The Life Sciences Company is Proud to Work with Dr. Zeev Kain on Next Generation Value-Based Care and Perioperative Medicine Solutions

mend™, a life sciences company operating at the intersection of nutripharma and digital behavioral health, announced today the company has started to collaborate with Dr. Zeev Kain, President of the American College of Perioperative Medicine. Mend and Dr. Kain will collaborate to work on the Upgraid™ by mend digital health coaching platform and clinical nutrition program, which extends the care delivery model beyond the hospital surgical setting to further recovery in the home.

Set up as an SMS-based and AI-enabled digital care platform, Upgraid™ helps patients and healthcare providers to streamline recovery beyond the hospital walls. Together, Dr. Zeev Kain and mend will aim to define best-in-class care plans and pathways for patient engagement, along with enhanced clinical outcomes.

“We are proud to be working with Dr. Zeev Kain,” says Eziah Syed, Co-Founder and CEO of mend. “Dr. Kain has spent much of his life working to solve urgent problems in modern surgical care, and that is what we aim to do with our Upgraid™ platform. We know with the help of Dr. Kain, we can improve perioperative care and become a key enabler of value-based care.”

Dr. Kain is President of the American College of Perioperative Medicine, a nonprofit organization that he created to advance the education and practice of perioperative care while breaking down silos within the healthcare industry. Recognizing mend as a leader in nutripharma and digital behavioral health, Dr. Kain believes the company is well-positioned in the industry to make an impact at scale.

“There is now a wide consensus that optimal nutrition is essential for optimal healing and recovery after surgery and our role, as healthcare leaders, is to ensure that patients are provided with the best care during the perioperative journey.”

In 2022, mend launched a line of targeted, evidence-based, clinical nutrition products along with mend’s digital health coaching platform, Upgraid™ by mend. In collaboration with experts in the industry such as Dr. Zeev Kain, mend is constantly working to enhance surgical readiness, and provide the best post-surgery outcomes.
