Cara Care aims to support every person in the world with a gastrointestinal disease with the first therapeutic digital companion for digestive care. Their platform combines the power of UX, UI, Data Science, Marketing, Tech, Medicine, Business, and Psychology to shape the user experience and provide the first evidence-based, digital therapy for digestive health. To date, Cara Care has helped more than 650,000 people across Germany and the United States manage digestive diseases with over a 78% success rate.
How it works:
By downloading the Cara Care app, individuals can customize their experience by keeping a digital food and symptom log to track personal data. It will then analyze the data and show correlations to make improvements in your everyday diet. If you choose to purchase the premium upgrade, you will gain access to personalized nutrition therapy. The premium upgrade gives you full access to our licensed Dieticians, Customer Care team and a 12 week program that is specifically tailored to you depending on the illness and symptoms. Our therapy programs also include mental health interventions with hypnotherapy and gut-directed relax sessions. The digital platform allows users to get effective and personalized treatment outside of the doctor’s office.
GI diseases are highly influenced by factors like diet, stress, physical activity, and mental health. Cara Care can help identify a person’s triggers for symptoms and flare ups, and then tailor the professional treatment to reduce those symptoms and enhance their quality of life. By monitoring your digestive health, you can improve your overall well-being and feel better by making smarter choices for your body.
According to the Massachusetts Medical Society, gastrointestinal diseases cost $136 billion annually in healthcare expenditures, more than heart disease and trauma in annual costs. Tens of millions of individuals deal with gut issues, and there is a huge gap between those who seek GI help and those who suffer. Digital therapeutics is a part of the next wave in healthcare, and mobile software can have a significant therapeutic effect on patients. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, point-of-care tools such as applications on smartphones has been shown to support better clinical decision-making and improved patient outcomes. Offering a mobile product gives users a more convenient and comfortable way of tackling their health issues.
