About Backpack Health
We believe in health information that’s human, individual, and personal.
Every journey is different, and every person should be able to record theirs in a way that makes the most sense to them. We don’t think of health info as cold, clinical data – we understand it’s the stuff of your life. So, we’d like to help you carry the stuff that matters...to you.
We believe that when information flows easily to and from individuals, providers, and family members, everyone benefits.
That’s why we’ve made simple, secure sharing a priority from the start. It’s also why we’ll never be another silo, where info gets in but can never get out. We want information to move easily and securely to and from Backpack Health so that you can spend less time tracking it down and more time getting the care and support you need.
We believe that health information should speak your language.
We use familiar terms in addition to established medical dictionaries so you can tell your health story from your point of view and keep track of information that comes from providers at the same time. We’re also working to build Backpack Health in as many languages as possible. Can’t find something you’re looking for in our medical or health terms? Let us know! We want Backpack Health to work for everyone.
We’re a group of passionate, creative people building innovative tools to help people better manage their health details, care and communication.
