VIKAND and Riverr forge srategic partnership

VIKAND and Riverr forge srategic partnership

(Posted on 31/05/24)

VIKAND, the global leader in maritime healthcare, and Riverr, a pioneering AI deeptech start-up based in Singapore, join forces to revolutionize healthcare management for millions of seafarers worldwide, leveraging advanced AI and machine learning to unlock valuable healthcare data and significantly improve onboard health and safety.

VIKAND's data management system will be enhanced by integrating key functionalities from Riverr's AI-powered healthcare platform, including Riverr Care Studio and Riverr AI Health Companion. This integration will empower a personalized approach to seafarer healthcare. By analysing individual health data, Riverr AI can identify potential health risks early on. This allows for preventative measures and interventions, ultimately leading to fewer medical emergencies and improved crew well-being. This proactive approach to healthcare not only benefits seafarers by ensuring their well-being at sea, but also maritime operators. Each forecast will utilize specific healthcare data to identify and explain the risks faced by crew members, enabling timely and targeted interventions.

Furthermore, the partnership offers significant cost benefits for maritime operators. Riverr's AI technology can predict potential health crises before they occur, leading to fewer costly medical evacuations and reduced resource utilization. This translates to substantial financial savings for shipping companies.

The partnership also addresses the crucial issue of mental health in the maritime industry. Early identification of mental health risks through AI analysis, combined with VIKAND's expertise, can lead to timely interventions and access to mental health resources. This improves crew morale and reduces the risk of mental health emergencies at sea.

One of the standout features of Riverr’s platform is its ability to predict the risk of medical events that could lead to repatriation, a significant concern for maritime operators. By identifying potential health crises before they occur, VIKAND and Riverr holds the potential to prevent costly medical events and improve the overall safety and well-being of seafarers.

“Partnering with Riverr allows us to take a significant step forward in advancing health equity and sustainability in the maritime industry,” said Peter Hult, CEO of VIKAND. “With Riverr’s Bedrock platform, we enhance health outcomes for seafarers while driving social sustainability practices by providing comprehensive insights into workforce health.”

Riverr CEO & Founder Kristina Lynge added, "At Riverr, we are deeply committed to advancing social sustainability and global health equity through innovative solutions and partnerships. Our partnership will enable corporations with insights into their workforce health. By leveraging our safe technology platform, which analyses de-identified data, we are not only de-risk the management of health data but also predict health risks. Partnering with VIKAND allows us to extend these benefits to the maritime industry, ensuring seafarers receive proactive, personalized care and organisations can make informed decisions."
