About DayToDay Health

Launched in 2018, DayToDay Health is an MIT Startup with a bold vision for the future of healthcare. We focus on acute, post-surgical and out-of-hospital care, and we are the first company to provide end-to-end acute care services globally. We address two critical challenges in healthcare in particular accessibility and clinical outcomes.

With accessibility, we are delivering well-researched, digitally enabled patient protocols and pathways to patients and families across the globe. Patients can access our holistic virtual care services conveniently from their mobile device, which allows us to provide superior care continuity. In many cases, we are the only support patients have before and after their procedures when patients are at home.

To improve clinical outcomes, we are bridging the communication gap between clinicians and patients. Currently, managing patient care adequately across the entire journey remains a challenge. 80% of clinician instructions are forgotten immediately when a patient leaves the hospital. Of what patients do remember, 50% is misremembered, causing further anxiety, confusion and longer recoveries. We enable clinicians to engage patients throughout the entire care journey.

Our vision is to combine the latest technology with the knowledge and experience of the best doctors to make healthcare simpler, better, and more effective for people everywhere.
