The Aidin Mission
Aidin's mission is to bring transparency to the healthcare system and empower patients with data to make more informed decisions on where they receive care. We're backed by the best institutional investors in both consumer internet and healthcare IT. Aidin was born out of Blueprint Health, a highly competitive healthcare IT accelerator. We currently reside in Dogpatch Labs, a fantastic office housing the best startup community in New York. Our team is dynamic with backgrounds in education, energy conservation and medical imaging systems.
Aidin is a web app used by hospitals to collect hard data about how well post-acute providers, like nursing homes and home health agencies, perform. We make it easy for hospitals to present quality information to patients exactly when they are choosing a nursing home or home aid – helping patients choose better providers for better outcomes.
By empowering patients with data to choose the provider best-suited to serve their individual health needs, Aidin enables hospitals to reduce readmissions by one third and length of stay by half a day. Aidin is a member of the inaugural class of Blueprint Health.
