Antoni Esteve, Chairman of AdSalutem, commented “despite sleep being a necessary physiological phenomenon to which we dedicate a third of our lives, we do not yet have complete knowledge of the function and purpose of this crucial part of health. However, with time more studies have identified the importance of sleeping patterns and their effect on health and quality of life. This collaboration agreement between AdSalutem Institute and Barcelona Health Hub will allow us to develop our knowledge of sleep and its relationship to health further and put such knowledge at the disposal of members of society”.

Additionally, Luis Badrinas, the CEO of Barcelona Health Hub and Community of Insurance, stated “our objective is to construct a global ecosystem that reaches all corners of the globe and is vinculated to all and any actors that participate in the promotion of digital health through the adoption of innovative digital technologies”.
