Wellframe is a Boston-based digital health company focused on building the next generation of infrastructure for care delivery by combining clinical medicine, artificial intelligence and mobile technology. We’re using our system to deliver more personalized treatments, optimize the management of large patient populations, and dynamically organize healthcare resources around the needs of patients. We work with health insurers, hospitals, device companies, and outpatient clinical settings to bring the highest standards of preventive medicine to patients with complex medical and social needs. In partnership with our clients, we develop and use mobile technology for nurse care management programs. 

Department Overview:

The clinical team at Wellframe works closely with all other Wellframe departments to create clinical tools, programs, and processes that help patients gain access to the knowledge and clinical expertise they need to manage their health needs at any given moment.
