Developed as a global initiative in partnership with Medicus AI, a digital healthcare company working with diagnostic labs, clinic, the app is available on iOS and is coming soon to Android.

Available globally, CoVive works to relieve pressure on healthcare systems to help ‘flatten the curve’. By empowering users with more clarity and information about their health, with features for self-assessment, test interpretation, and self-monitoring, the app acts as a reassuring companion and source of reliable information and proposed next steps for users.

“As a lab, we understand the unprecedented pressures on healthcare systems associated with an outbreak, from every angle, and in every city around the world working to manage these new and alarming pressures. Prioritising clear and meaningful communication with patients has always driven our innovation at BioneXt, and we saw an opportunity to create a service that could be useful to patients and to healthcare providers everywhere. By providing patients with reliable information and actionable steps, the app works to support all stakeholders in the ecosystem,” said Dr Jean-Luc Dourson, CEO and Founder, BioneXt LAB.

“In a pandemic, people feel scared and have a heightened tendency to panic. The early weeks of the COVID-19 outbreak brought with it an avalanche of misinformation and much uncertainty and very quickly we worked with BioneXt to discuss how we could support and build something useful and meaningful for users. CoVive comes from what we do naturally at Medicus, in providing personalised interpretation and intuitive communication, so this is where we focused the value we could create for CoVive users,” said Dr Baher Al Hakim, CEO, Medicus AI.

From its HQ in Luxembourg, BioneXt worked closely with Medicus AI to customise and localise CoVive to multiple countries, and in multiple languages, always supported by official local guidelines and local sources to provide relevant and up-to-date information that is in line with each country’s guidelines, contact information, and recommendations.

CoVive is available to download for free on iOS and is coming soon to Android. In its initial phase, CoVive is available in English, French, German, Portuguese, Greek, and Arabic.
