For Hari Prasad, trying to fill out his patient paperwork with a dislocated shoulder at the emergency room wasn’t just annoying – it was painful. He had to find his insurance card, remember all the medications he was on, and do it all while in serious discomfort.
Having worked for hospitals and insurers, and with an academic background in health informatics, finance, and data analytics, he knew there had to be a better way. And that’s how the Yosi app began.
Reaching out to doctors he respected, Hari assembled a team to develop a platform to meet the urgent need for an improved patient experience and front office productivity. Patients and doctors want the same things – less paper work, more efficiency and shared secure information so they can focus on improving health outcomes.
We think it is not too much to ask for. So we created Yosi to help patients, doctors, and the people who support them.
Most of our founders grew up in India or Israel.
In Tamil, one of the oldest languages in the world, Yosi means “awareness.”
In Hebrew, it means, “he will grow.”
