Our mission is to leverage technology to help safety net organizations fulfill the essential needs of underserved populations.


We envision a world where all people, regardless of income or background, achieve equitable health outcomes.

Two things drive us at CareMessage: technology innovation and the prioritization of patient needs.

We believe technology can help safety net organizations be more efficient with their time and increase the quality of care and health outcomes for their patients.

Our results tell us we’re right.

We reach millions of underserved patients every month. We are one of the first tech non-profit organizations with a sustainable business model.

Strengthening the Safety Net, Together

We are proud to partner with organizations that share our commitment to helping underserved populations improve their access to healthcare using mobile technology.

We collaborate with national safety net advocacy groups, state and regional primary care associations, and health center controlled networks (HCCNs) to support underserved communities.

Fulfilling the essential needs of underserved populations doesn’t always stop with healthcare. Our work with established non-profit organizations demonstrates the potential breadth of impact CareMessage can have on Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) and health outcomes.

CareMessage is the only patient messaging tool that has published research on improvements in clinical outcomes. We are proud to partner with independent academic medical centers.
