SANEsuite – Electronic Health Record (EHR)

Domestic violence and abuse affects mostly women, but also men, in multiple ways. Physical and sexual abuse usually make the headlines, but domestic abuse also includes economic, emotional, psychological, and digital control by perpetrators. However, victims of abuse almost always suffer from physical or mental pain after an incident. Emerging technology startups are developing solutions to improve the condition of abuse victims before, during, and after domestic violence incidents.

SANEsuite is a US-based startup that provides technology solutions to help empower survivors of trauma and to better equip the medical, legal, and support professionals who care for them. SANEchart is a device-agnostic cloud-based EHR that gives forensic nurses and other healthcare professionals a no-cost solution for documenting patients’ condition following sexual assault and intimate partner violence. SANEchart also implements recommendations suggested by the National Training Standards for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examiners.

Hello Cass – Chatbot

In today’s highly digitized world, in particular, younger people depend increasingly on their smart devices for information, entertainment, and communication. When young people face domestic abuse, they naturally seek solutions from their mobile or computers. However, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the volume of information, and misinformation, available online. This prompts artificial intelligence startups to build chatbots that provide abuse victims with all needed and relevant information in an empathetic manner.

Australian non-profit Hello Cass is a short message service (SMS) chatbot providing discreet access to localized information and support for people affected by family and sexual violence. The chatbot offers guidance on available counseling services, the legal system, safety planning, and building stronger relationships. Moreover, Hello Cass allows survivors to ask questions about domestic violence anonymously and ensures the safety of their data.

VictimsVoice – Legal Documentation

It takes time and effort to process incidents of domestic violence. Globally, domestic violence typically goes unreported, but more and more survivors are finding the support to speak up and act. Social impact startups enable abuse survivors to take the next step and go to court to seek justice. Moreover, technology allows victims to thoroughly and carefully document their evidence to build a strong case that holds up in court.

VictimsVoice is a US-based startup that provides a legally admissible way for victims to document abuse incidents in a safe, secure, consistent, complete, and private manner. The VictimsVoice Progressive Web App (PWA) guides survivors through a series of questions to collect all pertinent information to make it admissible in a US court of law. PWA also allows for image and video uploads and allows survivors to have a single source for all their documents.

FreeFrom – Financial Support

Legal challenges require money. For many abuse victims, it is not possible for them to be financially independent of their abuser. Technology is a powerful tool to raise funds since it is easy to reach a wide audience and make a donation with a mobile phone or computer. Emerging impact startups are working on tools to help raise funds to support survivors of domestic violence and abuse.

The US-based non-profit FreeFrom integrates financial capacity building services into the movement against domestic violence. FreeFrom offers several tools for capacity building and fundraising for those affected by domestic abuse. For example, the Compensation Compass is a tech platform that equips abuse survivors with the knowledge and support they need to pursue economic justice for themselves. The platform guides survivors through their legal options for reimbursement and financial compensation remedies in the aftermath of abuse.

GuardDV – Real-Time Safety Monitoring

Winning a case in court does not automatically guarantee the safety of domestic abuse survivors. This is especially true when the courts rule for monetary compensation or issue protection orders. Therefore, emerging startups are developing tools and mobile apps that ensure the physical and digital safety of abuse survivors. For example, apps send out proximity alerts when offenders get too close to their victims.

GuardDV is a Puerto Rico-based startup that develops security innovation tools such as smart monitoring and facial recognition-based solutions for domestic violence. The startup’s solution includes a mobile app that both the abuser and the survivor are court-mandated to install. GuardDV then creates a safe-zone composed of three security perimeters that are designed to trigger automatic notifications in case of a violation of the protection order. Further, the safety-zone perimeters follow the survivor wherever they go. If an offender enters the final safety perimeter, GuardDV visually displays the location of the offender on the survivor’s map in real-time.
