Why it matters
While coordinated care has been shown to reduce health care costs by $ 7,700 per patient per year, a staggering 74 percent of seniors do not yet have a coordinated care plan. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that 53 million Americans are already struggling to care for their older loved ones and there will be a shortage of 1.2 million home health aides over the next decade. An aging population of more than 100 million Americans with two or more chronic illnesses is driving the rapid growth of the $ 9.6 billion-a-year U.S. market for healthcare management software solutions. HeyRenee aims to alleviate this burden through coordinated, high-contact care throughout the healthcare ecosystem, starting with patients and physicians.
