Memorial Hermann Health System, a non-profit health system in Houston, Texas, US has invested in intelligent care enablement platform Memora Health.
The investment, whose size was not disclosed, is part of a financing round that also saw the participation of other investors apart from Memorial Hermann.
Among these investors are Northwell Holdings and NorthShore-Edward-Elmhurst Health.
By leveraging Memora’s AI-driven technology, routine elements of care journeys, such as answering frequently asked questions and ensuring medication adherence, can be digitised and automated.
This is expected to boost patient engagement, allow providers to focus more on care, and deliver proactive education, simplifying complex care journeys for clinicians and patients.
Memorial Hermann executive vice-president and chief strategy officer Feby Abraham said: “As a community-focused health system, we’re always looking to invest in new digital technologies that will enable us to better meet the diverse needs of our patients across the Greater Houston area, while also supporting our providers and physician partners.
