As Medical Director at Landmark Health, Dr. Justin Schram experienced the challenges and rewards of being a house call doctor at senior living communities. He repeatedly found that crucial resident information was difficult to access, and staff members felt frustrated with the systems they had in place to orchestrate and document care.
Caregivers perform society’s most essential work but rely on paper records or legacy software tools that are not meeting the moment.
If the staff is happy using smartphone apps for crucial tasks in their daily lives, why do they struggle so much with the legacy Assisted Living software systems?
Dr. Schram teamed up with Erez Cohen, an ex-Apple leader, and experienced startup founder, to address this gap by building an easy-to-use, elegant platform that empowers senior living operators to perform their best work. Their goal is to unblock the essential workers, make their working lives more joyful, seamlessly guide them toward best practices, and make it easier to operate a successful senior living community.
Combining the wisdom of leading Assisted Living operators, consultants, and attorneys with the efforts of our team of Silicon Valley designers and engineers – August Health is bringing fresh thinking to create a new gold standard for senior living software.
