PRAIA HEALTH

About the Name

Praia do Norte, a beach in Portugal, is known for its giant breaking waves that form due to the presence of the underwater Nazare Canyon that creates constructive interference between incoming swells—making the waves much larger.

Praia Health is designed to generate a wave of digital transformation through digital for health systems.

The underwater canyon is like the depth of the data that the platform can tap into.
The constructive interference is identity-driven personalization through SPI and PersonStore.
The enormous swell is like the personalized experiences that will be generated by it.

Co-founder and Partner of Frist Cressey Ventures
If we’re truly serious about improving healthcare, we need to get serious about enabling digital experiences that mirror what we receive and expect as a consumer in our interactions outside of healthcare. Praia Health does this—enabling personalized digital experiences that help patients navigate their health better and easier. Frist Cressey Ventures is excited to again partner with Providence—this time in the growth and expansion of Praia Health.”

The Providence incubation model has some incredible advantages—enabling us to prove out the technology in a real-world setting and work alongside other health systems and technology partners during the incubation process. I’m thrilled with our remarkable funding partners who will help us as we move forward to drive transformation and impact at scale.”

Open and interoperable platforms have been transformative in other industries like fintech - we're excited to back Praia who is bringing the same approach to healthcare. By aggregating all aspects of patient data and personalizing recommendations through a seamless app, we can finally close care gaps and provide a concierge experience to everyone."
