Suquino’s vision and mission to provide the answer to these worldwide challenges is the missing link in the evolution of telehealthcare. Derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Suquino’, which means “free of suffering,” the company offers a revolutionary, personalized, and holistic AI-powered ubiquitous platform, Saffron, that integrates with multiple medical devices and connects the patients, physicians, and caregivers under a single umbrella establishing community-based long-term care. “With Saffron, the patient and the caregiver can connect anywhere, anytime and this provides for systematic proactive care and a huge psychological relief, and we are getting a lot of traction wherever we go,” extols Ravi Amble, president and CEO of Suquino.
Suquino, Microsoft, and Advantech have partnered to give Saffron the power of Azure and state-of-the-art embedded IoT equipment to transform healthcare. Suquino’s Saffron software integrated on Advantech’s POC-W243, a fanless medical-grade computer with Intel® Core™ i7 6th generation processor, mounted on Advantech’s AMiS-50 mobile medical cart, and connected to Microsoft’s Azure provides an end-to-end healthcare solution to revolutionize the medical IoT segment.
The intelligence within Saffron is powered by its AI Engine— Ginger, which uses proprietary algorithms to process large datasets and generate predictive and clinical analytics of the patient. With these datasets, the physician can employ the right support to the right patient. “With Ginger, we are building a decision support system not a decision-making system and that is one of our key differentiating factors,” states Amble.

Saffron also has an inbuilt customized EMR—Saffron EMR— that collectively captures the multi-media patient data of every session and records it in a patient chart (EHR), which can be integrated with other leading EMR solutions. These datasets can come in handy for physicians when dealing with similar scenarios. For instance, one of Suquino’s employees diagnosed with breast cancer was unable to use her right hand properly after chemotherapy. She consulted multiple physicians and finally, a gastroenterologist ordered a gastrointestinal scan, where they found calcium deposits in the gallbladder due to chemotherapy. Ginger reads these anonymized patient case studies as a “medical encyclopedia” to aid doctors in synthesizing similar useful medical cases, patient information and outcomes into a seamless medical decision supporting system.
“Our ultimate aim with Saffron is to be a leader in the healthcare sector transforming telehealth as a lifestyle for long-term care,” concludes Amble.
