Thrive Health is on an important mission: to make healthcare work better for everyone. We’re creating digital healthcare technology that enables more efficient, engaging care for patients, and empowers providers with the tools they need to do great work.
  • Thrive Health offers a digital care coordination platform that allows you to easily and rapidly create and unify care journeys for patients, their families, and healthcare providers to improve clinical outcomes.
  • The platform is designed to connect journeys, people, and data across the whole continuum of health.
  • Thrive Health enables a patient's health story to follow them as they navigate care through the health system. The platform centralizes the information for the patient and also provides valuable health insights.
What does this technology look like? Here’s a sneak peak:
  • A first-of-its-kind interactive patient engagement tool for breast cancer survivors
  • A surgical optimization care journey that enhances patients’ experiences as they prepare for surgery
  • A mental health and wellness journey that guides patients in self-care
  • A clinical waitlist intervention tool that helps chronic pain patients get appointments with providers sooner
