KPJ Healthcare Berhad (“KPJ Healthcare” or the “Group”) through its premier educational institution, KPJ Healthcare University ("KPJU"), entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) with Trusx Malaysia Sdn Bhd (“Trustr”), a global digital health organisation, in a transformative step towards revolutionising healthcare.

The collaboration will focus on leveraging Trustr's innovative AI-driven digital health suite including its health wallet and non-invasive vitals and biomarkers measurement tool which utilises facial scanning technology to extract vital health information without invasive procedures or blood samples. This technology has wide-ranging applications, including early disease detection, remote health monitoring, and non-communicable disease (NCD) management. Once technology validations are completed in KPJU, the Group intends to pilot the application of this technology to patients via digital channels and retail facilities.

The MoU signing ceremony was attended by key representatives from KPJ Healthcare, KPJU and Trustr including Dr. Nik Fawaz Nik Abdul Aziz, Chief Operating Officer (Group Allied and Retail Health Operations) of KPJ Healthcare; Vidyasagar Gudapati, Chief Technology Officer of Trusx Plus (Trustr); Datuk Dr. Senasi, Chairman of Trusx Malaysia (Trustr); Ananth Subramanian, Vice Chairman and Global CEO of Trusxplus Inc (Trustr), USA and Dr. Mizarina Abu Bakar, Chief Executive Officer of KPJU.

Chin Keat Chyuan, President and Managing Director of KPJ Healthcare expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration, “I am truly excited by the outstanding efforts by KPJ Healthcare and KPJU in exploring future healthcare technologies and modalities. This collaboration represents a significant step forward towards integrating KPJ and KPJU as part of our planning in creating Malaysia's first private Academic Health System.”

"KPJ is actively redefining the concept of patient-centricity in today's rapidly evolving, technology-driven landscape. This partnership marks a significant step in that journey, driven by a shared commitment to harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to empower individuals in proactively managing their health and well-being. Collaborating with Trustr, our aim is to revolutionize healthcare delivery and elevate patient outcomes to new heights," he added.

Ananth Subramanian commented on the collaboration, “We are excited about the potential of this partnership to drive innovation in healthcare. Trustr's AI-driven vitals and biometric measurement tool and digital health wallet represents a paradigm shift in how individuals proactively monitor and manage their health.”

Dr. Ahmad Syahid Mohd Fadzil, Lead Researcher for the project and technology evaluator at KPJU, commented, “At KPJ Healthcare University, we are committed to optimising patient care through innovative technologies and evidence-based practices. Our collaboration with industry leaders like Trustr enables us to harness cutting-edge solutions and drive impactful outcomes in healthcare delivery.”

This partnership underscores KPJU’s commitment to leading AI research and innovation in healthcare. By integrating intelligence and technology, KPJU aims to create a future-ready healthcare system that prioritises patient care and wellbeing.
