What We Do
We make it easy to discover health-related technology that gives you better choices to be as health, safe, and independent as you can be.
Every day, millions of people strive to be safe, well, and look after those they love.
These days, we're living longer, with more health challenges, and growing pressure on the health system. But the next chapters in this story bring a lot to be hopeful for. In addition to health professionals and researchers working tirelessly, there are extraordinary advances in digital health and telehealth, wearables, remote monitoring, safety at home, and assistive technology. Billions are invested in health technology every year, but it's increasingly hard to know what's possible, to find across hundreds of providers and sources, to know if it's good, and to get outcomes.
helloEd is a marketplace that intelligently brings together the world's health, home, and assistive in one place, helping you understand it and get outcomes. The place where individuals come to get choices back, families come to find ways to help and be closer, and health and care providers stay across and combine their expertise with what's possible for people between visits.
Our vision is more than this, it's to change the way the world thinks about what's possible for everyone, regardless of age, health, or disability - when given the best care and access to the world's best health-related technology.
How We Do It
Focus on People
We're thinking of you, your families, and health professionals and giving you choices to make new and better outcomes possible. Few people wake up with a health or life challenge and wish they had 'technology'. But there is an important about part of being human, that technology can help with.
A concern when you go home from the hospital..
How your mind wanders to a loved one when they're not answering the phone..
Being told you have a chronic disease, and wanting to help yourself
From a child with a health condition or early-stage dementia, and not willing to accept limitations before they come
Scan & Assess
We cover hundreds of sources and providers, brands you'd know, and new providers, and emerging ones. We scan for product types, condition-related tech, awards, medical research and approvals, and provider releases to name a few.
Then we assess the likelihood it's good, on 10+ factors.
Not all factors will rate highly, for us to list the product. For example, there's not medical approval for an Amazon Echo Device, even though it can help with care, dropping in, medication reminders, and independent living via voice control.
eg. ecg, falls, alerts, ease of sharing, straps, accessibility

Apply to Needs & Circumstance
We use a helloEd algorithm to match the technology products to
needs (eg. communications, reminders, help, health, independence)
conditions (eg. respiratory, heart, brain injury, dementia, autism spectrum)
places (home, out, carry or wear), and
people (babies, children, adults, seniors)
eg. Cardiovascular may mean heart monitoring, alerts, and medication. Dementia may mean communication, help or locating, health monitoring, and home safety. Autism may have a higher likelihood of learning, organization, and seizures.
Mental health, loneliness, sleep, music, stress - well that relates to most of us.
