That’s not the only big news: after 2 years of experimentation with the Agence Régionale de Santé (ARS) d’Île-de-France, the startup is now looking to expand its service throughout France. To do so, Epoca Health can draw on their impressive results: 80% fewer hospital admissions, 90% fewer days in hospital, 80% fewer emergency room visits and, above all, over 97% patient satisfaction.
These results are the fruit of the hard work of our 25 employees, including 15 healthcare professionals, who provide long-term medical and medico-social care.
Epoca Health is more than just a healthcare platform. It’s a solution that relies on two core competencies, blended into a “human and technological” approach:
The founders, Elise Cabanes, a geriatric physician, and Mariana Fernandez, an anesthetist nurse, drew inspiration from their firsthand experiences within our complex healthcare system. This motivated them to develop a solution addressing the increasing demand for high-quality care for our elderly citizens.
As our population ages and the prevalence of chronic diseases continues to rise, there’s an increased demand for unscheduled medical care, leading to overcrowded emergency rooms. Epoca aims to anticipate these crises and avoid unnecessary hospitalizations through its innovative approach, while providing seamless care for aging individuals, particularly those with chronic illnesses.
The startup’s impact is multifaceted:
This investment will empower us to forge synergies with other companies within Mutuelles Impact’s portfolio, such as Wincare, Destia, or Colette, as well as with the members of la Mutualité Française and their respective ecosystems.
Notably, Epoca Health’s services can be extended to patients in healthcare establishments operated by mutual insurers. We eagerly anticipate building these fruitful partnerships!
