Experience

Cogni.Dx

Co-Founder and CEO

London, UK

April 2020 - Today (2 years and 7 months)

Cogni.Dx Ltd. is a London-based startup company that provides early-stage diagnostic and long-term care solutions for neurological conditions. It has developed a unique digital diagnostic application, powered by proprietary Artificial Intelligence, for the early detection and diagnosis of all stages of dementia and pre-dementia (MCI) through an automated history taking and cognitive assessment process. The tool requires no clinical judgement and can be administered promptly at home by the patient and/or carer and later reviewed by a primary care physician. This vastly reduces the waiting period for a dementia diagnosis at the primary care level and distinguishes dementia from normal ageing and psychological disorders.
