Solution Pitch 

The Problem

Globally, about 750 million people have Asthma, COPD, Post TB Lung Impairment and more than 75% of these cases are undiagnosed, causing huge economic burdens and premature deaths. Pulmonary function (PFT) test costs, unavailability of trained technicians, and absence of pulmonologists are major factors for late or missing diagnosis at the primary care level.

The Solution

Briota's solution SAVE™ (Screening Assisted Virtually and Early), is an affordable and scalable alternative to expensive Pulmonary Function Tests mostly performed in secondary or tertiary care settings. Briota's innovative No Contact AI solution "PFT In A Box™" - Pulmonary Function Test is India's first and only Point of Care Diagnostics with Spirometer, Impulse Oscillometer and GOLD standard Clinical Diagnostic Support System. 

Apart from COPD and Asthma, Project SAVE™ using Briota's unique point of care AI first platform SURAKSHA (Save) is now expanded to cover other difficult to diagnose conditions in primary healthcare settings. These conditions include Cardiometabolic diseases and Common cancers - Lungs, Breast and Oral


  • Project SAVE™ has, to date, helped 55,000 patients in various states in India who were assisted by SAVE™ technology of early screening, diagnosis and escalation for chronic respiratory conditions including Covid, Asthma, COPD and post TB lung impairment.

Market Opportunity

The organization’s primary focus is in India followed by other countries in Asia and Africa. As part of the National Program on NCD, the SAVE™ solution has a potential market value of  $500 million in primary care settings.

Similar and larger markets in primary care exist in Asia and Africa and the team has presented its solution in Bangladesh, Nepal, and the Philippines.
