About Tell Health

Tell Health is a Health IT company devoted to empowering patients by enabling timely, relevant and clear communication between health care providers and patients and their families. We have reimagined the existing Patient Portal and put patients at the center. Rather than communicating with a single provider, patients can connect and interact with all of their providers, using an all familiar messaging UI. The user- friendly, jargon-free and secure service is underpinned by FHIR and AI. Founded by a physician and an engineer, we are backed by physicians and health IT industry veterans. Our mission is to get people back in control of their healthcare, being fully informed and in possession of their medical records, empowered to take care of themselves and their family.
