About Us

Healthcare is delivered by teams – nurses, doctors, and staff – that must meet the unique, specific needs of each hospital, clinic, and department. These individuals perform in high-stakes situations, but are often challenged by an inability to keep up with constantly changing information. The resulting stress adds to the strain on a healthcare system that is seeing unprecedented turnover, burnout rates greater than 50%, and a growing number of medical errors (the #3 cause of death in the U.S.).

Elemeno Health is a UCSF and Y Combinator-backed B2B SaaS for healthcare facilities– “a playbook in your pocket,” customized to support frontline teams with bite-sized training and communication at their fingertips. Our efficacy is demonstrated in our published results, passionate clients, and consistent renewals. 

In the last year, we are proud to have been named:

  • ACEP Emergency Medicine Innovation of the Year
  • JHF International Healthcare Safety Challenge unanimous winner
  • AONL national conference top three takeaway, highlighting our empowerment of nurses to improve engagement, outcomes, and costs
