We envision a world where healthcare
To always let care teams know, in real-time, when their patients are receiving care and provide tools to respond and deliver interventions. The hospital-to-community transition is fraught with risks to patients. Care teams need better solutions to proactively connect across the continuum and coordinate patient care.
Founded in 2012 by physicians in New York City, Cureatr helps accountable care organizations, hospitals and health systems, specialty care providers, payers and physician group practices track patients in real-time throughout the care continuum and improve care coordination. Cureatr builds networks of Care Transition Notifications (CTNs) paired with a robust mobile care coordination platform. Cureatr’s CTNs alert clinicians in real-time on mobile or desktop applications when an attributed patient is receiving care anywhere within a region and delivers necessary information that is essential to reducing preventable hospitalizations and avoiding readmissions.
