What are we Solving


Doctors have limited consultation times in which they are meant to investigate, diagnose, educate, and treat their patients. With added language and communication barriers, this negatively impacts the patient education and empowerment experience.


Lower income households have limited access to healthcare platforms that aim to improve their understanding of illness and maintenance of health outside of the clinic environment.


Patients deserve tools that enable them to take control over their health.
