Atos and Huma partner to innovative remote monitoring technologies

Innovation, MedTech, Atos and Huma partner to innovative remote monitoring technologies

The five-year partnership between Atos and Huma will seek to improve healthcare and research with innovative remote monitoring technologies.

Atos and Huma, the digital health innovator, have announced a 5-year strategic global partnership to shift healthcare and clinical trials from hospital to home. The partnership will focus on Huma’s modular platform which can power digital ‘hospitals at home’ up to national scale, as well as support pharmaceutical and research industries to run complex global decentralised clinical trials. The platform is already used in the US and across Europe for illnesses ranging from atrial fibrillation to diabetes to Covid-19.

Atos will use its experience in implementing and scaling complex transformation projects to accelerate the adoption of Huma’s technology. This will include investment by Atos worth up to €20mn split across R&D and go-to-market resources, including dedicated consulting and sales personnel. The investment in R&D will fast-track the integration of the Huma platform with other leading clinical platforms, as well as develop a dedicated video module.

The immense pressure exerted by the Covid-19 pandemic on the world’s healthcare systems exposed the weaknesses of current models already overstretched with ageing populations and the rising global incidence of chronic conditions. Innovation is needed to improve both patient care and the overall efficiency of the care chain. Atos and Huma’s approach means patients are monitored outside of a hospital and given timely, proactive clinical intervention ahead of need, ultimately optimising resource use, improving patient outcomes and reducing long-term healthcare costs. Early-stage evidence has shown Huma’s service, which has already been operating nationally across Germany, England, and the UAE, can almost double hospital capacity.

Robert Vassoyan, Head of Health & Life Sciences business, Atos, said: “We have great excitement about this partnership, as we are convinced that Atos and Huma can drive a systemic shift from reactive to proactive models of care. Huma is the company we’ve been looking for in this important mission that resonates with each of us personally as we seek to improve the lives of our family, friends, neighbours and society. This is a partnership worthy of the mission.”

Dan Vahdat, CEO and Founder of Huma, said: “This partnership takes us to a new league – we have already shown that we can create a service for a new disease area in a matter of weeks, as we did during the pandemic, and that we can go live with over 100 clinics in a day. Atos will supercharge our work so we can offer services at scale, anywhere in the world across the delivery of care and pharma collaborations leading to more people living longer, fuller lives.”

The partnership will benefit from Huma’s class-leading software platform and 40+ patents and Atos’ extensive professional service expertise in digital strategy, change management and service management.

The 5-year partnership will begin with integration, enabling global go-to-market deployments, but will also combine Atos’s expertise in driving digital adoption, support and infrastructure with Huma’s digital care, clinical trials and biomarkers. The companies conservatively expect the combined service will reach €100mn in revenue per year within the first four years.
