About us

The novel approaches and the complementary set of technologies devised by A3 have successfully overcome the real-life challenges (low bandwidth, unreliable networks, low skills, harsh operating environments, economic constraints, and the need for a high degree of usability) present in emerging and even advanced markets. In case of life threatening conditions, the above characteristics are not just “nice to have” but an absolute necessity. In addition, these solutions need to integrate well with the real-life medical, social and economic conditions. These stringent solution characteristics have actually been addressed by A3. The solutions have been cleverly product-engineered with a right set of features and subtleties. This was made possible in part because of the fresh thinking brought forth by A3. In addition A3 was able to realize its solution vision because of the state-of-art technologies it has developed, supported in part by the R & D capabilities of its academic collaborations with premier technology institute in India.

A3 innovations have not only brought tremendous clinical efficiencies for medical practitioners but they have also proven their efficacy on thousands of patients who have benefited with its diagnosis in critical, emergency and life threatening conditions.

A3 solutions have been proven in a diverse range of application scenarios and as expected have actually saved hundreds of lives. This track record is steadily helping us realize the corporate vision “TOWARD SAVING A MILLION LIVES” globally!
