Transforming nursing home care delivery through a suite of technology solutions

curavihealth.com

Curavi Health focuses on developing technological innovation across the post-acute care spectrum. Its first solution is a novel telemedicine platform which aims to significantly reduce potentially avoidable hospitalizations and to optimize resident care in nursing homes.

Curavi allows for live, video-enabled consults with geriatricians and other specialists at the University of Pittsburgh. Curavi stems from work done at UPMC pursuant to a CMS Innovation Award and was organically developed at UPMC — it was spun out in 2016.
