Solutions for Nurses 

To allow hospital nurses to focus on the cases that matter most, we have a dedicated nurse program that is delivered remotely and seamlessly. At the press of a button, the user is connected to a medical professional who will listen and then identify the best solution to their ostomy related health issue. This program is a major step forward in treating the on-going health needs of ostomates.

11 Health has built a team of professional and compassionate nurses dedicated to delivering expert healthcare advice to our SmartCare patients. We provide clinical education to our Patient Coach team, as well as health support to our patients through research, advocacy and technology.  

We now have nurse representation in 36 of the 50 U.S. States and can connect digitally with patients nationwide.
