What is Jastr?

Jastr, Inc. is a digital health, design-technology startup based in New York City. Our vision is to reimagine every human health experience through the lens of a mobile device; and make each experience accessible by the touch of your fingertips.

Jastr enables the simplification of digital health and health care across five levels of care, empowering anyone to have access to new digital health technologies in real time. Jastr’s embedded hardware and software services aim to be the leading tools for consumer-driven and enterprise solutions for value-based health.

Who is your target user?

Jastr’s IoH products have applications from Geriatric Care to Sports Medicine. We deliver sophisticated and simple-to-use products for daily usage to enable the unobtrusive use of technology for managed health.

Why did you build Jastr? What problem are you taking on?

The call to reinvent the healthcare industry is louder than ever, making now the ideal time to reorganize it in a way that allows for individuals to have the tools, transparency, and knowledge to align incentives with personalized values. We do this by building the Internet of Health.

The Internet of Health (IoH) is the union of Internet software and hardware technology. This union enables modularity, abstraction, and software above the level of each IoH device to one’s physical environment and body; letting anyone solve complex health issues in logical pieces via a new delivery model.

By developing new IoH technologies and connecting stakeholders between hardware and software, we are able to develop valuable health data insights, make it clinically relevant, and accessible by providers and payers for better integration.

How is your product different from what is currently available?

Current digital health products are not clinically relevant and usually comes off as noise to providers. Our software is also designed to for simplicity, elegance, and intuitive interfaces.
