Belong.Life, a global healthtech company, has launched Dave, a real-time conversational AI mentor for cancer patients and their caregivers. Dave is accessible through Belong’s “Beating Cancer Together” app, offering instant and tailored information to individuals dealing with cancer.
The AI mentor is built using machine learning (ML), LLM classification, and Natural Language Processing (NLP), trained on vast data sets compiled from years of patient-doctor and patient-to-patient interactions on the “Beating Cancer Together” app.
Dave is equipped with a comprehensive understanding of the cancer journey, enabling it to provide precise and empathetic responses to the challenges faced by cancer patients. It also possesses the ability to remember past conversations, allowing continuous communication across various chat sessions.
Dave is available at no cost to patients through the “Beating Cancer Together” app, where they can also connect with other patients and cancer care professionals. Additionally, Belong offers Dave as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution for hospitals, care providers, and patient support programs. This allows them to customize the mentor’s characteristics and expertise to suit their unique needs.
With nearly two million new cancer cases expected in the U.S. in 2023, Dave’s instant and reliable support could make a significant difference in the delivery of cancer care.
