Helicon Health started life delivering algorithmic precision medicine in stroke prevention with a strong clinical and socio technical research background. This led us naturally to hone our skills in the internet of medical things, remote vital sign monitoring and remote consultation. We describe what we do as “delivering healthcare virtually” which with quality, integrity and a sense of collaboration and fair-play is our mission.
