- Sanovation, Noa Stemmer-Holtz
Noa Stemmer-Holtz is working in marketing and research for the Swiss start-up Sanovation AG. Her background is a wild mix of studies in sociology, communication and design. What actually brought her to Sanovation was the masters’ thesis in the field of visualizing pain quality and since then she passionately embraces every task at hand to improve and promote the start-up and its mobile health products.
About her talk: The Swiss start-up Sanovation AG develops the electronic pain diary CatchMyPain. The CatchMyPain app allows patients to visualize and monitor their pain by creating detailed drawings and by tracking other relevant information. It helps to understand the pain, explain it and evaluate treatment success. Furthermore, based on the diaries, groups of similar patients are identified. This enables pain sufferers to learn from others who have the same problem.
