The story behind NurseBuddy

Both Nursebuddy founders, Simo and Antero, have family members and friends working in the home care sector in various roles. They learned that home care management was a real struggle: current systems and practices for coordinating care and sharing important information between several stakeholders are poor and cause many problems.

They were both  looking to build something with a large societal impact, the challenge with home care presented an interesting problem to solve. In order to gain a deep understanding of user behaviour and needs, they started joining care workers on home visits and observing coordinators in the office.

These hands-on experiences provided the critical insights that would later help them build the first version of Nursebuddy.
