About Dyania Health

Dyania Health is a venture-backed company founded in 2019 which has developed Synapsis AI, an end-to-end system that combines a medically pre-adapted LLM with a physician-driven algorithmic reasoning engine to understand and assess clinical characteristics in electronic medical records. Synapsis AI is designed for installation within the healthcare system's computing environment or on healthcare system private clouds to automate the process of manual chart review of EMRs, without removing any data from the healthcare system. Synapsis AI completes pre-screening on both unstructured and structured patient data, and deploys medical logic with temporal sensitivity to match dynamically changing patient characteristics with complex clinical trial criteria during the exact window of time that a given EMR may qualify for study protocol criteria.
