SAN FRANCISCO, CA – NOV 2, 2018 - SCA Robotics, an early stage, commercial Precision Analytics company, developing artificial intelligence (AI) diagnostic solutions proven to improve the identification, prediction, and treatment of patients with cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, made its debut at the annual ADA Leaders Forum Healthtech Showcase.
SCA Robotics founder and CEO Rob Rao remarked, “It is sincerely an honor for us to take part in this year's prestigious event, which has been a long-standing tradition for both the ADA and the Silicon Valley community."
Each year the American Diabetes Association® (ADA) invites life science leaders, business professionals, angel investors, and venture capitalists to come together. The Leaders Forum HealthTech Showcase connects investors and industry experts to healthcare startup companies while benefitting the ADA's mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
Mr. Rao continued and said, "Thanks to the ADA, this was a perfect occasion for SCA to prove to the health and investment community exactly how we make artificial intelligence and machine learning work for health care. In addition to eliminating the most difficult challenges in diabetic medicine, we have proven our ability to determine cancer types, make predictions for brain tumors, and valve replacements needed in the heart.”
Along with a select group of 30 health and technology companies, SCA was invited to demonstrate its proven artificial intelligence solutions utilizing machine learning to predict hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia in patients.
SCA develops diagnostic and clinical analysis solutions designed to investigate and predict patient outcomes based on clinical and computer imaging data ( X-rays, CT scans, Nuclear medicine scans, MRI scans, Ultrasound) with amazing success.
Rob commented further, “The SCA Robotics team is extremely proud of what it has accomplished. Looking forward we are expanding our AI expertise beyond early detection and management of diabetes, and cancer, but also to determine the probability of a valve replacement event in the heart, also known as TAVI prediction."

About the American Diabetes Association
Approximately every 21 seconds, someone in the United States is diagnosed with diabetes. Nearly half of the American adult population has diabetes or prediabetes, and more than 30 million adults and children are living with the disease. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is the nation's leading voluntary health organization on a mission to prevent and cure diabetes, as well as improve the lives of all people affected by the disease. For nearly 80 years, the ADA has driven discovery by funding research to treat, manage and prevent all types of diabetes, while working relentlessly for a cure. Magnifying the urgency of this epidemic, the ADA works to safeguard policies and programs that protect people with the illness, those at risk of developing diabetes and the health care professionals who serve them by initiating programs, advocacy and education efforts that can lead to improved health outcomes and quality of life.
