About Us

Rinicare is a clinician-led digital health company focused on improving clinical risk prediction and, therefore, patient safety. Our growing range of solutions help build confidence in a patient’s near-term clinical condition, supporting discharge decisions and informing earlier clinical interventions to help prevent adverse events.

Our portfolio has been developed to blend seamlessly with clinical pathways, integrate with existing IT infrastructure and interface with the relevant data stream. By using real-time data analysis, we enable an earlier and potentially more effective clinical response to be considered, reducing avoidable harm and enabling cost savings.

We ensure that both patient and end user needs are at the forefront of our work, and that every solution blends seamlessly with existing care pathways. Rather than technology for technology’s sake, this is technology to support the clinician, improve patient care, and reduce the burden on care providers.
