About Edocate

Chronic disease is responsible for over 70% of deaths worldwide and over 86% of healthcare spending. At Edocate, we believe technology can help alleviate the growing burden of chronic disease on patients and health systems by enhancing the efficacy of professional education.

Our Virtual Patient Simulation Platform is dedicated to chronic disease management and to the effort of healthcare practitioners to improve their long-term care skills. The platform also offers lower instructional costs and provides robust objective data analysis. Edocate simulates disease progression and the influence of diagnostic and therapeutic decisions on this process, all while assessing guideline compliance and proper use of medication.
