About Ubie 

Ubie develops and operates products that support people involved in healthcare and those receiving healthcare with the mission of "To develop a healthcare guide for everyone".

There are many challenges in the medical field today that hinder people from receiving medical care. For example, there is an excessive workload of healthcare professionals. There are uncertainties in the content of patient interviews and medical records due to the nature of the language, and this places a burden on the doctors who read and write them. In addition, the workload on the medical staff is enormous because a lot of manual documentation works are needed. These workloads are not only lowering the quality of life of medical staff but also leading to problems such as not being able to provide sufficient clinical education in the field, patients losing the opportunity to find the right treatment.

Our Product 

Ubie - AI Health Assistant digitizes the entire process from the interview to the consultation. The system not only digitizes but also uses an algorithm supervised by physicians to ask questions tailored to each patient's symptoms without excess or deficiency. This will not only reduce the workload of doctors by reducing the time required to create medical records but also improve the medical field from multiple perspectives, such as enabling more accurate and fulfilling consultations between patients and doctors and improving the patient's medical experience.

Ubie is a med-tech startup founded by a doctor and an engineer. Their goal is to help guide patients to the right treatment at the right time using technology.

They accomplish this with a pair of products: the first is an AI-powered medical interview system (“Ubie”) in use by hundreds of prestigious medical institutions across Japan and Singapore. They pair this with a separate patient-facing app that helps users determine what ailment they may be facing by analyzing their symptoms from home.

Ultimately the use of their products enables hospitals to streamline their outpatient workflow using AI and helps doctors allocate their time as efficiently as possible. Needless to say, this is absolutely crucial given the COVID-19 pandemic and Japan’s aging population.

Ubie also collaborates actively with partners outside of medicine (life sciences, wellness) to develop an ideal health ecosystem. In 2020 Ubie received the “Japan Service Award” for innovations in reforming the work style of doctors.

The company showed their commitment to helping people when the COVID-19 pandemic began: they made their flagship product 100% free for over a year. Their product helps improve the efficiency of doctors’ tasks, so it’s effective in helping prevent the medical system from getting overwhelmed.

Ubie also received additional funding of nearly $20 million in 2020, and took their first step toward global expansion — they set up an office in Singapore. With many cultural and geographic similarities to Japan, this was a logical next step for the firm in their goal to expand throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Ultimately Ubie hopes to impart their vision, “Hello, Healthy World”, to all of the world’s people.

Ubie’s expertise has even been recognized by the Japanese government. JETRO (Japan’s External Trade Organization) selected Ubie to help them in their efforts toward achieving digital transformation in the Asia region.

They plan to continue to focus on improving both their consumer and hospital-facing products starting with their AI disease prediction engine and keep building more products.

So if you want to work on a product that can make a real impact on society, consider applying to Ubie.
