Delivering the first ever integrated coordination between personal care and home healthcare at scale

Why Integrated Care Coordination is Needed

Simply one functional limitation triples the expected annual healthcare cost from approximately $7,500 to over $21,000 per year. Source: Commonwealth Fund

The healthcare industry now recognizes that functional limitations (eg. a disability, or does not have the physical, cognitive or psychological ability to independently perform the routine activities of daily living -- such as dementia), and social determinants related to health outcomes (eg. physical and geographical living conditions, economic status and access to healthcare) drive a multiple of cost for complex chronic populations.

For patients 65 and older with 3 or more chronic conditions, the traditional healthcare system isn’t designed to manage the challenges of patients with functional limitations and social determinants.
