Harmonic Health, a tech-enabled dementia care platform, announced its launch today alongside a partnership with Stoney Batter Family Medicine, a medical practice with locations in Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
Harmonic offers comprehensive care-management for patients and their caregivers, including a physician-engagement platform and 24/7 behavioral, social and medical support.
The company also offers telehealth, predictive care and educational content.
Through its partnership with Stoney Batter Family Medicine, the company will pilot a program providing physicians and their patients with dementia screening, caregiver support and coaching, education, and referrals for community services.
“I know from personal experience that the current situation for treating patients with neurodegenerative diseases is ineffective, unsupportive and deeply frustrating. Patients and caregivers lack support, and physicians lack the resources to provide comprehensive care,” Harmonic CEO and cofounder Jim Gera said in a statement.
“At Harmonic, our goal is to provide that missing support and bridge the gap in care by treating each patient and caregiver with candor, dignity and empathy while focusing care specifically through the lens of the disease.”
