What do we do?

We are a healthcare tech company focused on connecting patients with healthcare providers primarily through text messaging. Our web-based app allows providers to reach thousands of patients at once, while maintaining a personal connection. You can see a short video with patient stories here: vimeo.com/114095688. As a non-profit we also have a very strong social mission. We focus on underserved patient populations and half of our customers are free and charitable clinics across the United States.
