Description
"Aifred Health is a Montreal-based digital health company focused on clinical decision support in mental health, starting with depression. Depression affects over 300 million people worldwide today. Currently available treatments are not well-differentiated and physicians are often insufficiently trained in the management of complex mental health conditions, leading to an arduous and lengthy “trial and error” approach to treatment. Aifred operationalizes best evidence guidelines, together with AI-based insights, to support better treatment management, and matching of individual patients to the right treatment, with the goal of getting more patients to remission overall and also improving time to remission for those patients."

Aifred is a semifinalist in IBM Watson's AI XPRIZE, a competition that seeks to use AI to solve global issues.
