avoMD · Feb 4th 2021
avoMD is a software platform for next-gen clinical guidelines and pathways. By transforming complex medical guidelines into interactive apps that clinicians love, our technology ensures the practice of evidence-based medicine and enhances patient care. Some of our current partners include PM Pediatrics, the nation’s largest pediatric urgent care, and Samsung Medical Center, Korea’s 2nd largest hospital. We were recently accepted into 500 Startups and Startup Health, received a large investment from Columbia’s endowment, and won 1st place in Columbia and Penn Medicine’s annual startup competitions.
avoMD is a no-code platform for creating bot-based modules that help providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses) make better decisions. Each module is functionally similar to buttons bots with conversational interfaces. The platform consists of two components: (1) the avoBuilder, a no-code authoring tool for these bot modules that allows clinician authors to collaboratively “drag and drop” their way to building and updating bots without coding. The avoBuilder is based on ReactJS/Django/PostgreSQL. (2) The PoC/Client App, a mobile and desktop app (available on iOS, Android, and desktop) for clinician end users who can open and access the bot modules created in the avoBuilder. This tool is based on React Native/Firebase.
