Larchmont Resident Dr. Tina Sadarangani Develops Revolutionary App for Caregivers

It’s estimated that 53 million ordinary Americans currently take care of a chronically ill family member, friend, or neighbor. These individuals are expected to handle a lot of responsibilities by doctors and health care systems, such as administering medications and coordinating appointments. 


In response to this challenge, Dr. Tina Sadarangani a nurse practitioner and professor at NYU who resides in Larchmont and is Chairperson of Larchmont Friends of the Family, has developed an innovative and award-winning app called CareMobiTM. The National Institutes of Health has funded this app, which aims to revolutionize day-to-day care management for families.


CareMobi is a centralized hub for families and care team members to share and track vital signs, notes, documents, appointments, medication, and more, all in one convenient platform. CareMobi streamlines communication and organization, ensuring care is not a game of telephone. This makes it easier for everyone involved in a patient’s care to stay informed and up to date. Doctors can then work with families to make better treatment decisions based on what happens at home – where 99% of healthcare takes place.


CareMobi was initially designed to support families caring for a person with dementia, but its versatility extends to anyone in need of coordinated care. Dr. Sadarangani is on a mission to ensure patients and their families are getting optimal, not usual care from their doctors – and CareMobi is a critical part of that.
