It is time for change!
The right to health is universal. Every person should have access to healthcare. Therefore, it is unacceptable that billions of people do not have access to adequate healthcare and every year millions die from treatable conditions. Fighting this injustice is what motivates us and what keeps us up at night. If we want to address this need successfully, we need to work smart and we need to work together. And we know we are not alone. All over the world there are health workers fighting for their patients, even in the most challenging settings. These people are essential in getting patients the care they need and deserve.
The impact we make
Sustainable development GOAL 3
GOAL 3 is a social enterprise named after Sustainable Development GOAL 3 (SDG 3). This is one of the 17 sustainable goals of the United Nations to draw attention to the world’s biggest challenges. SDG 3 focuses specifically on good health and well-being. With subgoal 3.2 aimed at reducing (preventable) child mortality. We named our company after SDG 3 as a tribute and a mission statement, advocating and innovating for good health and well-being worldwide.
Via the IMPALA monitor we are making an impact on improving the efficiency of care. Our results from our first pilot in St. Lukes Hospital, Malawi, show a reduction in mortality by 61.7% in the pediatric ward (P-value 0.05), and a 26% reduction in admission time (P-value 0.09). Our analysis reveals that the costs per life-year saved is approximately $5 which makes the IMPALA system a highly cost-effective solution.
Actions speak louder than words

Proof of concept
Ballistography (BSG) is a non-intrusive and low cost alternative to electrocardiography for heart rate monitoring in infants. We did a study with the aim to estimate heart rate from a bed-based pressure mat ballistography signal using a deep learning approach. Download the full study via the button.

Patient deterioration scores (PDS) are objective assessment tools to identify patients at risk of clinical deterioration. Use of PDS has been shown to reduce mortality and critical events in high-resource settings. We conducted interviews with healthcare workers to gain insights into the current use and usability of PDS in low-resource settings. Download the full research via the button.
