What is the Gali app?
Gali is an AI-based friend and personal health assistant app helping people with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) proactively manage their condition. The app is built by Gali Health. Gali gathers knowledge from daily interactions and health monitors to tailor support and information to your specific IBD experience. That means Gali is 100% unique to you!
Whom is the Gali app for?
Right now Gali is focused on supporting adults ages 18+ who live with IBD. Much of the information Gali provides may be useful for caregivers as well, but her primary audience are those living with the condition. Gali is currently not able to support children under the age of 18 or significant others to those with IBD.
What are the benefits of using Gali?
The benefits of using Gali extend beyond keeping track of your daily physical symptoms and ensuring that you take your medications. Gali crowdsources information about all facets of your condition and delivers vetted content to you in a personalized way whenever you need it. People with IBD will benefit from her analytical skills, research capabilities and emotional support. By offering personalized health and treatment monitors she analyzes the information you give her to provide you with practical health reports, so you can proactively track your unique patterns and adjust your habits to improve your health. Gali also engages you in the larger IBD community, so you don’t feel alone in your health journey.

What is the IBD Footprints Program?
Gali has an exciting new community-driven precision medicine research initiative called the IBD Footprints Program! Participants regularly use the Gali Health app (filling out the daily Health and Treatment monitors at least 2 times per week) and collecting stool and saliva samples from the comfort of their own homes. The research program is available to people with IBD aged 18+ who reside in the United States. If you are interested in participating, simply chat “I want to join the study!” to Gali. To learn more, please visit the IBD Footprints Program page.
What is the Gali Healthomics Technology?
Onboarding the IBD patient community onto Gali’s unique Healthomics platform allows Gali Health to longitudinally monitor disease activity in a diverse and heterogeneous global patient population. The Gali Healthomics Platform is comprised of mobile digital health and lifestyle coaching and monitoring technology that integrates non-invasive “self” collected biosample capabilities.
Gali Health’s proprietary platform for downstream sample processing and analysis allows us to capture high-quality multiomics data at an unprecedented scale and resolution. This integrated, multi-omic approach enables the company to develop next-generation diagnostics and therapeutics for complex, multi-factorial conditions such as IBD.
