Global digital health company, Curatio, has responded to the urgent need for patient support in India with its unique platform that delivers evidence-based information and programs embedded with social and mental health support. Officially launched on May 6th, the company’s Stronger Together app has specifically designed programs and support for COVID survivors and long-haulers.
The Stronger Together app initiative uses Curatio‘s patient social networking platform to deliver peer support, coaching from experts, evidence-based health literacy programs, and daily check-ins for both patients and families. The platform is privacy and regulatory compliant, already used in over 104 countries and available in 20 languages. Curatio has additionally partnered with Cloud DX, an award-winning advance remote patient monitoring solution, to deliver COVID-19 specific programming and support.
Available on iOS and Android the Stronger Together app addresses the needs of North American patients whose resources and support systems have been impacted during COVID-19 while minimizing the impact on overburdened healthcare systems. As hospitals continue to deal with the COVID-19 crisis in India, people who have health conditions now have less access to clinical care and social support.
“As a company that lives and breathes its mission of No Patient Alone, we wanted to provide immediate support to patients and families in India. The Stronger Together app has been so well received here in North America by patients who have been unable to attend their regular medical check-ups or connect with their support systems due to social distancing. With the heartbreaking situation in India, we hope that our app can be a tool for patients who are managing health and mental wellbeing challenges during such a trying time”, states Lynda-Brown Ganzert, CEO of Curatio.
In addition to a range of evidence-based programs available in the Stronger Together app that has been created for people with chronic conditions such as cardiovascular health issues and stroke recovery, the app offers programs and peer-to-peer communities for COVID-19 Survivors and Long-Haulers as well as people who are parenting during the pandemic.
“During a time when there is so much misinformation, especially on the topic of COVID-19 and its long term effects, Stronger Together offers trusted information developed by experts all in a safe, privacy-compliant environment,” says Brown-Ganzert, “Furthermore, the ability to connect with others who are going through the same thing can make a huge difference, both in one’s physical and mental health”.
