Novaheal – Nursing education, but make it smart

09.11.2022

Digital, individual, hands-on - Novaheal accompanies future nurses as an app.

“We believe that education plays a fundamental role in the sustainable functioning of our society. This also applies on a minor scale to the healthcare system. Education empowers the shapers of tomorrow's healthcare system, whether at the patient bedside or at the desk.“ Samuel Bongartz, Novaheal


From their own experience, the founders of Novaheal know how much catching up there is to do in nurse training. After graduating, the team therefore decided to make the path into the profession as smart and suitable as possible for future nurses. Co-founder Samuel Bongartz talks about a profession in a tight spot, digital solutions and their goals in the BRYCK Startup Sprint Healthcare.

Who are you? And what does Novaheal stand for you?
We are Novaheal - and we improve the healthcare system with education. We have developed an app explicitly for nursing trainees that makes it easier and safer for them to get through theoretical and practical training. In this way, we help more people successfully complete this complex and challenging training.


Why does a trainee benefit from your app in addition to regular classes?
We have created a unique combination of theoretical knowledge and practical application in our app. In addition, we offer the advantage that users can set their learning goals individually. This means that from the first day of training, users have a personal assistant in their pocket or on their tablet that provides them with the knowledge of nursing training in an easy-to-understand and tailored way.


Why is nursing in particular in your focus?
Why nursing? That's easy - 2 of us 3 founders are trained nurses. With the app we have created what we missed during our education. We know that it is needed and have experienced ourselves how valuable good and solid training for nurses is because - sooner or later nursing affects us all.


How can Novaheal help shape the healthcare system of the future?
We believe that education plays a fundamental role in the sustainable functioning of our society. This also applies on a minor scale to the healthcare system. Education empowers the shapers of tomorrow's healthcare system, whether at the patient bedside or at the desk.


How do you intend to benefit from the practical approach of the BRYCK Startup Sprint Healthcare?
We believe that the BRYCK- Healthcare Sprint offers a unique opportunity for us as a company and founder in our current phase. The mixture of many years of experience of the BRYCK team from very different areas of business development, the implementation of individual business goals, as well as the close networking with partners from the healthcare sector gives us the chance to go far in the 10-week sprint of the founding marathon.
