About the innovation
Careteam Technologies enables better and simpler healthcare though one digital platform that connects patients and professionals to enable optimal health.
As an AI-enhanced digital health platform, Careteam Technologies enables patient-centered care collaboration and system navigation for patients with complex, chronic diseases across different health conditions and contexts (hospital, clinic, community and home) so everyone involved (patients, family and health professionals) is on the same page and can proactively address compliance, gaps and overlaps.
The Careteam Technologies platform has innate flexibility and can adapt and integrate to accommodate the range of needs of care delivery. It is a flexible communication tool that is focused on the patient and their support circle with the ability to adapt to the ongoing changes in health and daily life. This collaborative platform reduces system costs while improving outcomes and satisfaction - benefitting the bottom line of the quadruple aim.
