This Medical Moment Episode 1 – Facial Recognition in Rare Diseases

On average, a patient with a rare disease takes 4.8 years to find a correct diagnosis. For patients and families searching for answers, this wait can be agonizing. FDNA’s Face2Gene technology is helping to change the standard of care and shorten the time to diagnosis – all through the use of a smartphone.

PRECISIONeffect President Carolyn Morgan is joined by Dekel Gelbman, former CEO of FDNA, to discuss:

  • The pain points in effectively diagnosing rare diseases amongst HCPs and patients
  • How artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the standard of care and shortening the time to diagnosis in rare disease 
  • How FDNA is shifting HCP behaviors and beliefs to drive adoption and use of their smartphone technology  
  • Health equality and how smartphone technology and AI can help bridge the gap.
