OUR PARTNERS
Abridge - abridge.com

Why leave all the details behind when you leave the doctor's
office, or settle for a printed visit summary that only tells half
the story? With the Abridge app, you record your health care
as it happened, so you can take your doctor's advice home with
you. The app pulls out medically relevant concepts from the
appointments so it's easy to go back and review the information or
share with your loved ones. We recommend it as a tool everyone
should use to help manage their care.
