What is Gordy Health?

Gordy Health is a heart health technology and services company offering virtual cardiology care. Our mission is to save and improve lives through better heart care. We will first focus on lowering high blood pressure and treating hypertension for patients across the US.

Why Gordy Health?

Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the US. Someone dies every 48 seconds from heart disease. Nearly half of U.S. adults have high blood pressure (BP), and only about 1 in 4 have it under control. High blood pressure leads to heart disease, stroke and kidney failure.
There are treatments (clinical care, medications, and lifestyle adjustments) to help control blood pressure, but many people do not use these treatments because traditional blood pressure management is hard to access, inconvenient, and confusing.
Essentially, we know what we can do to save lives, we just aren’t doing it. Gordy is setting out to change this.

Managing blood pressure at a large scale will require several product components:

  • At-home blood pressure monitoring
  • Telemedicine visits
  • Online pharmacy
  • Timely, accurate data flow between patients and their care team
  • Timely, effective communication between patients and their care team

Gordy Health will package our technology and services to manage high blood pressure and sell to the market through several different channels:

  • Physician practices that are primarily fee for service serving large Medicare populations
  • Physician practices, provider groups, and Accountable Care Organizations that are risk-bearing (acting like insurance companies)
  • Directly to consumers
  • Health insurers
Today, Gordy Health is serving patients by partnering with a 3rd party provider of Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) technology and services. This partner manages device logistics (acquiring, storing, shipping, tracking blood pressure monitors) and provides a clinician and patient web application to access and track data from the BP monitors.
Gordy wishes to own and develop all the software needed for the complete Gordy Health offering and use a 3rd party provider only for device procurement and logistics.

User Personas

Gordy User Personas

Customer Journey Mapping

Customer journey mapping is a process of visualizing and understanding a customer’s experience as they interact with a business or brand. It involves identifying each touchpoint a customer has with the business, understanding their needs and emotions, and using that information to improve the overall customer experience.

Brand Guidelines

Brand guidelines create a unified voice for the company as well as help establish its identity and differentiate it from the competition. Carefully crafting, sustaining and maintaining these brand guidelines will ultimately keep a company competitive and successful.

Components

Components are reusable design elements that can be used to build interfaces. When you change a component, all instances of that component in your design will update automatically. This helps maintain consistency and reduces time and effort spent on manual updates.
