How it all Began
Our origin story starts from knowing nurses are the largest workforce in the country. If we could increase their capacity, we thought this could have the largest impact on healthcare. Software built for our current healthcare system, either you get the sickest and have no income or never get sick and pay the most. We wanted to create a software that would envision optimal care for patients and be designed by team based doctors and nurses. They expressed that we need to include how patients and members are proactive, goal oriented, and motivated in their health to enable best care for patients. And every person’s health is unique because it has cause and effect relationships. We wanted to design a software incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) building an ecosystem from patient, doctor, nurse, and beyond. So, we created RADECT—a father and son team.
Enter our Health Care Journey
Our healthcare system ranks 39th in life expectancy. There are many areas that could be bettered that would improve this outcome. It’s not that we don’t have the knowledge or resource, but that our focus and division of resources don’t support the majority of the country. Doctors are overburdened. There is a lack of emphasis on managed healthcare and preventative treatments. Especially within minority and lower socioeconomic neighborhoods, the problem is only further exacerbated. Health equity is still a hope, but it needs to be democratized. We aspire to create greater access and comprehensiveness across all social determinants of individual health and wellness, as well as the general population’s health. We strive to build new, empowering data sets and analysis that will support this proactive approach to preventative healthcare. The silos in healthcare can be broken.
We are a team that enjoys browsing the web and playing video games. What techie-geeks do not? Our family realized there are many enjoyable activities that aren’t integrated as a part of healthcare and yet have the capacity to be a part of the health continuum. Social media, meetups, mental gaming, virtual reality fitness, health literacy, lifestyle, and many other fun exercise activities that aren't specifically thought of as "working out" can be utilized within the healthcare field but currently aren’t considered. Yoga, for example, is a great holistic fusion of wellness and healthcare, and yogis have their own experiential knowledge, yet they are trapped within a specific sphere of physical fitness. If properly personalized and scaled, these practices can become integral parts of a person’s healthcare continuum. The same goes for unlocking other community social and health organizations. Team-based healthcare is missing these critical underserved resources. With all this, we can make healthcare fun. We are inspired to scale these many overlooked solutions across healthcare conditions and integrate the fun, every-day activities many people do into preventative care solutions.
