About PatientBuddy

PatientBuddy enhances quality of post-discharge care through built-in features such as communication, monitoring, reporting, analytics, and decision making; reducing avoidable readmissions and associated costs.

Cost Effective Post-Discharge Interventions

Inadequate patient and caregiver communication is the biggest risk to hospital readmission reduction initiatives. Avoidable readmissions not only contribute to the high opex costs, but also impact the quality of effective care transitions. PatientBuddy provides a comprehensive platform to proactively monitor and identify patients with high risk of hospital readmission, and apply effective interventions to mitigate that risk.
