Who are we and how it all got started. Our story.

Our workspace

Patient communication is broken.

It isn't anyone's fault, per se. Rather, when insanely busy doctors brief anxious patients on what-to-do-and-when, things fall through the cracks. Often, patients go home thinking, "Wait, what am I supposed to do again?" And when things don't get done -- medications, follow-ups, additonal therapies -- everyone loses.

We started Infield in 2009 with one mission: Put that information on a patient's mobile phone. Early, we focused on public health initiatives: Cancer prevention, heart-healthy living, and healthy choices. Our projects were written up in respected journals (JAMA), major media outlets (CNN, New York Times), and supported three IRB-reviewed randomized controlled trials.

Now, we're focused 100% on easing the transition into and out of the hospital. We believe that better communication, through the one device everyone uses everyday, makes care more efficient and betters outcomes. It's what we're 100% committed to.
