Minds Medical’s algorithm helps with unstructured medical data, in the coding of patient treatment and the invoicing of them. Their main tool is an OCR software, with an NLP-AI behind it. The team of MINDS-Medical estimates a 50%-60% productivity improvement in coding processes with their tool.
Minds Medical’s algorithm can also help with medical risk analysis for insurance companies. The tool can be applied in health insurance and life insurance. The MINDS-Medical team estimates a 30% efficiency improvement with their tool. The tool currently helps to improve the decisions with their tools by 10-15%.
The startup is an Unibator Alumni (http://goetheunibator.de/?lang=en), which is the startup accelerator program of Goethe University in Frankfurt.

When I saw that some of the processes in the health care system suck, I just asked myself „how can we fix that”.
