NEW YORK, February 10, 2020 – TransPerfect, the world’s largest provider of language and technology solutions for global business, today announced that Catalia Health has selected TransPerfect DataForce to expand the language capabilities of Mabu, Catalia Health’s robotic wellness coach powered by artificial intelligence.

Catalia Health is a patient care management company that provides an artificially intelligent patient engagement tool using its cloud-based Mabu Care Insights Platform. Mabu provides personalized care by speaking with patients on a daily basis to track symptoms, medication habits, and more. Mabu then delivers detailed data and insights to clinicians to help human caregivers initiate timely and appropriate patient contact. To expand its patient reach, Catalia Health decided to launch a Spanish version of Mabu in support of a patient-reported outcome (PRO) project for a major pharmaceutical client.

To optimize Mabu’s language capabilities, Catalia Health selected TransPerfect and its DataForce division, which specializes in breaking language barriers in artificial intelligence through data collection, annotation, and chatbot adaptation. With experienced computational linguists, a global network of linguistic and data experts, and coverage for over 200 languages, TransPerfect DataForce is enabling a significantly larger patient and customer population to access Mabu.

“One of our core goals at Catalia Health is to enhance the often lacking communication between patients and their care teams,” said Cory Kidd, founder and CEO of Catalia Health. “By making Mabu bilingual, we’re able to grow the number of patients we can support and, ultimately, help improve even more health outcomes.”

TransPerfect President and CEO Phil Shawe stated, “The potential for AI technology in healthcare applications is significant. We are excited to work with Catalia Health to improve their users’ access to top-quality treatment.”
