Rippl Buys Tech Startup for Dementia Caregivers, Expanding Platform

ehavioral tech platform Rippl has acquired a startup aimed at providing information and services for dementia caregivers in its ongoing quest to broaden and deepen its memory care-related services.

Rippl acquired the startup, Kinto, in last month. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In the coming months, Rippl will integrate technology developed by Kinto from the last two years to improve Rippl’s virtual patient and family experience, according to Rippl co-founder and CEO Kris Engskov.

The acquisition also included access to artificial intelligence (AI) tools to leverage data insights to empower care teams to extend their reach, Engskov said.

“Over the coming months, we’ll put many of Kinto’s tools to work within our tech stack and, with the Kinto tech team, have some very big plans for what we can build with AI in the mid-term,” Engskov said in an email to MCB. “Kinto has developed a set of evidence-based interventions and know-how completely unique in the world of dementia caregiving. We’ve always known the caregiver and their individual care was fundamental to successfully caring for a patient with dementia.”

With the acquisition that Engskov called a “game-changer” for Rippl, is set to continue to grow in 2024. That growth includes a “number of new referral partners” in using Rippl’s platform.

“We are looking forward to getting started with this innovative new model that will deliver care to many people who are covered by Medicare and who have never had access to this type of dementia support,” Engskov told MCB.

Last month, Rippl partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association to build a new digital dementia care navigation tool for caregivers and physicians known as the Dementia Care Navigation Services (DCNS).
