Nightingale by Health Care Originals

Health Care Originals, Inc. (HCO) is headquartered in Rochester, NY. We make cardio-pulmonary wearable systems, comprising a full stack hardware and software solution. Our focus has always been on respiratory disease – borne out our personal experience with the debilitating effects of chronic respiratory disease, not only for those diagnosed with the disease, but also their caregivers.

We believe respiratory conditions are under-served, and more needs to be done to understand how best to adapt medications and treatment regimens to the individual, so that they can live their best life, and their caregivers can enjoy peace of mind and freedom, knowing that their loved ones have the tools at their disposal to understand and manage their conditions.

Our Why

Our Co-Founder, Sharon Samjitsingh, has had asthma from birth, and has had many near-death experiences because of it. Through Health Care Originals (HCO), she and her husband Jared have made revolutionizing management of chronic respiratory disease their life’s mission.

We believe respiratory conditions are under-served, and the number of people with respiratory conditions will continue to accelerate past the >500 million people who currently have them, as we deal with the impacts of climate change on health. More needs to be done to understand how best to adapt medications and treatment regimens to the individual, so that they can live their best life, and their caregivers can enjoy peace of mind and freedom, knowing that their loved ones have the tools at their disposal to understand and manage their conditions.

HCO is proud to work with others as we impact the entire care cycle – enabling diversity, inclusion and Real World Evidence through our ADAMM-RSM service for clinical trials, all the way to helping those with asthma and COPD live their best life through our Nightingale Services.
