Spend a few moments with me and think back to the last time you were at the doctor’s office – can you remember what the doctor said? Did you leave the appointment and think to yourself a few hours or days later, what tests was I supposed to have again or what did the doctor say may be causing my symptoms? Have you ever had to repeat the details of your appointments to multiple friends and family members who were curious about the outcome? Did you ever forget the details you were told about a new medication?
If you have answered yes to any of these, I want to show you new and secure app technology that I believe is life-changing for those of us who live with chronic illnesses. Welcome to Abridge.
I first met Abridge founder, Shiv Rao, a few months ago and during our initial call he showed me in real time how Abridge works. I was blown away. I had never seen an app that was so intuitive and could actually help me manage my health. Literally HELP ME. I said, “We have to film this conversation and show it to others in our community” – and that is exactly what we did here. Below is a video of Shiv and I having a “pretend conversation” as if I was in the doctor’s office. You will see the Abridge technology immediately transcribe the key parts of the conversation such medications, diagnoses, and next steps. Plus, you can share the conversation with other people and even save money on prescriptions with GoodRx.
