Chronic diseases have become a growing concern worldwide due to the aging population and changes in societal behavior, leading to an increase in long-term health problems. The World Health Organization predicts a 57% rise in chronic disease prevalence by 2022, making it a pressing issue that needs to be addressed.
Fortunately, Singapore-based health-tech startup Mesh Bio is stepping up to tackle this challenge. In its third year of operations, the company is using its predictive analytics clinical solutions to reduce the burden of chronic diseases and the shortage of primary care expertise. Mesh Bio’s solution, called DARA, allows doctors to predict diseases before they occur, making healthcare delivery less complex for patients, healthcare providers, and payers alike.
With Mesh Bio’s innovative approach to chronic disease management, there is hope for a better future for patients and healthcare providers alike. By predicting diseases before they occur, Mesh Bio is paving the way for more effective healthcare delivery, ultimately reducing the burden of chronic diseases on society.
