Prepared Health is expanding quickly across the country and we’re excited to see the growth happening in our own city. Check out the article that ChicagoInno posted about our roll out in Chicago and what’s next for Prepared Health.
PreparedHealth’s app is a platform where multiple health care providers working on one patient can communicate and coordinate care. Primary doctors, skilled nurses, physical therapists and home health care workers—all assisting the same patient—can see the work that’s being done and receive updates in real time. The startup provides data back to the organizations on what is and isn’t working for the patient, with the goal of reducing readmission rates.
PreparedHealth also uses artificial intelligence called DINA, which stands for digital nursing assistant, that can intervene and notify care providers when a patient might be a good candidate for hospice, for example. The startup is simplifying a communication process that is largely done via fax machine, phone and even in-person meetings between health care providers.
