A new investment round for EIT Health Headstart winner Clinomic

MedTech start-up Clinomic has raised 7 million euros to revolutionise intensive care medicine with AI.

Aachen-based start-up Clinomic has just announced the closing of a new funding round with a total of approximately 7 million euros. The investment comes from a consortium of private investors and family offices from Germany and Austria. With the latest funding round, Clinomic is closer to shaping the intensive care medicine of the future.

Founded in 2019 as a spin-off from the RWTH Aachen University Hospital, Clinomic won the 2019 EIT Health Headstart award with Mona, the first intelligent voice-operated bedside device for the intensive care unit. With their evidence-based solution, the founders want to optimise the treatment of critically ill patients and make intensive care fit for the future. Data from diagnostic devices and based on the latest medical research are aggregated on a single screen. Then, using artificial intelligence algorithms, Mona supports doctors and healthcare professionals in making precise treatment decisions and in the efficient use of time resources. Thanks to powerful AI algorithms and telemedical modules, the system acts like a very experienced colleague directly at the patient’s bed.

“The way intensive care is practised today can no longer continue. The burden on medical and nursing staff is high and the complexity continues to increase”, says PD Dr. med. Lukas Martin (co-founder). “Artificial intelligence algorithms can help us to rectify this situation. After all, doctors should have more time for their patients rather than having to spend it in front of screens”, adds Dr. med. Arne Peine (co-founder). (Source)

The founders of Clinomic can equally be proud of receiving two renowned Red Dot Design Awards 2021, which internationally recognise high design quality in terms of product design and usability. Clinomic is also involved in the NeuroSys research cluster and was recently selected as one of the 10 Finalists in the OUTOFTHEBOX.NRW Award by the federal government of NRW.
