Problem Tech Solves

20+ Million children in the US suffer from chronic conditions ranging from Autism, Asthma, Heart Disease to Diabetes. However, care coordination today is supremely difficult due to the disjointed nature of healthcare delivery. Families have limited access to care support systems and providers struggle to devote resources for ongoing pediatric care management. As a consequence, long wait times, low treatment adherence and recurring hospital admissions are the norm today. Moreover, during Covid, most pediatric patients are struggling to get appropriate urgent/primary care access. Kiddo delivers a solution for this via a care coordination and RPM platform for managing chronic conditions in pediatrics. Kiddo helps to reduce the overall cost of healthcare delivery for pediatric patients by enabling patients to navigate the care system better, ensuring that lower cost options (e.g. Telemedicine) are utilized first and value based care can be delivered more efficiently by providers.

Tech Brief

Kiddo is a connected care platform for pediatrics (3+ years) with integrated remote patient monitoring, caregiver coaching, on demand telehealth and clinical decision support. Our solution is focused on chronic care kids requiring proactive and continuous care (e.g., Autism, Asthma, Diabetes, Congenital Heart Disease). The Kiddo remote monitoring system combines a smart band for children with a coaching app for parents. The band has 5 clinical grade sensors– heart rate, temperature, SPO2, perspiration and motion that send real time health data over Bluetooth. The Kiddo AI engine parses these metrics and provides predictive analytics on heart conditions, respiratory issues, stress conditions, and activity and sleep. The Kiddo mobile app allows parents and care givers to better understand their child’s daily health needs, track health reports and care protocols, while also receiving alerts and recommendations. The Kiddo platform is HIPAA, HL7 and FHIR compliant. It is backed by a secure blockchain and multi cloud-based data analytics engine that can seamlessly integrate into telehealth platforms, EMRs and clinician workflows, enabling a first of its kind integrated care management system for pediatrics. Patients can be guided to appropriate point of care options with further triaging while doctors and therapists can use real time data for better diagnosis, personalized treatment plans and remote clinical decisions.

Tech Differentiators

Kiddo is the only platform with the ability to work with the entire healthcare ecosystem (parent, child, insurance company, health care clinic and schools) to deliver the best health outcomes for a child. Kiddo enables at-home monitoring through actionable insights around key vitals (heart rate, temperature, SPO2, perspiration and motion), health conditions (e.g., cardiac, asthma, stress) and activity/sleep for children. The platform is HIPAA compliant and able to integrate with existing EHRs and telehealth services using standards such as HL7 and FHIR. With the Kiddo, parents can proactively understand what is happening with their children and what to do in the event of an illness. Kiddo guides families to the appropriate clinical care setting - not just providing where a patient should go, but also when. The result is a care coordination and remote monitoring tool that can reduce risk of hospital bounce backs, optimize health resource utilization, and promote compliance with treatment plans for pediatrics. At the same time, Kiddo allows providers to leverage technology for communication on treatment plans, virtual care provision and better support of patient adherence. As Kiddo is distributed through providers, care protocols and treatment plans can be incorporated directly into insights and alerts in the Kiddo app. The Kiddo experience thus helps caregivers and patients remain compliant and ahead of their medical concerns, reducing overall cost of care. Early intervention and proactive health management at home also reduces the emotional and physical impacts of illness on children.


Kiddo has had clinical validation and follows a 4-step validation process from algorithm validation to outcome validation with several partner organizations. Kiddo has previously partnered with organizations such as UC Davis, UCSF, USC, NYU and St Jude Children’s Hospital for validation and testing. Kiddo has also engaged on pilots with health systems such as Optum, Spectrum Health, Children’s Mercy Kansas, Children’s Hospital Orange County for further validation on use cases. Kiddo has delivered significant patient outcomes across care solutions through our validation processes. In the area of autism spectrum disorders, the Kiddo solution can deliver a 87% accuracy for classifying high or low mental health groups and over a 83% adherence rate. Kiddo can deliver a 70% adherence rate for kids with asthma with a 5x reduction in hospital admissions. Kiddo also enables over a 2x increase in early detection of cardiac disease. For providers and health systems, Kiddo delivers over a 10x ROI for new revenue generation while also enabling faster diagnosis and better resource utilization.
