Abridge is a company founded by patients, doctors, researchers, and technologists. We believe that patients should have the power to control their health information through technology. Patients should also be an equal partner in relationships with their care providers. We leverage groundbreaking technologies to help people remember the important details from their health conversations, so they can better follow their care plan. With more context and understanding of medical conversations, we hope to help everyone achieve better health outcomes. We put people-centered design into practice. Our mission is to bring context and understanding to every medical conversation so people can stay on top of their health. Abridge was created for everyone, with a mission to help us all better understand our health conversations, whether at home or in the hospital. The notion of being patient-centered often rings hollow in healthcare today. We aim to always act responsibly and in service of others, and to do no harm. We ask ourselves on a daily basis: is what we’re creating for the benefit of the patient? Everyone’s health journey is unique, so we meet people where they are and for what they need. Health care is inherently human, so we build technology to improve—not replace—your existing care. We focus on using technology to bring new utility and outcomes in service of the clinician-patient relationship. Trust is the most important currency to us and we strive to build trust between Abridge and anyone using our services. We hold ourselves accountable to our own Digital Hippocratic Oath and to a HIPAA-compliant data storage and processing protocol for anything captured and shared through our platform.

I am a God fearing individual ,and I’m also a father to two beautiful kids, a boy and a girl. I worked for Tekkie Town as a Sales Assistant and I was chosen as the best Sales person for the entire Mpumalanga province. I also worked for the Department of agriculture as a Data capture. I have a passion for sports, football is one of my favourites and one day I wish I can own a soccer team. While I was in high school, I always wanted to be a lawyer but due to financial constraints I could not become one. My interest in the justice system came when I realised that the late former president Mr Nelson Mandela was also a lawyer representing his people. I wish one day I could give back to my community and its people because my community gave us the likes of the late Steve Bantu Biko, one of the BCM Members who fought for the people of South Africa. My community is one of the underdeveloped communities of this country, but I know that one day all of this will change because I know that with education anything is possible. When a child is educated communities will change for the better and if one community changes, then our country will change for the better as well and poverty will be no more. Education topped with one’s perseverance is the key to a bright future for all. With this pandemic people have lost their jobs and in some households you find that no one is working and people resort to drugs and alcohol, some get depressed to a point of taking their own lives. If we can start developing jobs for people, our continent would become a better place for us all. Being part of an initiative that supports the empowerment of those less privileged is one of my greatest wishes. I will be glad if all my wishes do come through because nothing is as important as education and hard work, and an educated country means a better world for us all.

Rome wasn't built in a day. I’m of a very friendly nature and love to be with people who aren’t selfish. I am ambitious and will do anything to achieve my aim - "The Universe applauds action not thought" I’m of a very adventurous nature and love to find good in everything I see. There are many things that make us depressed or upset, but that doesn’t mean that we stop living. You dust yourself off, honor the difficult times for the lesson it taught you, and walk away stronger and wiser. Independence and confidence were key in my life from a young age with venturing to the UK straight after school, and eventually ending up in Cape Town as my dream destination to live a happy balanced life where beautiful sunsets are part of your everyday life, and reminds you that dreams do come true. My professional life started as a labourer painting parks in the dire UK winter weather to Insurance consultant for a huge corporate company. Getting to know me over time it became clear that I adapt quickly and take pride in everything I do as I strive to leave everything and everyone better than you found them. Covid19 and the drastic changes that came with it has been the most challenging and rewarding time of my life. With a system that failed us allin so many ways, living a financially stable life is nearly impossible but forced me to get grounded with nature and realize that the best things in life are truly free. My senses for nature, animals, and my overall humility enhanced drastically. We are all just reminded once again that nothing ever goes as planned and that losing everything including your mind might be necessary to make you realize what a strong, resilient, and galactic species we truly are. Realizing this, I am now more than ever ready to spread love and kindness whilst challenging myself with new adventures that push me out of my comfort zone. There is no other time than the present that truly matters. And in this moment I am excited to change my reality and the lives of those around me.
I am a fun loving guy! I am a lover of spirituality, people, animals, arts, music, philosophy, psychology, books and technology!
Cormed Clinic officially opened its doors on October 1992 and established itself as one of the leading private hospitals in the region over the years. Cormed is a private company with its shareholders and directors. Cormed is the brainchild of Dr. Corrie Lategan. He and several shareholders' financing led to the establishment and management of the clinic. Dr. Corrie's son, Dr. Pieter Lategan later took over the management. He, in turn, faced further challenges and development and grew Cormed as a within-limits, high-average clinic with high expectations and prospects. The clinic originally started as a day clinic but is now registered as a hospital with an obstetrician as well as a high-care unit. The clinic also offers medical, general surgery and after-hours consultation service. The clinic also has access to an X-ray department, laboratory, physiotherapist, pharmacy and Corcafé Coffee Shop. Several doctors also established their consultation rooms in and near the hospital. Cormed has well-qualified and friendly nurses, admin and housekeeping staff with dedicated service who take care of every patient who visits the clinic. Cormed strives to provide a personal service to the public. They provide care and support to all patients who use their services. Every patient's needs are taken care of. "Jessica's Wall of life" can also be found at Cormed. This project is for moms who are not in the position to care for a newborn baby. The baby can be left in the available sheltered space, after which the childcare unit will find a new home for them.
Cuori 3.0 è un’associazione nata per svolgere attività di beneficenza e supporto sociale indirizzati a persone in attesa di trapianto cardiaco, cardio-trapiantati e alle loro famiglie, un punto di riferimento per chi si accinge ad affrontare questa grande sfida, una sorta di guida lungo il percorso verso la rinascita. La Vision di Cuori 3.0 si basa su un approccio “leggero”, ironico, a volte persino dissacrante alla malattia, perché con il sorriso e la speranza anche le prove più ardue fanno meno paura. “Prendete la vita con leggerezza, che leggerezza non è superficialità, ma planare sulle cose dall’alto, non avere macigni sul cuore.” Cuori 3.0 nasce dalla volontà di 7 ragazze: Cristina, 2 volte cardio-trapiantata, e le sue amiche più care, per dare supporto a chi si trova nella stessa situazione, partendo dalla propria esperienza personale. Mettendoci non solo l’impegno ma anche la faccia, per dar vita ad un’associazione che abbia anche un volto, anzi, sette: Cristina, Elena, Eleonora, Elisa, Sara, Sharon, Valentina. Hearts 3.0 is an association created to carry out charity and social support activities aimed at people awaiting heart transplant, cardio-transplant recipients and their families, a reference point for those who are about to face this great challenge, a sort of guide along the path to rebirth. The Vision of Hearts 3.0 is based on a "light", ironic, sometimes even irreverent approach to illness, because with a smile and hope even the most difficult trials are less scary. "Take life lightly, that lightness is not superficiality, but gliding over things from above, not having boulders on your heart." Hearts 3.0 was born from the will of 7 girls: Cristina , twice cardio-transplanted, and her closest friends, to give support to those who are in the same situation, starting from their own personal experience. By putting in not only the commitment but also the face, to give life to an association that also has a face, indeed, seven: Cristina, Elena, Eleonora, Elisa, Sara, Sharon, Valentina .

My name is Glorymar Hernandez, but I prefer to be called “Glory”. I was born in the capital of Venezuela, Caracas, and grew up amid the crowds of the city, the tranquility of the Andean mountains and the joy of the Caribbean coast. A mixture that has taught me to enjoy wherever I am, that aroused my curiosity to know the world, and that has helped me to adapt, with relative ease, to changes. I have a degree in Philosophy, my research works are in Philosophy of Language. Since 2019 I have been working as a Spanish teacher. I decided to start teaching my mother tongue thanks to my experience learning other languages. I had the opportunity to live for a year in Ireland, where I went to learn English and, currently, I am in Italy, where I have had the opportunity to learn Italian. These experiences allowed me to realize that, although seeking perfection when trying to “speak like a native” is the ideal, what really matters is being able to communicate, make ourselves understood and be open to the experience of knowing other cultures and understand that there are many different points of view. Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work in different contexts such as banking, outsourcing consular procedures, and teaching at university level. The biggest lesson I learned from these experiences is that I am not an office person. I prefer to own my time and have the freedom to work wherever I am. For this reason, I have decided to dedicate myself to teaching Spanish online and to enter the digital world. I consider myself a very curious and versatile person, that is why in my free time I enjoy handcrafting (such as sewing or knitting), volunteering, being in contact with nature, and trying to learn new things, like playing the guitar. Regarding my geographical preferences, the beach and the mountains are my main refuges, because I can escape from the noise of the city and connect with myself. That is why I would like to be able to live with my husband on a mountain, not far from the sea.
We help clinics improve outcomes by sending their patients personalized information and reminders. For example, we send colonoscopy patients instructions to help them arrive prepared. We send patients custom content for upcoming appointments and procedures to help them arrive prepared and informed. This has proven impacts on compliance and outcomes, saving clinics thousands. After medical visits, we use diagnosis information in EHRs to send post-visit content that can help a patient manage their condition and understand the necessity of follow-ups. Using information in electronic health records, we identify patients who may need to come in (for example for a colonoscopy) and allow physicians to send patients content or reminders to come in.
