Mindify integrates with Electronic Patient Records (PEP) from hospitals and clinics to complement them with forms that are truly easy to use, self-explanatory and able to support decision making. General health professionals gain time and simplified access to skills previously restricted to the best specialists, while managers manage to coordinate care on a large scale and obtain improvements in the financial margins of their health services.


All of this is possible because, unlike the PEP, Mindify engages and guides the assistance teams in such a way that the clinical data resulting from their daily lives become properly structured, validated and more complete.

Data in this quality are unprecedented and enable services capable of revolutionizing Health, such as automation of bureaucracies and team supervision, as well as enabling indicators and even new and cheaper Artificial Intelligence models necessary for the new era of digital Health.

Optix has expertise for 12 years in the area of teleradiology, acting in the flow of medical image management, such as X-ray, tomography, among others. When the radiology exam is performed, the image is automatically taken to a server and entered into the company's software.


Based on this knowledge, at the beginning of the pandemic, the startup managed in record time to develop a new system dedicated to telemedicine, in which specialist doctors consult remotely, in places that previously did not offer access to certain specialties. This type of assistance has been relevant during the pandemic and offers, for example, access to infectologists for the detection and treatment of COVID-19.


The technology

The development of software for telemedicine arose from a need by L2D TELEMEDICINA, Optix's business partner, to offer to a doctor who is in a health unit in a certain region of the country, for example, to be able to consult a specialist doctor from anywhere from Brazil for assistance during patient care. “With the coronavirus, L2D technology has grown and today it is in more than 100 points of telemedicine and with an average of 5,000 visits / month. For this reason, we were asked to develop the software for telemedicine with more features, such as reports, quality control, information security and adequate the General Data Protection Law, among others ”, emphasizes Volkmann.


L2D offers teleconsulting in several medical specialties, including neurology, cardiology, pediatrics, nutrology, infectology and pneumology. The software developed by Optix is already operating in Goiás, Amazonas, Tocantins, São Paulo, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul, Minas Gerais, Federal District, Paraná, Bahia and Espírito Santo. According to Volkmann, the technology differential is access to cutting-edge primary health care: “A doctor who is in a field hospital in Manaus, for example, manages to call an infectologist who is a reference, directly from São Paulo, so that this doctor participate by video in attendance ”.
