It actually addresses all aspects of the quadruple aim."

Priyam Parikh, Founder and CEO of, drew from personal experience to create a cutting-edge solution to a universal problem in healthcare, the often protracted and complicated hospital discharge process.

Inspiration struck when Parikh's father was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2018 and was consequently discharged from Stanford Hospital with a daunting large docment detailing his post-operative care. Recognizing this challenge was not exclusive to their situation, Parikh decided to use technology to tackle the issue on a global scale.

Acknowledging the universal challenge, Parikh validated the concept across multiple countries including the United States, India, Mexico, and France, proving the widespread need for a more simplified and comprehensive hospital discharge procedure. was subsequently developed as a plug-and-play solution for hospitals, payers, and patients, aiming to improve hospital-to-home outcomes and reduce labor costs through a personalized, AI-assisted home care platform.

The platform's DischargePlus system, a revolutionary AI/ML-based concept, generates an Intelligent Discharge Plan (IDP) intended to streamline the transition from hospital to home. The IDP incorporates functions like intuitive Discharge Radar, Patient Education, effective Patient Follow-ups, and a clear Path to Recovery, all orchestrated by a virtual assistant, nurse Flora, helping to alleviate the stress of post-operative care.

Parikh's vision is to train nurse Flora with a language model nFLM (powered by data), a digital nurse with personalized healthcare, so patients can ask questions about their own health.

Florence Nightingale was one of the most prominent healthcare figures of her time and the founder of modern nursing. Similar to the passionate service she provided to the people during her lifetime, our nurse Flora will provide effective digital healthcare services to the people. This service will be launched in the US and taken across the world. DischargePlus proactively addresses a common predicament - the lack of adequate post-operative follow-up support - which often stems from complicated discharge documents, scarce hospital staff, and a shortage of real-time support systems.

Featuring deep integration with EHR systems, DischargePlus offers:

  • An interactive Patient Interface on web and mobile, providing essential care related to the surgery.
  • A Provider Dashboard delivering critical insights for monitoring and support.
  • A Payer Dashboard offering analytics around the overall healthcare value delivered.

DischargePlus offers an easy setup for providers utilizing EHR as a system of record and can be integrated within existing environments via SDK, making it a versatile solution for any forward-thinking healthcare provider who prioritizes patient care. With a motto of simplifying post-operative care, DischargePlus has filed for patent rights in the US for generating IDPs.
