Study Presented at Texas Transplant Society Annual Meeting Demonstrates HealthTech Solutions' TXP ChatTM with Artificial Intelligence Could Predict Kidney Transplant Outcomes Significantly Better Than Traditional Methods

A poster presented at the Texas Transplant Society (TTS), "Better
Predictions of Kidney Transplant Outcomes with Artificial Intelligence
," found
that HealthTech Solutions' TXP ChatTM could significantly
improve predictions of kidney transplant outcomes compared to more
traditional methods of deceased donor organ assessment and potential
patient match. The abstract was presented by Kimberly Jacinto, DO,
General Surgery Resident at Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas, on
July 26 in San Antonio, Texas, and was honored as the best presentation
of the event with the 2018 Trinkle/Banowsky Abstract Competition Award.

The study, which was funded in part by a grant from the National
Institute of Health, set out to compare performance of traditional organ
and patient match assessment methods with a new method using a
provisional version of HealthTech Solutions' TXP Chat incorporating
artificial intelligence (AI). The study found that the artificial
intelligence method successfully predicted 126 percent more successful
Deceased Donor Kidney Transplants without increasing failure rate.

The authors concluded, "Clinical professionals require mobile and
real-time organ offer assessment tools without adding more redundant
phone calls, increasing productivity, and keeping everyone updated with
critical information. Implementing AI with TXP Chat™ may allow the
availability for prediction of graft function during live organ offers
and transplantation. Artificial Intelligence will change the way
professionals make decisions about whether to transplant kidneys into
specific patients during the real-time organ offering and allocation
processes."

Organ transplant is a complicated, time-sensitive process that relies on
numerous phone calls and faxes per donated organ. This inefficient
communication contributes to over 50 percent of available organs being
wasted when a significant portion could be transplanted; meanwhile, 22
patients die each day in the US waiting for a life-saving organ, over
120,000 people continue to wait for a major organ transplant, and the
average wait time is over five years.

Founded by Dalton Shaull and Eric Pahl, HealthTech Solutions, Inc. is a
secure communications technology provider focused initially on providing
solutions in organ transplantation. The company's first product, TXP ChatTM,
connects Organ Transplant Centers, Organ Procurement Organizations and
Clinicians and Coordinators through a secure HIPAA-compliant mobile
messaging and workflow app to simplify real-time clinical communication
and coordination when time matters.
