The Belgian pharma company worked with Verint Systems to create the PD Coach app. Belgian biopharma company UCB has tapped customer engagement company Verint Systems to create an app for patients with Parkinson’s disease. The app is called PD Coach and includes an AI assistant named April which can communicate with users either by text or speech.At launch, the app will support journaling and symptoms tracking. April is programmed with a wealth of Parkinson’s-specific information, and is designed to be able to communicate with Parkinson’s patients through speech and dexterity challenges.”Our PD Coach, April, offers a vital support system to people living with and caring for those with Parkinsons disease, leveraging AI technology to provide ongoing, personalized support and access to the resources they need, Mike Davis, head of UCBs US Neurology Patient Value Unit, said in a statement. We designed the PD Coach to address specific challenges that Parkinsons patients and their caregivers may face including its unique ability to learn and adjust to language and vocabulary for patients with dexterity and speech issues. With insights from patients on the challenges they face with disease management, April was created as more than a resource to offer information. April is designed to build a relationship with the patient and help deliver what patients value when it comes to their care.
