Buddy Healthcare is a Finnish startup about to launch a mobile health service that connects pediatric surgery patients and their families with hospitals. The solution is developed together with four leading children’s hospitals in Finland and US. Buddy Healthcare automates communications and ensurers that patients, their families and hospitals have needed information at the right time pre and post surgery. Buddy’s mobile application for end users provides automated communications through the entire surgery process, such as appointment reminders, preparation and recovery instructions, navigation to and inside the hospital, medication reminders, pain diary, feedback etc. The app replaces paper documents and pre-questionnaires, phone calls back and forth, and contains up-to-date information on the patient’s journey through the surgery process. Hospitals benefit from improved visibility and they also obtain significant cost savings through reduced number of no-shows and readmissions and administrative costs.
