HRS was founded in 2012 by three college friends in a one-bedroom apartment in NYC. The year before, while pursuing his MBA at Johns Hopkins University, HRS CEO, Jarrett Bauer, discovered his grandmother had been readmitted to the hospital due to an exacerbation in her heart failure. Immediately, Jarrett thought to himself, “how could this happen? There must be a way to avoid readmission.” Leveraging his background in healthcare, Jarrett researched the drivers of hospital readmission: medication adherence, dietary adherence, lack of health literacy, and lack of caregiver support. With this information, Jarrett started creating the new standard of care - HRS telehealth.
