We solve big problems with simple solutions
Noora Health delivers high-impact health skills training to at-risk patients and their families. By training families with simple, low-risk skills, we enable patients and their families to take care into their own hands and homes.
Patients and caregivers around the world face a similar need – they are desperate for actionable healthcare information, but after Googling in desperation, are unable to find reliable, and easily digestible information. Leveraging human-centered design, Noora Health has developed a suite of services that can be implemented in both high- and low-resource settings.
We meet our users where they are and, with our tools, are able to lower preventable readmissions, reduce length of stay, and highly improve quality of care and patient satisfaction.
Hospitals use our simple, interactive and low-cost platform, as an effective tool to prepare patients for a safe and speedy recovery at home.
As a non-profit, the core objective of Noora Health is to serve marginalized populations. Currently, through a partnership with a chain of low-cost hospitals in India, Narayana Health, we have trained over 7,000 patient family members with our caregiver training program.
Coupling video-based lessons with in-person practice training, we teach family members how to coach basic physical therapy exercises, encourage proper dietary/lifestyle changes, and recognize early warning signs of medical emergencies. We create the opportunity for medically informed, round the clock support, improved recovery, and a safer transition home.
Noora Health leverages the latest in digital education technology to deliver personalized, disease-specific education via a tablet-based application for patients and caregivers.
Through our fun, interactive, and skill-based learning, we make sure that patient families really have everything they need to succeed after a major diagnosis or surgery -- replacing anxiety with competency and easing the transition from the hospital to the home.
We cut out repetitive, generalized, scattered information from the workflow of doctors and nurses, freeing up more time to have meaningful, patient-specific discussions.
