Tomorrow Health is reimagining healthcare in the home due to the failing status quo. Today, 90% of seniors elect to age in place rather than in a nursing home. At a time when healthcare bills are the leading cause of personal bankruptcy, the home is the lowest cost and highest value setting of care. While the U.S. has achieved significant progress in healthcare, the transition to home-based care is still extremely challenging.
Our Co-Founder, Vijay Kedar, has personal experience combating these challenges as a result of coordinating his mother’s care. His mother battled Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) — a life-threatening lung condition she had developed while already in an immunocompromised state from her cancer treatment. She spent four months in an ICU room until her lungs thankfully recovered, and she was discharged from the hospital to return home.
While relieved to have his mother safely at home, Vijay and his family were unprepared for the challenges that lay ahead as she made the transition to home-based care. This transition is something that millions of Americans face daily.
“All in, we worked with nearly a dozen local healthcare providers to find the resources she required. There was no guidance — in identifying the equipment best suited for her clinical needs, educating us on proper care, or navigating her insurance benefits. After weeks of delays, thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket costs, and countless hours negotiating with local providers, we were appalled when faulty equipment and unreliable patient support led us right back to the hospital. We ended up in the place she had worked so hard to leave.”
Determined to alleviate similar hardships for others, Vijay along with his friend and colleague, Gabe Flateman (formerly Co-Founder and CTO of Casper) built Tomorrow Health to serve as the beacon of light for millions of Americans transitioning to home-based care.
Tomorrow Health is a technology-driven home healthcare company that is fundamentally changing the way individuals and families manage their care at home. Acting as a trusted resource for individuals, caregivers, and clinicians, our Care Advocate Team guides them through the process of getting the medical equipment, supplies, and support that are critical for keeping people healthy at home and out of the hospital.
By combining technology-enabled operations with personalized service, we curate the home healthcare products, supplies, and support best suited for the clinical needs of patients, deliver directly to their doorstep, and navigate insurance benefits on their behalf. We partner with insurers and care providers to coordinate and deliver home-based care. Most importantly, our Care Advocates provide end-to-end guidance and support — working on behalf of the patients we serve as we would for our own family members.
