About Virgo

Improving patient outcomes and clinical workflows in healthcare

We envision a world where technology powered by AI dramatically improves the quality of, and access to, healthcare.

To improve patient outcomes and clinical workflows in healthcare by developing automation and artificial intelligence tools for endoscopy.

Virgo provides the leading cloud video capture, management, and AI analysis platform for endoscopic medicine. Academic, integrated, and private practice healthcare providers use the Virgo platform to augment patient care through video-based research, training, and quality improvement  initiatives. 

Since launching, Virgo has helped physicians capture over 400,000 endoscopy procedure videos using industry-leading HIPAA, HITRUST, and SOC 2 compliant cloud service providers. Virgo also supports integrations with the leading electronic health records systems. 

In 2021, Virgo launched a suite of tools called VirgoTrials, which help pharmaceutical trial sponsors and their participating trial sites accelerate patient recruitment and shorten the overall enrollment period. 

Healthcare providers and pharmaceutical companies traditionally relied on images from endoscopy procedures – and had to manually examine them to gather valuable insights. Virgo provides rich video data from procedures and automatically analyzes it with smart AI detection. 

Endoscopy procedure data gathered and organized in the Virgo system helps providers improve clinical workflows, quality assurance, teaching, displaying work, and more. 

The Virgo system is integrated within clinical trial site workflows to cut down manual processing in candidate selection and central reading – significantly reducing trial delays. 

Virgo is specially designed to seamlessly accommodate current processes within healthcare organizations and clinical trial sites. Our specialists implement the system without causing any interruptions or changes to daily operations.  

Authorized users may access all endoscopy procedure video data in a single, easy-to-find cloud location. 

Virgo’s advanced AI works to eliminate human error within healthcare operations and clinical trials to bolster GI patient experiences. 

Enhance Research & Training

Virgo provides gastroenterologists with more accurate data to make research more precise, improve training protocols, and simplify the process of showcasing endoscopy work.

Augment Patient Recruiting

The lack of rich data and analysis creates large roadblocks in patient recruiting. Virgo’s AI system automates video capture to make these procedures quicker and more accurate.

Expedite Clinical Trials

Virgo’s advanced system delivers targeted data to pharmaceutical companies monitoring patient progress and trial sites conducting studies. The result accelerates clinical trials and expedites time-to-market.

Fuel Innovation

Virgo’s AI takes healthcare to a new, data-driven level of accuracy. The system incorporates rich insights into clinical workflows to improve accuracy and quality assurance across the board.

The Virgo founding team has deep expertise in Healthcare and Technology
