Who Salaso is

Reduce costs with Salaso

For employers, Salaso delivers better health outcomes at a lower cost. How? Let’s look at musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions as an example. Nearly half of large employers rank MSK conditions as the condition having the greatest impact on their healthcare costs. And 85% of large employers ranked it among their top three cost drivers. This isn’t surprising when you consider that nearly all working people will experience MSK conditions at some point in their careers. For employees, MSK conditions can be debilitating, impacting their quality of life, productivity and wellbeing. For employers, the cost of MSK conditions is astronomical, and rising.

1 in 8 working people lost work days in the previous 12 months because of an MSK condition.

Our story

Our Solution | Salaso Healthcare

“As a clinician, I observed first-hand the demands placed on overburdened healthcare systems. As an academic lecturing in multimedia studies, I experienced the power of digital tools in optimising service delivery and augmenting quality care. Thus, the idea of Salaso was born.

By combining the power of a digital platform and a deep understanding of clinical workflows, Salaso has developed an enterprise-class digital therapy platform enabling healthcare clients develop new models of service delivery through a digital channel, complementary to traditional in-person care.”

Aoife Ní Mhuirí, CEO and Founder

Today, in our post-pandemic, new world of hybrid models of service delivery and distributed working, Salaso’s cognitive, content-rich, evidence-informed and highly-scalable digital therapy platform is accelerating the digital transformation journey for our healthcare industry clients. 

Salaso’s digital therapy platform empowers healthcare providers to shift from delivering siloed, episodic healthcare to efficiently providing a more longitudinal continuum of healthcare and well-being services throughout the lifespan of the user.

This shift is enabling healthcare providers to efficiently scale previously proven population health management models, thereby making a real impact on the health of the communities they serve.

Our solution

For health care providers, digital is key to improving quality of care and delivering more care by removing friction in the system and serving as a “force-extender” for providers. Clinicians want to focus on delivering high-quality care to their patients and digital solutions can help integrate/augment their workflow while reducing time spent on administrative tasks (e.g., handling patient data, managing referrals and paperwork). Providers are open to using digital dashboards and tools if they can be shown to help improve outcomes, save time, and manage cost. 

At Salaso we are focused on helping our healthcare industry clients accelerate their digital transformation journeys by catalyzing the emerging hybrid-care model and enabling the real time delivery of new-complementary digital therapy services to patients and consumers, aimed at improving the inclusive, equitable and affordable access to quality care.

On the HealthTech side, our Secure Therapy Engagement Platform Services (STEPS) offers an integrated suite of evidence base and clinically tested digital therapies, featuring personalized and frictionless user experience for patients and consumers that provides greater and scalable access, enables maximum well-being, and lowers costs.

Our solution

Transforming patient care

The pandemic forever altered the healthcare industry. Never have more providers, care teams, and staff relied on digital technologies to communicate, diagnose, treat, and stand-up new services at a moment’s notice.

COVID-19 also challenged traditional assumptions and barriers to healthcare digitization. Digital initiatives that what once took hospitals and healthcare systems years of planning and implementation suddenly took weeks, or even days, to execute. With a focus on agility and care continuity, healthcare organizations adapted swiftly to a global crisis and became heroes in the making.

For over 5 years, Salaso has partnered with healthcare organizations to transform and extend on-premise patient care to virtual care to the home. As one of the digital therapy platforms of choice for healthcare providers, including 3 of the top 30 largest health systems worldwide, Salaso’s evidence based clinical use cases and digital therapy service delivery platform, enables healthcare IT (HIT) and Digital Innovation Business Units to safely accelerate their digital transformation journeys, strategies and industry imperatives, while improving patient outcomes and therapy adherence, and driving operational excellence and security at scale.

We at Salaso are passionate about enabling our clients redefine the digital care market, by co-creating together and discovering new roads to the health innovation ecosystems and cognitive healthcare centers of tomorrow.
