lasix was adjusted and the patient’s condition improved.
A 57 year old patient suffered a spontaneous brain hemorrhage. He was diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus and started receiving treatment. CatAI-monitored vitals revealed that the treatment failed to control his blood glucose level. The consequent change in treatment led to a drop in his glucose level from 160 to 105, decreasing the risk of a repeat brain hemorrhage.
A congestive heart failure )CHF( patient showed low heart rates. When the rate decreased below 60, there was a clear correlation with low blood oxygen saturation. This was reflected to the caregivers, to consider changes in the dosage of her betha-blockers.
In another case of correlation between the heart rate and blood oxygen saturation level: A CHF patient’s saturation level dropped significantly when her heart rate rose about 110. CatAI alerted the patient’s physician, who made the necessary medication adjustment to keep her heart rate below the dangerous level.
CatAI alerted to a drop in a patient’s heart rate to a level below 50, which could cause serious arrhythmia, and place the patient’s life at risk.
According to a CHF patient’s protocol, he was required to transmit his heart rate, weight and blood pressure measurements only. However, when he started transmitting his blood glucose level measurements as well, CatAI detected that the values were out of the normal range. The physician was alerted, and changed the medication regimen to gain glycemic control.
A CHF patient uploaded his blood glucose levels, although the protocol defined for her by her physician did not include this parameter. The results revealed a trend toward hypoglycemia, which is a life-threatening condition, to which CatAI alerted. After changes in the patient’s diet, her condition improved.
A CHF patient uploaded his weight as required by his tailored protocol. The uploaded weight data showed a 4 kg gain in 2 days, suggesting poor CHF control. Following the receipt of an alert, the physician increased the prescribed diuretics, leading to an improvement in the patient’s condition.
A small share of cases in which CatAI alerted to irregularities and issues requiring urgent attention, enabling medical practitioners to take quick remedial action:

Senior caregiver, Sabar Health – home hospital
"Thanks to the CatAI system, the patients I monitor can maintain constant contact with me. The system allows me to continuously track the medical condition of my patients, and provides me with precise, high-quality information about their medical status in their natural environment.
Using CatAI, I am able to form a reliable and full picture of the medical situation of all my patients. The system directs my attention to those whose condition is deteriorating. The interface is intuitive and easy to use; with one glance, I can see which of my patients needs close monitoring and special attention. For example, when the system alerts to reduced saturation coupled with weight gain, I know that I need to consider changing the patient’s medical treatment. Changes in blood pressure and heart rate also indicate problems that need to be addressed without delay.
As a caregiver attending to congestive heart failure patients, early identification of changes in their medical condition enables me to act quickly, and often prevent further deterioration. The system’s alerts to changes in vital parameters allow me to make data-driven decisions and immediately adjust the treatment.
Importantly, I find that the patients’ response to using the CatAI app is amazing, far beyond my expectations. The process itself is simple and easy for them to execute, the app is extremely user friendly, and they are very pleased to receive my feedback."

"Thank you CatAI - Your app saved my husband.
Years of unstable blood glucose levels have now ended, thanks to you.
Following his stroke, my husband’s physicians warned him that he simply must stabilize his blood glucose levels. Upon his discharge from the hospital to a rehabilitation at home, he started using the CatAI app. His glucose levels were unbalanced, despite having taken prescribed medication for years. With the glucose results reported via the app, at different times of the day , his physician was able to examine his glucose levels, and referred him to specialists at a diabetes center. These specialists changed my husband’s medication regimen based on the glucose test results recorded at various hours of the day, and within several days, his glucose level stabilized at 100.
The ability to continuously record the glucose results, the ability of the specialist to easy access the data, and importantly – the ability to continue tracking the glucose level after the change in medication, helped us resolve a problem that my husband had been suffering from for years.
CatAI app is very easy to use, and definitely saves lives."
