A $600 billion problem
Why do we do what we do.
Our Mission of inclusion is to make healthcare information understandable to everyone regardless of their language, vision or ability to read. And to empower patients and their caregivers to understand and better manage their conditions.
In the United States today, 130 million people struggle to understand basic written instructions and 1 in 5 of us go home to a family that speaks a language other than English.
We know that when you take care of one patient you are taking care of the whole world because we are extensions of each other emotionally and economically. We will make the best product for everyone including the percentage of the population that is normally ignored and left behind.
81% of patients age 60 and older at a public hospital could not read or understand basic material. – Williams

People with limited health literacy skills are more likely to have chronic conditions and are less able to manage them effectively. – Institute of Medicine
1 in 5 patients go home to a family that speaks a language other than English. – US Census Bureau
