Founders Pierre-Jean “PJ” Cobut and Elad Ferber started Spry Health with a mission to help chronically ill patients receive proactive care and help them stay out of the hospital.
They have seen firsthand family members struggle with their chronic conditions. Patients see their doctors a few times a year, for a few minutes at a time. In order for doctors to determine change in the patient’s condition, they often rely on a mix of current symptoms, intermittent monitoring, and the patient’s own recollection of their health and symptoms since the last visit. This is a partial picture at best. And it often isn’t enough to keep patients out of the hospital or support them in keeping their condition under control. For patients, there’s constant stress – not knowing if tomorrow will bring a bad day or a hospital visit.
PJ and Elad could see these glaring gaps in traditional disease management for the chronically ill and set out to build a solution to bridge those gaps.
