Today, it’s more important than ever to give patients and their care-giving circles the ability to map their own healthcare journeys. Self Care Catalysts derives their success from putting patients first and then extending their platform to help pharmaceutical, biotech and medtech clients streamline their efforts to bring new medicines and devices to market through direct patient access for Decentralized Clinical Trials (DCT) and Real World Evidence (RWE),” said Gabriele Brambilla, CEO and Co-Founder of Alira Health. “The acquisition of Self Care Catalysts is a strategic addition to our growing global portfolio of patient-centric technologies, making Alira Health a leading player in North America and Europe in DCT and patient-centric RWE solutions with over 150 studies run in partnership with over 250,000 patients.”

“Health Storylines helps patients make sense of their healthcare journey through meaningful data that they own and control. Patients choose to donate or share their data for a good cause, whether it is for clinical research, to inform policy makers, to seek help from their care providers with holistic data for better treatment planning, or simply to gain peace of mind,” said Grace Almendras-Castillo, Founder and CEO of Self Care Catalysts. “We share Alira Health’s mission to humanize healthcare and are pleased to become part of a company poised to transform healthcare.”

Self Care Catalysts’ co-founders Grace Almendras-Castillo and Jared Adams will assume leadership roles at Alira Health in the development of digital patient and consumer health solutions in North America.
