After launching CoHealth in 30 Canadian hospitals, the company is now launching CoHealth 2.0 across the country. The app, which is available for both patients and health providers, allows users to manage appointments and medication, locate nearby healthcare providers, and access care provider recommended care plan tasks during recovery periods.

“CoHealth 2.0 has been built from a patient-centric perspective in a way that promotes active care management and support alongside access to sources of community care,” said CoHealth CEO and co-founder, Zack Fisch-Rothbart, in a statement. “Since the founding of CoHealth in 2015, CoHealth has continuously prioritized the needs of patients and care providers to improve patient support, care, and understanding, while promoting smooth transitions of care throughout the patient journey.”

Some of the improvements to the app the company has announced include an overhauled user experience, the ability to add multiple care organizations and access more information and support. The company said the new app will also feature better reporting capabilities for care providers in the form of patient-reported outcomes data, and enhanced access to community care resources for patients.

Toronto-based CoHealth, which was first established in 2013, rebranded from its previous name, Dash MD, last September. The company, raised $500,000 in funding from GTAN and Niagara Angel Network last April. One month later, the company received $250,000 from Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network to develop a local version of its app.

“By helping patients more effectively navigate care journeys, CoHealth opens up opportunities for care providers to generate meaningful insights and a deeper understanding from the patient perspective, promoting greater reporting and feedback capabilities when compared to traditional patient feedback resources,” said Fisch-Rothbart.

CoHealth 2.0 will be available on app stores on the week of April 1. CoHealthnotd that existing users will be able to update without any disruption to existing service.
