About us

Protera Health is a patient-facing platform that transforms patient engagement and outcomes by leveraging meaningful data


Our background

Protera Health was formed out of a partnership with the Henry Ford Health System with the mission of leveraging meaningful clinical data in order to improve health care outcomes and costs. Unlike other data-driven health care companies, we focus on engaging patients with outcomes that matter most to patients, such as patient reported outcome measures​.

The founding team of Protera Health is unique in its expertise in PROM delivery, patient engagement, and clinical informatics, with prior work featured in the New England Journal of Medicine.
