First All-in-One App for Irritable Bowel Disease Launched
In the United States alone, there are over 3 million people living with irritable bowel diseases (IBD) – each facing a unique and individualized experience with the disease. Managing fatigue and inflammation, identifying which foods and beverages are triggers, staying on top of medications, keeping up with doctor appointments – the list goes on and on. The duration, frequency and severity of symptoms varies from case to case, which is why IBD is not clearly understood. In addition, several factors - including diet plan, sleep patterns, and other lifestyle habits – can affect IBD wellness.
Keeping track of these daily habits and IBD symptoms is an important part of better understanding the causes of flare-ups and achieving continuous well-being. Yet, with having to juggle everyday tasks and responsibilities, it can be easy to lose sight of the body’s signals and to ignore symptoms. For this reason, Oshi Health, Inc., has launched the release of Oshi – the first all-in-one mobile app for IBD wellness, which includes features such as symptom tracking, curated content, and expert Q&A.
About Oshi Health, Inc.
Founded in 2018, Oshi Health, Inc. is a digital health company that is revolutionizing how irritable bowel diseases, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, are being managed and treated. The company’s digital platform is designed to meet the needs and preferences of IBD patients, as well as to empower them to manage their disease using digital tools to track, ask, and learn.
Oshi Health, Inc. is also in collaboration with IBD stakeholders and provides them with data that contributes to new advances in treatment and optimization in health care. “We were formally created a few months ago, but Oshi has been in development for close to a year. Even though we only just launched, we’re Series A [stage and] the platform is kind of at the point where a normal startup would be in a year and a half based on this model,” said Daniel Weinstein, digital health veteran and CEO of Oshi Health, Inc.
The all-in-one mobile app designed to navigate life with IBD
Oshi was designed to help patients better understand their IBD by recording their symptoms, measuring their quality of life, as well as keeping track of other factors that may affect the disease such as diet, exercise or sleep patterns.
