Our Mission

We elevate quality by empowering frontline staff with custom point-of-care microlearning and engaging caregivers as collaborative interprofessional teams. We democratize access to best practices, radically reducing medical errors and enabling every healthcare professional to provide the best care possible to every life they touch.

Who We Are

 

We are doctors and nurses: patient care has been our life, and we understand the challenges to delivering safe care better than anyone.

We are patients and families: we have experienced firsthand the effects of care variation and patient harm.

We are technology leaders: we know knowledge is power, and we are laser-focused on enabling every frontline caregiver to be at their best, every time.

We span generation, race, gender, and politics. 

 

We empathize with patients and the dedicated frontline staff who care for them every day.
