Waiting lists, insurance denials, lack of funding emphasize that today's needs vastly outweigh the resources with healthcare and aging services operating as silos. Families and professionals alike are lost trying to navigate the maze of options and obligations. Simply put, demand for high quality care suffers from a fragmented data system that produces gaps and delays that waste resources, harm seniors and inflict financial penalties on the treatment team.
Our team has first hand experience with the chaotic marketplace. Some of us are health care professionals so frustrated with today's broken system. Some of us are family caregivers with personal stories of caring for our loved ones. Our entire team is united by the passion to change the system and break down the walls that block Doctors from talking to social workers and hospitals from talking to family members and so on.
