PKG Health, today announced that it is presenting at DigiMed Showcase, part of Biotech Showcase™, on January 8, 2024 at 10:15am PT. CEO Zach Henderson will share an update on the rapid growth of the neurology market which combined with a severe shortage of neurologists globally results in a poor standard of care where less than 10% of patients with movement disorders are able to see a specialist. Thus, there exists a large, unmet market need for an AI/ML 'digital assist' to bridge the gap.
"For the rare few patients able to see a movement disorder specialist, there is only enough HCP capacity for 1-2 visits per year. And in that 20 minute visit, the patient is expected to recount everything that has happened for the last 6-12 months. An impossible ask. With PKG, physicians in over 20 countries are now leveraging our system to tailor treatment decisions similar to how CGMs provide actionable data to adjust insulin usage in the diabetes world."
The PKG® system provides a continuous, objective assessment of movement disorder symptoms, such as tremor, dyskinesia and bradykinesia during activities of daily living and in the patient’s home environment. Our industry leading, clinically validated FDA Class II cleared algorithms power precision medicine for patients, clinicians and our life science partners.
DigiMed Showcase is an investor conference focused on driving advances in therapeutic development by providing a sophisticated networking platform for executives and investors that fosters investment and partnership opportunities. The conference takes place each year during the course of one of the industry's largest gatherings and busiest weeks.
“We are delighted that Zach will be joining us in San Francisco and presenting at DigiMed Showcase this year,” said Sara Demy, CEO of Demy-Colton. “DigiMed Showcase is a prime occasion for digital health leaders and investors to come together to discover the potential of innovative technologies that will drive the future of drug discovery.”
