When my grandmother received a hip and knee replacement last year, I never imagined that the most painful part of her procedure would happen outside of the hospital . After a smooth surgery, my family received a list of phone numbers and addresses from the nurse to help find a rehab facility. Overwhelmed with options and no quality information to help us choose, we selected a facility close to home. The first three days of rehab were scary for my grandmother and my family. We didn't know it then, but we chose a facility that had a reputation of mismanaging medication and my grandmother was over-medicated for 3 days. Hallucinating and lacking any understanding of her surroundings, she spent an extra week getting rehab for reasons that were unclear to my entire family.
Aidin is reworking this process with a tool used by hospitals that quickly matches patients to the post-discharge provider (like nursing homes or rehab centers) that is best suited to serve the patients individual health needs. We do this by getting hard data on the quality of care of these providers and presenting it to the patient right when they need it most. Think Yelp for healthcare.

It’s a broad job description and we’re looking for someone who loves being part of a fast-paced, constantly evolving work environment where your opinions and decisions will seriously affect our technical direction.
