About Dina

Dina (formerly Prepared Health) is an AI-powered care coordination platform to help hospitals, health plans and in-home providers identify high-quality partners, enable real-time care collaboration, and activate home-based insights. The Dina platform creates a virtual experience for the entire healthcare team so they can communicate with each other–and help patients and families stay connected–even though they may not physically be under the same roof. The platform helps professional and family caregivers capture rich and timely data from the home, using AI technology to identify unmet needs and recommend evidence-based interventions.

Today, Dina is connected to 750 sites across the U.S. with demonstrated outcomes that dramatically decrease avoidable readmission rates, reduce unnecessary ER visits, and boost caregiver productivity. Based in Chicago, the award-winning platform has been recognized for its creative use of AI technology and innovative user experience. For more information, visit us at: www.dinacare.com.

The Founding Story

After successfully building the largest and most productive Health Information Network in the U.S., two healthcare tech veterans – David Coyle and Ashish V. Shah — reconnected to solve a very personal problem — how to keep their aging parents healthy at home and out of the hospital.

Not long after Ashish’s father suddenly passed in June of 2011, the two began to discuss and research why so many around the world struggle to support a person’s goal of aging in place. To add to Ashish’s experience, David grapples daily with this problem as he cares for his 90-year-old mother in Ireland. The research was compelling and found that those who can often help, home-based providers and family caregivers, lack the knowledge and technology to properly partner with traditional healthcare systems – hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, insurance companies, and medical suppliers. With strong personal conviction, a historical track record of success, and a committed innovation partner in BAYADA Home Health Care, the two launched PreparedHealth in January 2015. They quickly released the enTouch™ network as well as DINA™, a digital nursing assistant and delivered nationally recognized outcomes.  Since their launch, the company has attracted strong national interest, as well as a new Chicago-based client – Centegra Health System.

In 2020, PreparedHealth rebranded to Dina.
