(Biotechnology, Medicine and Health)


Santa Barbara Smart Health is a company created in 2016 by Fresenius Medical Care, a German company that is a world leader in products and services for patients with kidney failure, focused on developing disruptive technology based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the field of Medicine. Its main objective is to transfer knowledge and medical culture to the Point-Of-Care.

Medical knowledge is growing so rapidly that it is almost impossible for a human being to be up to date with the latest information available. That is why the AI ​​awakens a great interest, due to its possibilities to get involved in situations where a large stock of medical knowledge is required, fast data processing and effective decision making.

Santa Barbara Smart Health uses its technology to develop products and services focused on improving the quality of life of patients and their well-being through innovation and development of software tools to support medical diagnosis and assist medical professionals in making decisions.
