Elevator pitch

Fighting a chronic disease is a tough journey. However, each journey can become easier with a companion. CHealth is a mobile app facilitating the connection between people that have survived tough diseases, patients and caregivers. The user also gets adequate information freshly tailored from authentic sources. The app will start focusing on 3-5 types of critical cancer first. Later on, we will expand it to ALL Cancer and other Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). CHealth is the Community Health platform of Tomorrow!

Investor proposal

To get momentum in our campaign, early investors will receive 10 percent reduction in share price (until reaching 20%). The offer means that an investor will receive more shares than indicated, for the same amount invested.
 
Through patient testing, CHealth has a proved concept that we want to scale. We need ambassadors and your support to help cure cancer globally.
 
Serving 1Million patients within the first 5 years, CHealth’s value would exceed €30M. All revenue will be reinvested in learning progress(AI) and improvements. The valuation would be around €5 Billions in 10 years, based on the first announced profit.
 
 

Idea

The problem this product solves

Today, patients are concerned about diseases and how these diseases can impact their future.
 
As a result, many unanswered questions constantly follow these people .
 
Through discussions with patients CHealth found similarities;
  • Patients need concise information from verified sources
  • Patients need empathy from someone who has experienced the same journey who could hear and understand
 
Cancer patients are looking for
  • better treatment options
  • new hope from next research
  • and willing to join trials when there was no other option left.
 
CHealth successfully updates the existing and out dated communication options and improves support within healthcare systems.
 

How the product solves it

By working in the pharmaceutical sector and reading about mobile technologies entering healthcare, we saw the possibility of building a community by connecting patients and professionals.
 
At CHealth, we made some early prototypes and asked people to try the online platform and chat with patients experiencing the same problems.
 
The testimonials say that these people liked the feeling of talking to other people in the same situation and that they would definitely use it in the future.
 
Nurses focused on cancer treatments told us that this system can improve their daily work and also help patients and families.
 

Product

Product features

There are many local support organizations today and a lot of information that can be gathered online through different blogs and forums. However, these have limitations:
 
  • Support is not available 24/7
  • Lack of information on rare cancer types in specific locations
  • Scientific data are accurate, but complicated for non-scientis audience
  • Sorting information is hard due to the massive supply
  • Not all information is trustworthy
  • A lot of information is outdated
  • Time is limited
 
Our mobile app can be available anytime, everywhere and follow these needs on the righttime.
 

Product use cases

The app is customized so that each patient can use the app in a way that suits their needs.
 
  • Tailored data means just enough knowledge each time for each user.
 
Instead of communicating in the classic way with one or two individuals in health systems, the users will be offered a cycle of health that includes, not only nurses and doctors, but researchers, rehab and more professionals on demand as well.
 
Users can contact other individuals 24/7 to discuss their worries and get personal peer-to-peersupport.
 
The app can also be used by care-givers, kids in the family and parents.

More analysis of Market & Competitors (Major Players) available in Business Plan.
 
However
It’s important that everyone competes against cancer.
To serve our customers best, we choose to compete only with our yesterday, last week and previous months.
 
We always strive for excellence & give more than we take. We believe that our company culture will make people feel included in our company and we hope that many will join and collaborate with us.
 

Unique differentiator from competitors

We differentiate by having:
 
  • A mobile app which is always available: designing a platform for tomorrow to nurture all possibilities like 24/7 accessibility (notifications), measuring sensors (IoTs included) to improve communication and ease of use.   
 
  • Making a verified community where people can learn, share and be updated about new information. CHealth platform will cover many aspects of these processes to become Cancer Companion
 
  • Authentic information from research resources and health professionals (we collaborate with researchers and healthcare systems from day one.)

Business Model

Company revenue streams

Long-term plan (starting the 3rd year):
Marketing/R&D partnership with the pharmaceutical industry and healthcare organizations. In return for their knowledge gain they will support us financially by paying for analysis reports(starting from €100,000).
 
Mid-term revenue based financial demand:
 
  • Placing productive advertisement and marketing promotion on mobile for related healthcare institutes & clinics.
 
  • Confidential negotiations with 3 brands for logo sponsorship in each market is ongoing.
 
  • If needed; Affordable user (non-patient) subscriptions – only to cover costs between the 1-3 year. (1000 SEK /year – less than the cost of one coffee per week)
 

Product/service distribution

Through our collaboration partners in healthcare systems, CHealth will offer a platform to new patients via FREE registrations:
 
  • Registered to the app by their nurse (contact nurse / planner).
  • Support will be provided by researchers and specialized nurses.
