Meet the Team
Health-Connected was created by the two co-founders to address the failures of the care they experienced along their families care journeys. Carers worked hard, were poorly rewarded and inadequately supported by technology. the result was that person centred care, the cornerstone of any care plan, was sadly lacking.
They gained investment and support from care professionals and industry leaders that also wanted to utilise technology to enhance person-centred care, as well as from many investors that had also experienced the chalenges of caring for their loved ones, and simply wanted to see a better care system take shape.
