Our work

Helix projects are primarily focussed in three areas of healthcare where we believe our capabilities can make the biggest impact.

Early detection and screening

Early detection of disease improves both the chances of a good health outcome and the efficiency of the health system. Scientific and technological advances mean that affordable, at-home diagnostic and screening tools can be as accurate as expensive, lab-based methods, resulting in fewer trips to hospitals and clinics.

Effective treatment

Acute medicine is complicated, and getting more so. Healthcare professionals on the frontline need digital tools that make it as easy as possible to do the right thing for the right patient at the right time. Our work aims to bring evolving knowledge of best practice and clinical data into the hands of clinicians making complex decisions on the frontline. We work closely with interdisciplinary teams in hospitals, who need data and guidance from multiple sources to look after their patients.

Holistic care

Living a healthy life means more than just exercise, a good diet and medicine. There is increasing evidence that those who have strong social bonds with families, friends and communities tend to live healthier and happier lives. Similarly, high quality care is also driven by the quality of our relationships and interactions with family, carers and dedicated community- based healthcare professionals.
