As a former medic, Nayan Kalnad, saw firsthand how digital was going to transform a patient’s lived experience of their condition.
As a serial software entrepreneur, Neeraj Apte had the expertise required to harness technology to maximise its impact.
It was this core knowledge, empathy for the patient and belief that digital would shape the future of health that led to Avegen.
It still drives us today.
In response to client demand and growing expertise, in 2022 we shifted to working in cross-functional squads focused on 4 key indication areas – Mental Health, Cardiovascular, Infectious Diseases and Maternal Health.
This structure allows us to work even more closely with our clients, deepening our understanding of the patient’s lived experience of their long term condition. HealthMachine™ remains condition agnostic and able to support the full spectrum of DHPs, but these specialisms allow us to move faster for our clients.
We have developed a range of hyper-relevant, reusable modules, content and insights that deliver meaningful user engagement and lasting behaviour change for all long term conditions.
Our squads are structured to maximise both experience and expertise. They are multi-disciplinary, composed of designers, developers, QA and data engineers, with implementation at their core and the user as their focus. They work collaboratively and efficiently, sharing the regulatory expertise and human resource support that sits at Avegen’s core.
From day 1 Avegen’s culture has been flat. We work as a team, collaboratively, supporting each other to meet new challenges and deliver exemplary work for our loyal clients. Every employee is encouraged tod learn, grow and speak up for the user at the heart of our products.
This collaborative team spirit is embodied by
