Vitalize Care is a mobile-first mental wellness app, focusing on the well-being of healthcare professionals.
Care is backed by YCombinator, Startup Health, Telosity Ventures,
and founders of top digital health startups. Vitalize was started by three co-
founders - Veeraj Shah , Nikhil D’Souza, and Sanketh
The idea was incubated at the University of Maryland, where Veeraj and Sanketh came together and used their keen observations about the need for mental care for clinicians. They had both been volunteering as caregivers and in other roles to help those needing medical attention.
More than 60% of healthcare workers experience burnout and loneliness, leading them to leave their jobs within 2-3 years. This results in an inadequate number of staff to handle patients' needs. This situation demands special attention. A digital solution could provide balance and much-needed support.
The objective of this project is to develop a mobile application that addresses the mental health needs of healthcare professionals. The app will provide resources, tools, and support for healthcare professionals to manage their mental health and wellbeing in a challenging and demanding work environment.
The vision of Vitalize app was noble but highly complex
This challenge was overcome by planning a short sprint to develop the features and running the entire application with rigorous quality assurance tests.
