On a mission to transform healthcare for everyone on earth
babylon was founded with a single purpose: To put an accessible and affordable health service in the hands of every person on earth.
How? They’ll do this by combining the ever growing computing power of machines, with hand-picked medical experts to create a comprehensive, immediate and personalised health service and making it universally available.
Being ill is difficult enough, getting healthcare shouldn’t be. For many of us getting access to healthcare can be inconvenient or costly. But for some, the problem is more serious: almost 50% of the global population has little access to quality healthcare.
Yet irrespective of where they live, most of us have a mobile phone in their pocket. Their mobiles are getting smarter every year: mobile phones today are a thousand times more capable than they were only 10 years ago and they will be at least a thousand times more powerful in the next ten years. Can you imagine the possibilities?
babylon combines the latest technology with the knowledge and experience of the best doctors to make healthcare simpler, better, and more accessible and affordable for people everywhere.
Their goal is to help people around the globe live happier, healthier lives. They have started with United Kingdom, launched in Ireland, and they will soon start providing services to the whole population of an East African nation. Hopefully, that’s just the start.
