nEureka® is a telehealth Data-as-a-Service platform transforming costly episodic care to personalized, efficient, and accessible remote care for epilepsy.
ALAMEDA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Novela Neurotech, a Data-as-a-Service company developing personalized remote epilepsy care using connected consumer data, will showcase its nEureka® for Epilepsy platform at the virtual CapCon 2020 Venture Conference, Sep 29 to Oct 1, 2020.
Over 3 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with epilepsy, which is characterized by unpredictable seizures. Although a chronic neurological condition, the current status quo for epilepsy healthcare relies on punctuated clinical visits—often three months apart—which delays critical healthcare decisions for epilepsy management. Roughly 70% of epilepsy cases can be controlled with medication, and medication adherence is a key factor for keeping seizures at bay. Epileptologists often adjust their prescriptions using the patient’s self-reported experience of their seizure counts and side-effects. Therefore, precise seizure counts and side-effect data are critical to inform healthcare decisions.
However, current options for tracking seizures and medication are antiquated & inaccurate, fractured, lacking and episodic.
1) Antiquated & inaccurate: Patients often rely on pen-and-paper journals, or single-function seizure tracking apps, to log their seizures, which easily leads to forgetting and inaccuracies.
2) Fractured: Separate alarms and apps are needed for medication reminders, activity and mood tracking, promoting frustration and confusion.
3) Lacking: Patients who are aware of an impending seizure cannot easily notify family for help. During sleep, 1 in every 150 patients with uncontrolled seizures may experience SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy), a devastating condition that is preventable — if provided with adequate monitoring or intervention methods, which are currently lacking.
4) Episodic: with a 3+ month gap between physician visits, patients experience a lag in critical healthcare to keep their seizures under optimal control.
The nEureka® for Epilepsy system combines everyday consumer devices, a cloud data platform and real-time alerts into a powerful all-in-one Epilepsy Remote Care Solution that resolves current pain points. Wearables embedded with seizure-related biomarker sensors will allow continuous recording of biomarkers, and simplified one-button tracking of seizure events to increase the accuracy of seizure counts. Built under the guidance of epileptologists and people with epilepsy, nEureka® also includes SOS alerts to caregivers—day and night—providing patients with independence, and caregivers with peace-of-mind. All data are seamlessly transferred to the patients’ physician portal, and organized as a dashboard into clean and informative charts for easy 24/7 review and follow-ups.
As certified by Impactable, nEureka® delivers significant healthcare impact including $2B+ reduction in cost to reach optimal treatment in the next 5 years in the US alone, with a 40% improvement in medication adherence.
“Altogether, nEureka® for Epilepsy transforms antiquated Epilepsy Care from single snapshots in time to a continuous, data-rich movie. Long gone are the days of intermittent, guess-based healthcare. nEureka® paves the way for patients to launch remote visits with their physicians—anytime, anywhere,” says Ray Iskander, CEO of Novela Neurotech.
