Head of Science and Evidence Generation

Promptly is a digital therapeutics company, collecting and analysing data on the outcomes of care. We develop proprietary technology for patient engagement, real-world data collection, and outcomes analytics, discovering digital biomarkers on important symptoms, adverse effects and treatment outcomes of patients throughout their recovery, using different sources of data. We have been using this data in partnership with some of the most visionary, forward-looking healthcare organizations (Providers, Industry and Payers) to promote better healthcare at lower costs for thousands of patients every day.

We are scaling fast and (hopefully not) braking things. In the next two years, we will enter new markets in Europe, reaching out to new patients with multiple healthcare needs, whom we will help live their lives to their fullest potential. Exciting stuff !
