Papa Pals provide companion care services and support for everyday needs to Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, and commercial health plan members—improving whole health, one personal connection at a time.
Companion care services
We do what technology alone cannot—provide real human connection and support to address loneliness and other social determinants of health.
Lend a hand
We work with clients to measure performance—capturing member-level insights from their own homes, and delivering detailed reporting on utilization, outcomes, satisfaction, and beyond.
Tech has its place, even in services. Our Papa Pals and plan members are supported with their own mobile applications—making it easy to connect, schedule visits, and provide feedback.
Easy to use Papa Care app for members.
Available for iPhone and Android, our Papa Care app helps members schedule visits for themselves or loved ones, provide guidance on needs, and more. Don’t worry; we provide offline support as well via telephone!
Intuitive app to empower our Papa Pals.
Our iPhone and Android apps ensure Papa Pals have all the information they need to deliver a great experience to your members. Using a powerful algorithm, we match members and Papa Pals based on known health conditions and task requirements—ensuring they’re the perfect fit.
Detailed, timely reporting for clients.
Through the apps and post-visit surveys, we ingest member-level data to set objectives for follow-ups, identify gaps and escalation needs, and track performance against goals. We customize reporting dashboards to your organization’s needs.
