June 28, 2022
NATICK, Mass. – Allurion Technologies, a company dedicated to ending obesity, today unveiled a major update to the Allurion Virtual Care Suite (VCS), including the launch of the company’s Allurion Iris Artificial Intelligence Platform and Success Predictor, the first in a pipeline of machine-learning algorithms designed to improve patient outcomes. In addition, through the introduction of Treatment Tracking and Clinic-Led Onboarding, the VCS now enables seamless management of patients undergoing one or multiple weight-loss treatments including gastric balloons, surgery, or medications.
Starting today, Success Predictor is available to all Allurion partner clinics. The Success Predictor is a proprietary machine-learning algorithm trained on millions of data points from more than 20,000 Allurion Balloon Program patients in 50+ different countries to ensure a high degree of generalizability. As early as 20 days into the program, Success Predictor can inform the clinic if the patient is on track or not to reach their minimum expected weight loss. Through early identification of patients needing additional support, clinicians can intervene sooner, enabling them to course correct the patient’s care, quickly getting them back on track.
“Success Predictor is truly a game-changer for our customers,”
said Jeff Feldgoise, Allurion’s SVP Digital.
“100% of clinicians who have been trialing Success Predictor via our early access rollout have modified how they treat their patients. This capability, combined with the rest of the new VCS features, differentiate Allurion as a clear leader in digital services for a wide range of weight loss interventions.”
Success Predictor is just one of several new features that are announced today as part of a major update to the Allurion Virtual Care Suite (VCS). The remaining features enable clinics to streamline management of patients undergoing a variety of weight loss interventions:
Designed to enable management of all types of weight-loss patients, treatment tracking allows clinicians to directly assign patients to one or multiple weight-loss treatments, such as surgery, drug-based therapies, gastric balloons and more.
Simplifying patient onboarding and improving clinic workflow, clinic-led onboarding allows clinicians to invite patients to use the Allurion Virtual Care Suite. By being in control, clinics make sure patients are properly set up for success, with their data automatically available to the clinics for remote patient monitoring of all their patients.

“In addition, Allurion believes that the future of weight loss will be an ecosystem comprised of multiple modalities of therapy. These new features to the Virtual Care Suite uniquely position it to be the ideal choice for providers all over the world to manage their patients and improve outcomes.”
