Graduates from MIT, IITs, IIMs and other globally renowned universities are working on an innovative healthcare solution powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). LIVEY promises to be a powerful ally for doctors treating skin diseases and infections.

LIVEY’s AI- powered algorithm will help doctors and users identify skin conditions by sharing differential diagnosis in just three easy steps in a mobile app.

“This AI-enabled tool is a dermatology related mobile application that will play the role of an informative assistant, enabling doctors to get a first-level classification of skin diseases while sitting thousands of kilometres away from the patients. This can save a lot of time, effort and cost through easy access to unbiased, consistent, good quality diagnosis and treatment,” said Gaurav, co-founder of LIVEY.

“LIVEY has emerged after years of research, tonnes of historical data and deep learning proprietary algorithms resulting in meaningful patterns across hundreds of skin disease classes and helping in identification of various skin conditions. In the coming months, the team plans to build on this health care solution so that more patients and individuals can use it to answer questions about skin issues,” said Rohan, co-founder of LIVEY.

“Human skin is the largest body organ. According to the Global Burden of Disease research, skin diseases continue to be the fourth leading cause of all human diseases, affecting around 1.9 billion people at a time, almost one-third of world’s population. In India, burden due to skin diseases increased by more than 54% over the past three decades,” Rohan said.

Gaurav said skill development and digital ways of working, led by advances in technology, can help address infrastructure gaps in primary healthcare and deliver healthcare to the last mile. “With this clear vision in mind, our team with graduates from MIT, IITs, IIMs and other globally renowned universities are working on building a world-class Data Science and AI-powered solution,” he said.

LIVEY is only intended for differential diagnosis as many conditions require clinical review, in-person examination, or additional testing like a biopsy. For patients who may be using the search bar as their first resource, this tool can provide some useful information about dermatologic issues for a variety of skin conditions. “LIVEY will give users access to authoritative information so they can make a more informed decision about their next step and keep their skin healthy and happy,” said Arushi, co-founder of LIVEY.
