Our Mission

'Helping people to understand & take control of their health'

The global problem

The world’s population is growing and we are living longer. As a result, the chance of suffering from long term illness is greater than ever. Healthcare services around the world are struggling to meet the needs and demands of the 21st Century.

Addressing the problem

Addressing the problem

Cognitant is changing how people interact with healthcare services.

We need the tools to manage our own health in order to avoid unnecessary complications and reduce the impact of ill health. To do that we need to be better informed about our health, diseases and treatment. Everyone has access to an overwhelming volume of information online, but how do we know what information to trust?

“Communication of accurate information to the public is essential to minimise and tackle the impact of chronic disease through empowering people affected, enabling them to have a greater role in decisions about their care and assisting them with self-management of their condition”

What we do

Cognitant enables people to understand their health and treatment in two ways:

Health information in 3D

Health information in 3D

Cognitant produces visual and interactive health information in 3D for patients to view on their own smartphones, tablets, computers or using virtual reality headsets (at home or in the clinic). These 3D experiences answer questions such as “what causes my condition?”, “how does this medicine work?” and “how can I avoid complications?” and are easy for people of all ages and backgrounds to understand. The ability to transport people into a virtual world means that complex information can be visualised and explained clearly and effectively.

We work with patients, doctors and healthcare professionals to develop information and experiences that enable them to make the most of each consultation and for patients to make informed decisions about their own health.


Trusted information recommended by your doctor

Healthinote is a platform that enables doctors and other healthcare professionals to prescribe information to patients simply and quickly. Whether it’s a face to face or virtual consultation, clinicians can provide relevant health information at the point of care to help patients to take more control of their health. Patients know that the information is credible and personalised to them.

Healthinote is a free service for doctors and patients and is funded by partners including patient groups, health insurers and health industry. Launching in the UK in June 2019, Healthinote provides:

  • 1,000 Health A-Z topics
  • Additional content from partners
  • An increasing number of 3D experiences across a range of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma and diabetes.

The combination of our 3D content and Healthinote provides a very powerful service for improving knowledge and understanding about health. Empowering people to take control of their health.
