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 RECORDINGS
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.

Ratings and Reviews
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!
Developer Response ,
So glad to hear Abridge has been helpful to you! ✨ We'd love to chat with you and learn how we can improve Abridge even more for you. Would you be open to talking with us about this? If so, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for the feedback -- we so appreciate it!
I recently used Abridge during a long consultation with a specialist, and I was so glad that it was listening and taking notes for me, because I would have been completely overwhelmed otherwise! I was super impressed with the quality of the transcription, especially since both the doctor and I were wearing masks, and it had no problems with non-American accents as well. It picked up all of the key medical items, even the ones the doctor mentioned that I didn't even know.
After my appointment, it was so easy to review the information using the key moments! This provided a much more digestible summary for me than the visit summary printout that I got from the doctor. I'm super grateful that this tool exists! Not to mention the beautiful design and great UX!
(And as an aside, I encountered a minor bug when using the app at home, and I was able to easily report it using their support. They were extremely responsive and friendly!)
I love this app and have found it SUPER helpful for my medical appointments. As someone with a chronic illness that involves several systems in the body, I have a bunch of appointments and sometimes they can be overwhelming with a lot of new information thrown at me. It is easy to miss some details that may be important. That is where Abridge comes in because you record the appointment and can go back to listen to either the whole appointment or go back to a certain part of the conversation. The app transcribes the recording and even picks out “meaningful moments” to make it easier to go back and find certain things mentioned like medications. I highly recommend this app especially for anyone who is chronically ill or for your elderly parents etc. The recordings can be shared with family members to keep them in the loop so everyone is on the same page in caring for you and/or your loved one.
