Co-created by doctors, patients, and caregivers, the Abridge app helps patients and their families directly record their health care conversations, so they can take their doctor’s advice home with them. After the visit is over, the Abridge app creates a transcript of medical mentions. The transcript can be used as a way to navigate the audio, and patients can tap on moments they want to replay. They can also share it with family and their care team, to help them stay in the loop.
Loved by patients, caregivers, and clinicians.
