Market mover Predictmedix offers COVID-19 mass screening and now — a telemedicine platform
As COVID-19 global cases move towards 10 million (currently 8.26 million) one company now offers COVID-19 mass screening using a revolutionary form of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The technology also works for infection screening, sobriety testing and various other medical conditions such as mental disorders (depression & dementia). Early adopters are companies wanting to safeguard their workers as well as healthcare operations wanting to keep their premises safe from COVID-19 infection. The technology is suitable for large scale screening by governments, law enforcement, healthcare, other organizations, and employers worldwide.
That company is Predictmedix Inc. (CSE: PMED | OTCQB: PMEDF). Predictmedix has developed a disruptive AI technology that is leading the future in impairment detection and healthcare screenings. Predictmedix‘s AI powered products use facial, thermal, video and audio recognition technologies to determine when individuals are impaired or suffering from infectious disease or mental illness.
In the case of infection, the Predictmedix technology can screen and detect early signs such as temperature variances on the face and body, eye redness, coughing, sneezing, and other signs suggesting infection.
The potential applications are enormous. Imagine the impact this can have on COVID-19 detection, by putting Predictmedix’s mass screening technology in all public places. Combine this with further specific COVID-19 testing on those individuals that are picked up on mass screening and finally we have a chance to trace and stop the coronavirus.

It is still early days for Predictmedix, however given the pace of new contracts, the Company is likely to grow exponentially. Predictmedix collect payments based on a Software as a Service (SaaS) user based model. Clients pay a monthly fee based on volume of screenings per use case, providing Predictmedix with recurring monthly revenue and multi-year contracts.

- Dr Alexander Bardon (Emergency Physicia) – “There is not going to be a medical breakthrough such as a vaccine or drug that is going to solve the COVID19 problem in the near future. Our only effective strategy is the prevention of viral transmission. We have applied travel bans and physical distancing orders to our society as a whole. This has had a devastating impact on our economy and way of life. With AI we could be much more tactful in our approach.“
Predictmedix is moving forward at an incredible pace landing several new contracts and even appointing Microsoft Director of Business Development AI Solutions, Kapil Raval, as the Chairman of their Advisory Board. What started as a technology to detect for impairment has grown to detect infection and other medical conditions. Predictmedix offers an incredibly simple, cheap, yet brilliant, way to mass test globally for COVID-19 in public places without inconveniencing people. They combine this with a simple SaaS revenue collection model.
For investors all the signs are there. Predictmedix already has brilliant technology, early adopters, new contracts, a massive near term demand for COVID-19 screening technology, and now a telemedicine platform to better connect patients and healthcare providers.
