VIEW ALL JOBS

While one member of Medic Mobile's field team is traveling 100 miles on rough roads to visit a remote clinic, other members of our team – software developers, health researchers, and project managers – are working with them to fine-tune models, devise new patient interventions, and make time-saving software improvements. Our teammates exhibit unique levels of patience, confidence, and empathy; we work together every day as a distributed interdisciplinary team to improve health outcomes and ultimately save lives.

We launched our first project, providing mobile phones to community health workers in the area around St. Gabriel's. We launched Hope Phones to encourage people to recycle their old phones, with proceeds funding the purchase of new phones and solar chargers for community health workers.
