ToLife is providing innovative technological solutions for the healthcare market. Leonardo Lima de Carvalho and his company have created an innovative system that solves these inefficiencies by automating the triage process based on patients’ risk rating.

Leonardo does not come from a traditional healthcare background, but he has always been an entrepreneur at heart. He studied Computer Science at Pontífica Universidade Católica de Minas Gerais. After receiving his undergraduate degree in Software Engineering at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. After working at some of the biggest software manufacturers and telecommunication companies in Brazil, and teaching for 13 years, he was appointed to become the public entrepreneur of Minas Gerais. His mandate was to manage the implementation of the Manchester Protocol and network care practices in the state’s hospitals.

In pursuing this mission, Leonardo became acquainted with patient care problems. In 2009 he left the government to start ToLife to address the challenges he was unable to solve while in the public sector. It was quickly recognized for its innovation and won a grant from FINEP.

ToLife’s integrated system manages the flow of patient care in emergency units based on a patient’s risk factors and the capacity of the care centers in the surrounding areas. It is composed for three parts: the hardware, the software, and support from ToLife’s service center. As the only integrated triage and network care solution on the market, ToLife has a substantial first mover advantage that it has already begun to capitalize on.
