Using Moving Analytics’ solution, a care manager can generate an individualized care plan for the patient and send this plan to his or her smartphone. At home, the app guides the patient through a series of supervised exercises, delivers educational content and provides an easy to use interface to track vital signs and chat with his or her provider. The app also analyzes patient behaviors and alerts the care manager if any issues should arise. The care manager coaches the patients in weekly phone-based sessions and modifies their treatment plan based on new symptoms and progress.
OCA Ventures joins a team of existing investors in Moving Analytics, including Launchpad Digital Health, a digital health investment firm and accelerator based in San Francisco, CA, and HealthX ventures, a seed-stage venture capital fund based in Madison, WI.
