Epigno Systems Corporation

【AEA 2018 Alumni】
Our core product is an AI based operation room (OR) management system for hospitals.
Hospitals have been suffering from degradation of management, declines in quality of life (QOL) for doctors and nurses due to long working hours. Also, because of inefficiencies in the workflow process around OR, we can see an increase in patient waiting time.
Our AI platform can optimize the schedule of surgeries and staff by allocating each intervention to its appropriate time slot, reducing overtime and inherently minimizing the waiting time for the patient.
The reason why we have focused on operating rooms is because 70% of revenues and 40% of hospital’s costs in Japan come from the OR, which means OR are at the centre of hospital’s management.
To our knowledge, there are no companies within Japan that offer a similar product or service. However, IT companies such as Fujitsu, NEC and others, do offer traditional OR management systems. We have adopted a monthly subscription model to our SaaS offering. Already, we have early adopter and a paying customers. As a next step in our strategy, we plan to forge an alliance with a nationwide medical distributor, in order to expand our product all over Japan.

There are 3 reasons for attending AEA.
1, I think that AEA will be one of the best places for them to make their company known.
2, Their goal is to expand the business to other countries in the Asian region, and I believe that AEA could be that launching platform for them.
3, They have already forged alliances with the academia and they are in the process of joint development and sales with already established companies in the industry.
Therefore, I would like to accelerate their development process and make their product more sophisticated by establishing new alliances.
AEA will be a great opportunity for them to further validate their business ideas and to form new partnerships.
