By 2020, chronic conditions such as cancer and diabetes are expected to be diagnosed in minutes using cognitive systems. By 2025, AI systems are expected to be implemented in 90 percent of the US and 60 percent of the global hospitals and insurance companies (source JP Morgan).

Today DIAGNOS helps take care of more than 135,000 patients. We are using AI in more than 15 countries to help detect anomalies in retina due to diabetic retinopathy. We are making a difference today and we are preventing blindness. DIAGNOS CARA system combines the latest in advanced retinal imaging with clinical interpretation of the images. The painless, non-invasive procedure takes minutes to complete, and gives a visual representation of the states of one's diabetes.

As per DIAGNOS's President, Andre Larente, "Early diagnosis allows doctor to prescribe treatments earlier. With our CARA solution, we intend to diminish the highly repetitive work in screening a large group of patients and empower doctor to spend more quality time in delivering care."
