better health for all

Advancing Health Equity and Addressing Social Determinants of Health

Since our beginning, we have used our platform to support and engage populations that have been historically disadvantaged to address health inequities and improve outcomes.

We understand that among vulnerable groups, social determinants of health (SDOH) like a lack of safe housing, transportation, education, access to nutritious food, and literacy skills contribute to glaring health disparities.

As a solution, we partner with employers, health plans, public health departments, Medicaid, and Medicare to surround each patient with a personalized care team at no cost to patients. And our holistic, relationship-based approach allows patients to feel comfortable in sharing the specific SDOH that make it difficult for them to take their medications. With this knowledge, we address medication-adherence barriers and help providers deliver evidence-based interventions.

We’re Built to Reach the Unreached

Built for low connectivity

emocha was built for patients in remote and rural settings as well as those with intermittent internet access. We have extensive experience deploying our tech to patients with limited data or low connectivity so they can access our program regardless of their situation.

Available in 20+ languages

emocha’s mobile app interface is easy to use, designed for older populations and non-English speakers. Languages include Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, French, Somali, Tagalog, Nepali, Persian, Arabic, Hindi, and more.

Highly personalized and convenient

Asynchronous, two-way video is extremely accessible, convenient, and impactful. We believe this medium represents the next frontier of digital health.

Extra impactful to those who are isolated

Daily check-ins between patients and their dedicated emocha nurse and health coach allow for high impact engagement that helps address loneliness. We’re able to quickly identify and escalate deeper care needs.

Supportive of multiple populations

emocha’s program is easy to deploy to multiple populations. Patients with chronic conditions often struggle with comorbidities. We help patients understand these conditions and complex regimens and learn how to self manage.
