As our special January 2024 cover story, we chat with Dr. Anmol Kapoor founder of Calgary-based healthcare technology research company BioAro, about his future-is-now approach to healthcare. By way of studying and empowering one’s health knowledge through accessibility Dr. Kapoor brings to the forefront one of the most advanced technological healthcare systems all designed so that you can take full control of your health and wellness.
Yes, modern technology has indeed revolutionized the way we diagnose, treat, and cure diseases. However, when it comes to looking after your well-being or that of your loved one, accessibility to quality medical care is paramount. BioAro, a Calgary-based healthcare technology research company stands apart from the rest with its cutting-edge technology and humanitarian approach in the healthcare industry.
BioAro was founded in 2021 by Dr. Anmol Kapoor in 2021, specializing in genomics, precision health, pharmacogenetics, nutrigenomics, artificial intelligence, blockchain, genetic counseling, and sequencing. Dr. Kapoor boasts experience in genomics and cardiology and is known as an entrepreneur, philanthropist, humanitarian, innovator, and founder of many successful healthcare ventures.
When it comes to the healthcare space Dr. Kapoor has invaluable experience across various sectors including advanced healthcare clinics, diagnostic centers, testing facilities, research labs, and sports genomics platforms.
“In founding BioAro, I envisioned a future where health is not just a privilege but a fundamental right, a vision born out of a deep emotional connection to the countless individuals who, for far too long, have been denied the fair and personalized healthcare they deserve,” noted Dr. Anmol Kapoor. “At the heart of our mission lies the belief that genomics is the key to unlocking a new era of Precision Health, extending health span, and enhancing longevity. It’s not just about treating diseases; it’s about understanding the unique genetic blueprints of each individual to provide truly personalized and effective care.”
Dr. Kapoor continues, “BioAro is not just a company; it’s a commitment to a future where healthcare is a beacon of equity and empowerment illuminating the path towards a healthier and longer life for everyone. In the realm of genomics, we find the power to rewrite the narrative of healthcare, ensuring that no one is left behind in the pursuit of well-being. BioAro stands as a testament to the belief that by harnessing the precision of genomic-based healthcare, we can bridge the gap between unmet needs and personalized solutions, creating a future where health is not just a destination but a journey of thriving vitality for all. ”
BioAro’s mission is simple: to democratize access to healthcare. So that everyone in need that is economically viable and readily attainable. As part of this mission, BioAro offers advanced facilities for genome sequencing, targeted panels, cancer sequencing, whole genome sequencing, and microbiome sequencing, ensuring affordability and accessibility. The philosophy of ensuring world-class services emphasizing real-time results sets the company apart from its competitors. Leveraging modern technology, BioAro strives to empower people irrespective of their location and financial status to access advanced healthcare services.
Acknowledging the end of the evidence-based healthcare era and the emergence of precision health, BioAro embraces the shift with its proprietary genomically-tailored healthcare products and services. Identifying the importance of genetic factors in diagnosing and treating certain diseases, BioAro holds the perspective that all individuals are entitled to obtain their distinct genetic data. To serve that purpose, the company facilitates affordable genome sequencing for individuals to determine their unique health features. This enables everyone to customize their treatments to the most suitable and effective for each. This also helps individuals to foresee the side effects and reactions of certain medicines and helps them reduce their impact.
The company’s mantra states that one should be the “CEO” of their health. This is done by examining your genes as your genes include all the information you need which creates a full picture of your health. BioAro offers genetic and microbiome testing, thereby “helping provide insights into a person’s health, which were previously out of reach.” This then shifts the power back to the person so that they can “understand their inherited and acquired health risks, such as potential diseases, health conditions, pharmacogenomic profiling, and nutrition parameters” so that the everyday person is able “to make decisions about their personal health.”
Dr. Kapoor and the team at BioAro calls this “precision health” and is borne out of their unwavering commitment to eliminating a multitude of procedures which are usually part of the long and often stress-inducing process of diagnosis and treatment of certain diseases. By Prescribing treatment based on the individual’s unique health features it avoids wasting valuable resources, time, and money. BioAro also provides people with customized wellness coaching programs by analyzing their microbiomes.
“At BioAro, we are pioneering a revolution in healthcare where each individual is not just a patient, but a unique and valued life story, adds Dr. Kapoor. “Our commitment goes beyond medicine; it extends to the profound belief that personalized and accessible healthcare is not a luxury but a fundamental human right. In the mosaic of genomics, we decipher the intricacies of each person’s health, offering a tailored roadmap for well-being that transcends the one-size-fits-all approach. BioAro is not merely a provider; it’s a bridge to a future where healthcare is not a distant concept but an intimately personalized experience, ensuring that everyone, regardless of background or circumstance, can access the transformative power of precision health on their journey to a longer, healthier, and more fulfilling life.”
And this is just the beginning. BioAro’s vision to leverage the possibilities of genomics for the well-being of humanity, has the potential to expand into the larger healthcare space including sports genomics, targeted cardiac panels, gut health clinics. With an aim to expand its service to the sports industry, the company develops partnerships with well-known coaches and athletes. This enables athletes when armed with such detailed genometric information coaches and athletes can customize programs including mental health programs, and diet and exercise plans.
With all these future-friendly plans Dr. Kapoor and the team at BioAro is purposefully shifting the focus from profit-first to human-first.
With the visionary leadership of its Founder, Dr. Anmol Kapoor, along with a resolute team of experience experts and modern-era healthcare facilities, BioAro stands out in the industry as a real trailblazer. Considering the lack of accessibility to modern healthcare services across the globe, Dr. Kapoor and BioAro continue their effort to ensure affordable and accessible healthcare for everyone in need.
“At BioAro, we redefine the healthcare experience by putting the individual at the center of their own well-being journey,” explains Dr. Kapoor. “When you choose BioAro, expect more than a medical service; anticipate a partnership. We commit to unraveling the unique tapestry of your health through cutting-edge genomics, offering a personalized roadmap to vitality. Our promise is not just about diagnosing and treating; it’s about understanding you – your genes, your story, your aspirations. Together, we embark on a journey where healthcare is not just accessible; it’s intimately tailored to you, ensuring every step is a stride towards a healthier, longer, and more empowered life.
