Emitac-GoCheck Partnership for an AI-Powered Vision Screening App for Children


Emitac Healthcare Solutions announced its partnership with the U.S. digital health company GoCheck to bring to the UAE a smartphone-enabled, integrated vision screening application for the detection of vision abnormalities in children.

Emitac Healthcare said in a statement that the distribution partnership will strengthen its portfolio of cutting-edge screening applications and add value to its vision and mission to transform care delivery through cost-effective digital technologies.

“Our partnership with GoCheck will enable us to reinforce the company’s mission to offer clinical innovation through new technology. Partnering with GoCheck will bring value and strength to the pediatric healthcare sector,” said Mr. Mohd Kenanah, CEO of Emitac Healthcare Solutions.

GoCheck Kids is used by over 6,500 pediatric care teams in the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East as part of the routine health checkup for children and in vision screening programs conducted within primary care centers and schools.

Kevon Saber, Chief Executive Officer of GoCheck said, “Smart technologies and an IOS modern operating system help pediatric healthcare providers detect diseases in advance.”

An office release claimed, “the use of photo screeners is recommended by various medical societies including the American Academy of Pediatrics because traditional vision screening methods such as Snellen charts have zero positive predictive value among pre-school children.”
