About Evoke Health
Our vision is to build an interconnected and streamlined digital health infrastructure that improves health outcomes and better meets the needs of both patients and providers.
Building digital health for better care
Health care is not just about delivery of a service to solve medical issues. It is also about educating and empowering patients and their families to make the best decisions going forward to live healthy and fulfilling lives.
Evoke Health was founded by Varsha and Graham with this same belief; that easy, quick, and barrier-free access to healthcare data and professionals will enable informed decisions and actions that promote and protect health.
Engage⁺ has been developed to bring this vision to life. We believe that providing families with access to their loved ones’ health and wellness data along with an easy way to communicate with healthcare professionals in Senior Living homes will facilitate better decision making and improve resident health outcomes.
Our mission with Engage⁺ is to connect families to their loved ones and keep them informed, while improving efficiency and time management for nurses and Personal Support Workers in Senior Living.
