Finding a home care provider -- let alone the right home care provider -- can be a daunting task; but the HomeHero app hopes to change that exhausting task. HomeHero is partnering up with various hospitals in order to connect patients with one as quickly and effectively as possible. It will also be launching a mobile program to help people monitor the health of their family members under the care of providers hired by HomeHero.

Although HomeHero can be considered a dating app of sorts, it definitely goes beyond that. By partnering up with hospitals directly, these institutions "are incentivized to help prevent repeat hospitalizations," writes Tech Crunch. After that, HomeHero hopes to work directly with insurance providers to help cover the cost of its service.
