About our company
Healthcare is a $3.2T industry. While clinical care is more advanced than ever, successful patient engagement has proven to be healthcare’s biggest challenge. It’s costing us $33B each year - in avoidable hospital admittances, higher treatment costs, low prescription adherence and preventable deaths. We can do better.
LifeLink’s healthcare-specific technology platform enables hospitals, pharma companies and insurers to transform thousands of patient workflows into automated chatbot conversations.
We’re a passionate team that’s built large-scale enterprise solutions before, and we’re backed by a world-class board.
Our goals are ambitious, and our success will depend on assembling an exceptional team that’s creative, collaborative, and driven.
