We provide a digital platform for the care of tomorrow.
Pflegix has set out to bring a fresh wind into the market of outpatient care for people in need of nursing care and everyday help.
The company was founded in the summer of 2016 in close cooperation with the Department of Nursing Science of the University of Witten/Herdecke and the Department of Artificial Intelligence of the Technical University of Dortmund, and is now active throughout Germany. Pflegix was founded with the goal of enabling older and care-dependent people to have a self-determined life in their own home.The search for caretakers is often complicated and time consuming. In contrast, Pflegix offers fast and unbureaucratic support, and their portal makes it possible to find dependable health professionals online. Via their digital platform, Pflegix connects such people with registered nurses, nursing assistants, and certified senior caretakers, as well as everyday companions and household/cleaning aids. The services of Pflegix "helpers" can be booked on the platform by the hour or the day, regularly or on demand. Since their launch, Pflegix’s helper-network has been rapidly growing, and they now have over 9,000 registered helpers spread all over Germany.
