MySignals’ aim is improving the future of health services to cover one of the main challenges of the century: enhancing the universal accessibility to a healthcare system for more than 2 billion people worldwide. This means that approximately a third of worldwide population can not access to an early diagnosis when the first symptom is detected.
The reason is that the healthcare system, the monitoring and diagnosis devices are expensive. The eHealth platform has reduced the cost 100 times in comparison to a hospital Emergency Observation Unit and is is portable in a small suitcase to be distributed anywhere.
