Taking care of what’s most important
If the greatest wealth is health, then a company’s greatest asset is a healthy workforce. Healthy people make happy people, and happy people make productive, successful employees.
However, keeping employees healthy can be an ongoing and costly challenge. Cardiovascular disease is currently the leading cause of death not just in South Africa, but globally, killing more than 17 million people per year. Hypertension affects up to 25% of urban adults in sub-Saharan Africa, and valvular heart disease has a 20 000% incidence risk in people over 60. Not to mention the ever-present threat that conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, HIV and TB pose as well.
Taking these risk factors into account, it’s easy to see just how high the cost of poor health can be, not just to employees, but to companies as a whole. That’s why at Stone Three, we’ve made employee health our business, using AI and computer-assisted diagnostics to detect and prevent acute health conditions, saving not just money, but lives in the process.
In order to care for the health of your employees and the health of your business, our goals at Stone Three are simple:
- To focus on heart health, as well as solutions for diabetes and respiratory conditions
- To help support primary caregivers such as doctors, nurses and EMTs
- To connect patients with the quality medical care they need
- To help people live healthier, happier, more productive lives
Thanks to years of experience in the healthcare industry, a strong technical team, and intellectual property like computer-aided diagnostics and AI augmentation, our range of digital healthcare solutions can help provide better value to your company, and a better quality of life to your employees.
Connecting employees with quality healthcare can often be a challenge, particularly in remote or rural areas. That’s where TeleSensiTM comes in – a stethoscope streaming service that allows doctors and other healthcare professionals to listen to chest, lung and bowel sounds via a web app, and provide an instant medical diagnosis with no referrals and no waiting. It’s computer-assisted diagnostics in action, and it’s the future of telehealth. Read more
Being able to diagnose underlying heart conditions is key when it comes to detecting and preventing cardiovascular disease. It’s here that TeleSensiTMCARDIAC is so valuable – the world’s first artificial intelligence tool that uses stethoscopes to remotely detect up to 15 heart conditions, and allows healthcare providers and clinics to screen your employees no matter where in the country they may be. In this way TeleSensiTMCARDIAC is more than a tool – it’s a powerful weapon in the fight against cardiovascular disease, and it’s one that can have a significant impact both on your employees’ quality of life, and on your company’s continued productivity and success.

Occupational health and health risk assessments are vital in diagnosing employee health conditions – and they’re a standard health and safety requirement as well. Developed by Stone Three, the Pathways platform allows doctors and nurses to conduct remote telehealth consults with your employees, helping to determine their health and their ability to perform at their best, while connecting them with the quality healthcare they deserve, wherever they are.

In addition to supporting patients, Stone Three supports doctors as well, through the Intelligent Care System, or ICS. With the help of this healthcare platform, doctors are able to work together in teams and consortiums to deliver more value and more care to patients than ever before. Read more
At our core, our primal need as humans is to be healthy and to survive. Which is why at Stone Three, we’re not just about algorithms – we’re about so much more. We’re about smart solutions that help to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. We’re about helping employees to be happier, healthier people. We’re about giving employers confidence in a productive, capable workforce. And we’re about decreasing heavy machinery risks, and health insurance and disability costs at the same time.
Because it’s more than simply technology that makes it easier to deliver quality healthcare, and easier to live a healthier life. It’s technology with heart.
Take a look at how our healthcare products are helping to add value throughout the industry.
“This product will hold up well against any foreseen competitors,” she said. “It has done well over the past year inside the GPT network, and I think that it will only become stronger as it becomes more widely used.”
“The process is streamlined so that a provider can sign into the platform and be listening to a patient’s heartbeat in less than sixty seconds,” Johnson said, “and because it’s web-based, it can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection.”
For TeleSensiTM, making the Becker’s Hospital Review list of ‘Top 250 Telehealth Companies to Know’ is quite an honour.
The telehealth companies featured on this list range from video conferencing and connection to wearable data gathering and reporting technologies and platforms.
The list is dominated by industry giants, and the most innovative and successful telehealth products on the market today.
GPT’s network of caregivers and its technology gave Tift Regional the ability to connect to nursing homes, school clinics, emergency rooms, stroke teams, specialised wound care teams and advanced critical care teams hundreds of miles away from its rural location in South Georgia.
“I like to say the miracle of telehealth is that it gives us the ability to erase time and distance,” Robbins said. “Our patients benefit with virtually no travel time or expenses, decreased time waiting for an appointment, reduced medical costs, and extra value to the patient encounter and extended access to consultations with specialists not ordered in their area and usually hundreds of miles away.”
The partnership with GPT also allows Tift Regional’s employed physicians to increase revenue because they can see patients outside their area, reducing missed appointments, and giving them the tools to treat more patients over time and have better patient follow-ups that improve outcomes, which also cuts down on readmissions, he added.
