Ever forget the details of your doctor’s advice? From routine check-ups to specialist visits, Abridge helps you stay on top of your health by catching all the details you may have missed during a medical appointment. Whether you’re managing your own care or trying to keep up with a family member’s health, Abridge helps you get organized and more prepared.

Focus on listening more closely to your doctor, therapist, or nurse’s recommendations, and don’t worry about having to remember the specifics or take notes. With Abridge, you can feel more confident in the next steps and plan for your health.

Easily record your next health conversation, whether it’s at your doctor’s office, at home with a nurse, or in the hospital. Abridge uses computers to transcribe the medical parts of the conversation, so nobody reads or hears your conversation but you. Quickly skip to the moments you want to review and replay. Get another chance to review crucial medical advice -- whenever, wherever.

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. Keep all your important medical details in one place.

Extend your circle of care by securely sharing your health details with family and others involved in your health. Even if they were unable to join you at your appointment, you can all have peace of mind knowing they can get a quick summary of what was said, and hear the information as if they were present.

“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."
Aneesh Chopra, President, CareJourney, and former U.S. CTO (2009-2012)

“When a patient first hears the word "cancer," they blank out the rest of the discussion. Abridge handles remembering what the doctor says, so you can focus on what questions need to be asked.”

Best. Medical. App.

This is a game changer when it comes to remembering things your doctor said, but not having to later sort through a long audio file without meaningful moments highlighted if you simply made a voice memo. Also allows for handy organization of all your visits so you don’t have to think “when was that when we...” with the titles and tag functions. Especially if you don’t have anyone to accompany your doctor appointment, to be able to debrief with afterward, this is super helpful to be able to be present in the moment with the doctor and have a meaningful discussion, without being distracted by trying to take notes and remember everything that was said during the visit. It will revolutionize your doctor appointment experience!! Especially if you have a complex medical history and a lot of doctor appointments, like me. But even for simple cases, it keeps everything organized and right at your fingertips. Can’t recommend it enough! If skeptical, just try it, it’s free!

Love it!!

This app has seriously been a lifesaver. Our baby was recently diagnosed with a congenital heart defect in utero. We have met with 8 doctors in the span of 2 weeks to discuss some serious things. It has been so incredibly helpful to have this running the entire time. I know that when I get home, I can listen to every word so I can begin to grasp and plan for what our future holds. Looking at the transcriptions and highlighted terms makes it easy to scan though and find the parts of the conversations mentioning the information I’m wanting to reference again. With this running in the background, I know I won’t miss anything so I can be present in the appointment with the Dr.s as we plan my son’s treatment. And I know that as I’m just trying to absorb some shocking and unexpected information, I won’t miss a thing because abridge is getting it all for me.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful app!

How did we do it before Abridge?

There is nothing more important than remembering the details of your appointment or instructions with the doctor, pharmacist nutritionist, or diabetic counselor. It is equally important to be present at your appointment and listen to what is being explained or discussed. Abridge makes this easy for you. This app is for all age groups who need to record the conversation with the healthcare provider/pharmacist so that sharing the information with a caregiver or specialist is seamless and accurate. The recording is easily accessed for review to make sure you heard the instructions correctly. I recommend this app for everyone including healthcare professionals.
