AUSTIN, Texas, May 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ns1ghter announced its no cost, open source health service today. Ns1ghter will be offering unlimited access to their U.S. board certified doctors to anyone, free of charge. Their goal is to remove barriers, which prevent patients from understanding their health, and apply machine learning to promote efficiency and insights for better patient care.
"We spend more time thinking about our bank accounts than we do our own health. Our only call to action regarding our health is when we reach a tipping point and break. It's time to move away from a model of sick care and embrace managing health as a continuous process," said Rishi Madhok, MD, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of Ns1ghter. "Providing unlimited access to a doctor is the first step. Using our machine learning platform, we're able to provide unique insights for our customers about their health. We can address issues before they become an emergency and eventually move past maintaining health to our goal of improving health."
It starts by understanding who you are and what's important for you. From this, Ns1ghter builds a profile and creates your unique plan to maximize what you seek to gain from health care. With your permission and using best-in-class security, Ns1ghter's platform aggregates your genetic, medical, behavioral, and digital signals and applies machine learning to deliver insights on your health. Coupled with their medical service, Ns1ghter delivers an unprecedented level of personalized medicine and a plan of care that is optimized to you as an individual. The goal is to manage your health and enable you to get better returns. When you do get sick (yes, that will still happen), Ns1ghter will make sure you are getting the best care and are on the right treatment plan. Ns1ghter wants to manage your greatest asset: your health.
"As the margins for healthcare continue to be put under pressure, we are seeing a concurrent increase in demand for radiology," said John Conidi, Managing Director of Capitol Health Limited. "This requires a different approach and thinking to the industry. Ns1ghter's unique model embraces the new value of data and machine learning in generating value for our business and ultimately providing better patient care."
Starting today, anyone can request access to Ns1ghter's platform including no cost health care visits over secure video or messaging. Ns1ghter will also offer free second opinion case reviews for customers and provide unlimited uploads of medical records for secure storage. Users can sign up online and interact with Ns1ghter over any computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Through funding and marketing partnerships, Ns1ghter is able to offer its services free of charge. Ns1ghter always protects its members' identities and any identifying information. De-identified data generated through Ns1ghter's services will be used to develop algorithms for providing efficient care through machine learning.
Ns1ghter's platform is comprised of three components:
- Unlimited messaging and video visits with an Ns1ghter provider
- Case reviews for second opinions by our expert medical panel
- Machine learning platform that delivers insights directly to patients on their health as well as facilitates the patient-physician relationship
Leading the development of the platform is CTO and co-founder Bo Vargas. "Fee for service is dead, regardless if in the United States, United Kingdom, or Australia, and we need to move beyond sick care. We will be able to provide services uniquely curated for our customers based on their specific health profile," added Bo Vargas. "Ns1ghter was developed for a specific purpose with a unique goal. We are not seeking to update the broken infrastructure of health care, but instead looking to wipe the slate clean and build the very best system."
