Crystal Lake, Illinois, December 14, 2023 – Aptar Digital Health, a global expert in Software as a Medical Device (SaMD), digital Patient Support Programs (PSPs) and disease management solutions, today announced a new partnership with Legit.Health, an innovative artificial intelligence (AI)-based medical device (CE-marked) software company, which aims to transform patient care and increase patient adherence to better manage skin conditions.
Legit.Health’s state-of-the-art technology, which supports the diagnosis of approximately 300 conditions, including atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and skin cancer, will be integrated into Aptar’s Digital Health proprietary platform. Focused on enhancing patient care and increasing patient autonomy, this advanced digital solution will support healthcare professionals (HCPs) to diagnose skin conditions earlier and will enable patients to start sooner on treatment plans to improve their overall quality of life. The solution may also be used to facilitate patient enrolment in clinical trials.
Legit.Health’s use of AI for monitoring disease progression through automated, clinically validated scoring systems such as the Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) and SCORing Atopic Dermatitis (SCORAD) will be leveraged within this partnership. This will help to ensure patients receive the most accurate and timely information to manage and treat their skin condition more effectively. The AI-powered technology also extends to the quantification of the intensity, count and extent of the visible clinical signs of skin conditions, offering HCPs a more precise measure of disease severity, an indicator considered critical in determining the most appropriate treatment.
This strategic partnership is set to drive digital transformation in the healthcare sector. The combined expertise of Aptar Digital Health and Legit.Health will pave the way towards harnessing the power of AI to improve patient experiences and outcomes in immuno-dermatology.
Sai Shankar, President, Aptar Digital Health, stated, “Since 2021, Aptar Digital Health has been growing our portfolio of technology partners to provide improved solutions for patients in multiple therapeutic areas such as cardiology, neurology and visual acuity. With this new partnership, Aptar Digital Health is acquiring the ability to leverage AI technology to accelerate the diagnosis and monitoring of skin conditions.”
Andy Aguilar, CEO and Co-Founder of Legit.Health, commented, “One of our main aims within the medical assistance process in the field of dermatology is to be able to offer patients the opportunity of having the earliest and most accurate diagnosis, with the appropriate referral and treatment to reduce uncertainty and waiting times.” She added, “Legit.Health’s technology helps the medical practitioner to provide this kind of care to their patients and today, thanks to our partnership with Aptar Digital Health, we will be able to reach even more people who will benefit from our service.”
