After 15 years of clinical practice and a few years as an instructor at CLESS*, Jean-Christophe Cejka, an anaesthetist at the Hospices Civils de Lyon, regrets the inevitability of human errors in care and the resulting abyssal consequences in terms of costs and human lives.
He starts considering the creation of a digital assistant to overcome these shortcomings.http://cless.univ-lyon1.fr
After having matured his project, Jean-Christophe Cejka meets the managers of Pulsalys*, the SATT** of Lyon. Convinced by his approach, they agree to accompany him.
The incubator then funds the development of a mobile tool that will become the first version of MAX.https://www.pulsalys.fr ** Société d'Accélération du Transfert de Technologies
MAX is born
Jean-Christophe Cejka calls on the technical expertise of AXOPEN*, a Lyon-based ESN**, to design and develop the first version of MAX for iOS.
The machine is launched: the first screens arrive, then the first words, and MAX is born!https://www.axopen.com ** Entreprise de Services du Numérique
The first steps
Assigned to medical doctoral students, MAX makes his first experiences within the CLESS. This will lead to a first thesis in anaesthesia-resuscitation, the results of which will be published at the SFAR* congress, as well as in the very serious BJA**, the best anaesthesia journal in the world.
Meanwhile, developments continue: new features on the mobile app, and a web editor to create procedures.https://sfar.org ** British Journal of Anaesthesia, https://bjanaesthesia.org
Things are accelerating: the web editor is welcoming new tools, and two other theses are being conducted on MAX. The SFAR is awarding him its Emergency Medicine Prize ; at the BPI*, he's awarded the French Tech prize.
By the end of the year, Jean-Christophe Cejka founds the company MEDAE.https://www.bpifrance.fr
A new article in the BJA, new theses... the success is confirmed, the team is growing, and MEDAE puts online its new collaborative platform.
In September, the marketing begins:
