Today's healthcare providers offer various handy tools, including <medium>new people-centric applications.<medium>
Remote care solutions have been marketed as a route to more efficient experiences for both the health care provider and the patient (in the previous article, we talked about it in more detail).
Let's highlight some of these solutions implemented in software products.
<medium>The digital health market is rising<medium>: it should reach nearly 660 billion dollars by 2025, in accordance with Statista's forecast.
Becoming the best version of yourself is today's trend. It's boosted by the healthcare industry development and social media promotion of a healthy lifestyle. We <medium>revalue our lives, change harmful habits and patterns, and tend to be stronger and healthier.<medium>
Paying close attention to health issues is nothing but the rise of awareness. Healthcare became a part of information technology where new integrated solutions ensure the well-being of people. It is gaining momentum, particularly in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
What is more important, the era of digital nomads has proven its benefits. The advantages of the work-from-anywhere concept are significant — <medium>geography is no longer a barrier.<medium>
It becomes a new renaissance opening new horizons for people, and providing them with <medium>flexibility and joy of freedom<medium>. This applies to the healthcare industry, too.
There are 3 success factors that play a pivotal role in today's competitive market:
App stores are filled with products markered as <medium>eHealth, mHealth, telehealth<medium>, and other healths.
Not all that glitters is gold, but many innovative applications are worth attention.
Let's take a look at some of them, the reasons for their popularity, and real-life experience of healthcare app development by Freshcode.
Here we've highlighted the <medium>most trending healthcare startups<medium>. Let's look a little closer at this magnificent ten.
Cera is a healthcare-at-home provider helping people <medium>find a carer worldwide<medium>. Its goal is to promote caring, reduce hospitalization, and eliminate red tape surrounding the caring process.
Cera simplifies the process of caring (which is often complicated on both medical and legal sides) with a convenient mobile application. Through technology, Cera is revolutionizing healthcare by bringing services like <medium>care, nursing, telemedicine<medium>, and <medium>repeat prescriptions out of hospitals and into homes<medium>. If you're Cera's client, it's easy to check how your loved one is doing at any time. For the carer, it's easy to submit any health-related issues the patient might have.
Cera is not only simplifying an earlier complicated process — it is also <medium>raising awareness among young doctors and promoting personalized care<medium>. Given the global trend toward aging (according to the UN DESA 2019 Report) and lacking number of medical workers because of the changing proportion of physicians and patients, services like Cera can grow exponentially in the next 5 to 10 years. Medical and related professions are expected to be the most in-demand in the US over the next decade.
Traveling is deeply integrated into American history, culture, and business, and startup like Nomad Health is a good continuation of the story. Nomad allows clinicians complete medical assignments all over the US.
This healthcare platform <medium>offers medical specialists to fill two needs with one deed<medium>: to travel and still work at the same time, continuing to help people with the same efficiency.
So, it's easy to get that startup's name <medium>refers to the phenomenon of a digital nomad<medium>, describing long-time traveling people working remotely. Probably, one of Nomad Health's missions is to provide a traveling option for doctors.
<medium>'Traditional' immobility of health service delivery and access is a serious barrier<medium> for young people to choose medical professions. A flexible work schedule, work-from-anywhere options, and decent pay are key ingredients to solve this problem and incentivize young people not to give up on the profession of physician.
One more benefit Nomad Health provides is the ability to choose <medium>specific cases that meet your particular interests as a medical specialist<medium> for balanced professional growth.
Wysa is an opportunity to <medium>enhance mental health and keep a better track of mental well-being<medium>. This healthcare startup went beyond simply offering the therapist like most mental health-oriented apps are used to do today. Instead, it offers an alternative approach.
Wysa is an AI-powered chatbot leveraging evidence-based cognitive-behavioral techniques (CBT) that help make clients feel heard. The application is completely anonymous and doesn't require registration. Wysa offers a set of useful options:
RelieVR, AppliedVR's leading product, was designed <medium>to address chronic pain<medium>; it enables patients to alter how they experience pain and form brand-new, <medium>helpful habits and coping mechanisms<medium>.
AppliedVR technology is about <medium>mechanisms of attentional modulation<medium> and <medium>VR therapy for chronic pain reduction<medium>. This shift in focus may be crucial in treating significant conditions like pain and anxiety, according to scholarly studies.
Solving pain through immersive therapeutics is an untrodden path, where this HealthTech startup is one of the pioneers. AppliedVR is committed to taking an evidence-based path to FDA approvals, received from research and collaboration on clinical trials with leading healthcare institutions.
Babylon Health is one of those medical startups giving a patient <medium>rapid and simple real-time access<medium> to doctors, physiotherapists, nurses, and pharmacists <medium>within the space of a single mobile app.<medium>
Patients can take charge of their health with digital health technologies accessible round-the-clock. It's both about
Babylon takes advantage of <medium>artificial intelligence capabilities<medium>, helping nurses and doctors in making better and faster decisions. Giving app permissions, users can benefit from the AI system. The last effectively analyzes and learns from anonymized, aggregated medical datasets.
LetsGetChecked is a platform providing all kinds of medical tests. The highlight is that tests are delivered to the patients' doors and back to the lab free of charge.
The company manufactures test kits at its own accredited laboratory. These kits include all the necessary categories of tests like <medium>men's and women's health, respiratory and infection diseases, hormones<medium>, and others.
LetsGetChecked's physicians analyze test results, and patients get results very quickly. The platform provides 24/7 help with:
The startup uses e-prescribing software (E-Rx), an anonymous patient ID, and maximally automated delivery processes to assure speedy results of the client's samples.
LetsGetChecked is another excellent proof of how healthtech technologies serve their purpose. In the era of digital nomads, healthcare solutions must adapt to keep the wave. So, it's no wonder the medical tests are now at arm's length.
One of the most common health issues among office workers, athletes, and people of other professions is <medium>back and joint pain<medium>. It's often caused by a <medium>sedentary lifestyle or heavy physical exertion<medium>. So, including a chiropractor in the health plan is the first point on the to-do list of many people today.
Hinge Health is a patient-centered digital clinic addressing back and joint problems. It works as a B2B health tech solution for companies offering health plans for their employees. Hinge offers <medium>physical therapy programs for different MSK diseases<medium> and traumas, aiming to <medium>reduce the number of surgeries among their patients.<medium>
The technology stack of HingeHealth includes a versatile application and a medical device Enso. It's FDA-approved <medium>wearable technology using electrical impulses<medium> to effectively relieve musculoskeletal pain. This wireless gadget is used for everyday pain relief during exercise treatment and daily activities.
Cognetivity Neurosciences is a technology platform aiming to power <medium>proactive brain health<medium>. One of its key goals is the <medium>early detection and prevention of cognitive impairment<medium>, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease.
Cognetivity has two main products: CognICA (Cognetivity's Integrated Cognitive Assessment), a solution for measuring cognitive functions, and OptiMind, the wellness app tracking everyday cognitive performance.
CognICA helps diagnose dementia at an early stage or discover the risk of developing these cognitive disorders. In contrast, OptiMind is made for a broader audience and can <medium>help people improve their cognitive health<medium> on a more fundamental level (giving insights about moods, sleep, and behavior).
Marani is one of the promising players in the <medium>maternal and fetal health market<medium>. This startup from Minnesota develops a prenatal care platform and a wearable product to measure vital statistics of women.
Marani strives to <medium>solve the problem of the high rate of high-risk pregnancies and outdated technology in parental clinics<medium>. It eliminates access barriers, empowers women to understand their health, and provides innovative care in the U.S. and around the world.
The company is taking advantage of telehealth and AI practices to accomplish its mission, offering remote monitoring via a handy pregnancy app.
Health applications have gone beyond simply connecting a therapist and a patient. One of the game changers is Circle. This <medium>digital platform unites mutual aid fellowships<medium>, where the members had gone through a similar experience. The <medium>groups are mediated by facilitators<medium> — professional therapists specializing in a specific area.
Mental offers group support via online meetings led by mental health experts. The Circles app serves as the hub for the full platform experience. Clients connect to the weekly video sessions and interact with other Circle participants and facilitators. The app also provides access to a vast collection of resources, such as <medium>CBT-based exercises, webinars on overcoming various life issues<medium>, and more.
