Conversations with your doctor are full of meaningful moments — key pieces of advice about how to best manage your care. But if you’re like most people, the details can fall through the cracks. That’s where Abridge comes in — to be a second pair of ears so you can better understand and follow through with your care.

Abridge helps you stay on top of your health, whether you’re at a routine appointment, specialist visit, or annual exam. Simply record the conversation to get started. When your appointment is over, Abridge creates an interactive transcript of the medical parts of your conversation so you can quickly skip to any parts you may want to revisit. Abridge uses computers to transcribe the medical parts of the conversation, so nobody reads or hears the conversation but you.

Understand the most important points
Abridge has your back, from reminding you of medical terminology to identifying important details of your care. The app automatically finds key points like medication instructions and follow-ups for your review. Get definitions for medical terms, right in the context of your conversation.

Share your care
Securely share your conversation with family and others involved in your health. Keep everyone on the same page, even if they were unable to attend the appointment. Everyone can have more peace of mind knowing they can get a quick summary of what was said, and hear the information as if they were present.

Trust your information is secure and will remain private
Abridge is secure and private: All your data is encrypted in transit and at rest, and stored in HIPAA-compliant servers.
You control your information and who it is shared with. We will never sell, rent, or share your personal health information without your consent.
Abridge was developed by doctors, patients, and researchers.


“Abridge helps people better understand their doctor's recommendations, which can improve patient engagement and health literacy.”
Steve Shapiro, Chief Medical and Scientific Officer, UPMC

"Abridge empowers consumers with easier access to a transcript of a clinical encounter and -- more importantly -- the context and tools to help them make sense of it."

Didn’t work

I had a really important conversation I needed recorded. It appeared to have recorded 45 minutes but when I went to play it, my screen just showed “Preparing your conversation” and then just stayed like that. Update: seems to be working now and I was able to hear my recording.

Don’t use for important things

This app is super unreliable and doesn’t load audio from important conversations I’ve had. Will probably not use this app again and I do not recommend because of the data loss I have suffered from this. Unprofessional to say the least
