Like Uber’s conversion of cabbies to concierge drivers, Care at Hand is using mobile data to reimagine the way community health workers (CHWs) care for frail elderly. Although not as loud as the Apple or Google digital health headlines, new research carries equally large implications for the healthcare industry. The AHRQ recently published data showing that CHWs – not doctors – can reduce readmissions by 40%. As covered in the NYTimes, CHWs offer an unparalleled opportunity to shed light on the healthcare system’s blindspot for patients between hospitalizations. Care at Hand empowers CHWs to deliver a 20/20 line of site into the real drivers of readmissions and saves lives while solving payers’ and providers’ most costly problems.
