experience with easy-to- understand explanations, personalized health insights and

smart wellbeing coaching. Medicus empowers everyone to easily understand their medical and health info, engage them with personalized health insights, and coach them every step of the way to stay or become healthy.

Medicus currently covers biometric data, all vitals, full health profile and family

history, medications and the most tested blood, urine and stool markers (currently 160 biomarkers). Medicus is used by diagnostic labs and health insurance companies for both, providing patient-friendly health reports and fostering continuous & personalized wellbeing coaching.

Medicus solves the problem of understanding & communicating medical information & reports to normal people with limited medical knowledge. With the purpose of grasping the full picture of their health and what actions can be taken based on that at any point in time.
It’s important because everyone deserves a simple yet comprehensive understanding of their health, in order to make the right decisions and participate in their healthcare.

Medicus deals with diagnostic reports and health data (vitals, activity, etc.) including lifestyle aspects, combines and understands all of them, and delivers a personalized health feed that:

  • Visualizes & Interprets all test results and health values on the specific health profile
  • Simplifies all medical terms
  • Recommends checkups and screenings
  • Informs with any relevant health risk assessment & organ evaluations
  • Supports with contextual health statistics
  • Guides with personalized health & lifestyle tips
  • Coaches toward a healthier life using designed programs & AI

Medicus is powered by a medical reasoning engine that operates based on the exact doctor reasoning when they look at an individual’s health data and ask them a few questions the engine uses AI that allows for real-time reasoning & interpretation.

It adapts to and personalizes the user experience based on the users’ unique profiles.
The engine is based exclusively on:

  • the accepted medical knowledge
  • medical and health guidelines (country-specific)

Medicus has been built for those who:

  • run any medical lab test and want to understand the underlying meaning of the report numbers
  • are health-conscious and want to be proactive and continuously track & understand their health
  • lead an active lifestyle and are seeking performance improvements
  • have an existing condition and seek to manage it in a highly personalized manner
  • want to turn their own health into something fun to engage with

Yes. Medicus currently primarily targets diagnostic labs, that are interested in modernizing their diagnostic reports, increase growth in doctors, patients and tests and use the interactive smart report as a gateway to create and offer new business models.

Medicus also targets insurance providers that are looking for solutions to meaningfully engage their member base with their health and provide wellbeing coaching & improvement that is measured and quantified. All without accessing or storing their members data.

 

We seek to be the partner of choice for health/medical data interpretation, analysis, and provision of smart and preventive healthcare as well as personalized and actionable insights for users, patients and insurance members.

  • The app communicates with you, based on what you feed it with
  • The more input the app gets (regarding health/ lifestyle data and related info), the more personalized insights it can give you about your health
  • The app also picks up data from connected smart devices (such as your Apple watch), and it personalizes your experience based on your unique profile and interaction with all of our content
  • Based on that, it adapts the type of insights, the tone of voice and the frequency of interaction

There are different ways to input your data to the app.

  1. You can either put it in manually, which is super easy and intuitive for you
  2. Or you can just simply take a picture of your lab test report e.g. and it will automatically add your data to the app
  3. In addition, you can connect the app to your smart devices or upload relevant data from your health kit or other health/ lifestyle apps.
  4. If your healthcare provider, e.g. diagnostic labs or health insurance company is already working with us, you can import your data directly through their digital services

Yes! You’ll be able to connect Medicus once, and then the app draws your device data automatically. This is not ready for our current soft launch release but will be ready for our public launch end of June.

We help you track whatever you want, and understand your health better, sparing you the googling and research, giving you all of those insights and recommendations you need to know. All of this is personalized and adapted to your unique health profile, down to the smallest details.
We’ll explain your health data, we give you lifestyle tips to stay healthy.

No, we’re not replacing doctors. We’re supporting them and making their lives easier. As we explained all health values and matters simply, instantly and based on the same medical guidelines doctors use, saving you time from looking things up and reaching unreliable sources.

The app does not provide professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment and may under no circumstances be used as a substitute for this.

Medicus is exclusively based on the accepted existing medical knowledge and has been developed in conformity with the GDPR and European medical devices guidelines. Medicus is 100% private. Your personal data is only stored on your device, you don’t need an account with Medicus and none of your data gets sent or saved anywhere else. The whole app code sits on your phone, which means that Medicus doesn’t even need to be online to work.

The only exception to this is our scanning service. If you choose to use the option to scan or upload your lab report to avoid adding all results manually, your data will be transferred to our scanning team with your explicit consent for the purpose of scanning service only. Once the data is send back to your app in structured format, the data is automatically deleted from our servers. And since we don’t require an account, we would never know that the data is actually coming from you anyways.

To provide 100% data security, we neither require you to set up an account or store/send any data outside of your phone. You can, however, back it up through iCloud, other such services (Dropbox, Google Drive) or connect your Medicus app to ehealth record provider we’re working with, such as the Gesundheitscloud of Hasso-Plattner-Insitute. This way nothing gets lost and you can simply sync with it again with your new phone.

Not yet, but we’re working on it. To guarantee the utmost data security for you, it will work via a QR code and by connecting with your mobile phone, just like Whatsapp does it. We’ll inform you once this feature is ready.

Absolutely. We’re already in the process to be CE certified as Class I Medical Device. Everything we’re doing regarding medical reasoning, content and data security is exclusively based on the accepted guidelines.

All of our content is strictly and exclusively based on accepted medical knowledge and guidelines (adapted per country). Many of those sources and even further readings links are available on the app, which means that for every info you get from our side, you’ll be able to see which guideline we have it from. To double check all of our content, we work with medical doctors on a consultancy basis who are continuously reviewing all of our data.

 

Currently, the country-adapted content is available for Germany, France, UK, the EU region, and the U.S. If you’re located in any other country, we’ll provide the U.S. or European content for you until we have your country added as well.

Currently the app is available in 4 different languages – English, German, French and Arabic.
