The company has a head office in Quito, Ecuador, and employs people around the globe.

Business need
Rare illnesses can take months to diagnose, as doctors puzzle over test results, review medical literature and consult experts. As patients wait, their conditions may deteriorate or even prove fatal.

Cloud Therapy is harnessing cognitive analytics in the cloud to build a solution that helps doctors interrogate a vast corpus of medical research data and correctly diagnose patients faster than ever.

The solution is projected to accelerate complex diagnoses by 50 percent, giving patients peace-of-mind, and helping them get the treatment they need weeks – or even months – sooner than before.
