WHY WE CREATED PILLO
Our homes lack a comprehensive health and wellness digital platform. Existing solutions are fragmented and far from engaging, resulting in low adherence and high attrition for health apps, wearables, and wellness programs. For consumers, these issues contribute to poor health outcomes. For healthcare providers and payers, services become an interrupted series of clinic or hospital visits with a dearth of actionable data. For Pillo, it is a huge opportunity.
We designed Pillo to be a true healthcare companion. He has a charming personality. He can see, hear, sense, touch, speak, and even learn. These functionalities enable Pillo to proactively interact with individuals, increasing adherence, engagement, and ultimately creating an enjoyable home health experience. Providers and payers will also be able to serve and connect with consumers in their homes like never before. Unique and actionable health data will provide insights into customer habits and behaviors.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS PLATFORM FOR THE HOME
We built Pillo on an open Android-based platform to provide a set of core services. These services provide users with the tools and information for better managing their health. He can intelligently answer health-related questions, connect with healthcare professionals, securely store and dispense medications, and re-order them at the appropriate time. He can also sync with mobile and wireless devices such as smartphones, wearables, and Bluetooth monitors to provide notifications while away from home and aggregate health and wellness data. Above all, Pillo’s open platform allows partners and third party app developers to help significantly expand and enhance Pillo’s feature set over time.
THE TRUE HOME HEALTH HUB: A PARADIGM SHIFT
Pillo uniquely combines artificial intelligence, medication management, and connectivity with peripheral devices into a powerful home health digital platform. This platform enables him not only to meet basic healthcare needs and address the critical issue of medication adherence, but also to provide consumers with access to a multitude of health and wellness solutions all from the comfort of their own home. Pillo is the true home health hub.
Pillo brings cutting-edge robotics and artificial intelligence to healthcare, much like Amazon Echo has done for retail, Google Home for information aggregation, and Jibo for social interactivity. As more technology and communications companies vie for customers’ attention within the home, our ability to address a critical human need and our engaging platform solution will differentiate us from the crowd.
