For every treatment there should be a Pathmate Coach guiding and supporting people beyond episodic healthcare visits.
Pathmate Technologies was founded in 2017 as a spin-off of the Center for Digital Health Interventions C4DHI, a common initiative of ETH Zürich and the University of St.Gallen. The technology of our «Digital Health Coach» is based on several years of research at the C4DHI. Various publications have shown the positive effects of the use of a digital coach on behavior and therapies.
