Twistle, a healthcare technology company founded in 2011, automates patient-centered, HIPAA-compliant communication between care teams and patients to transform the patient experience, drive better outcomes, and reduce costs. An automatic navigation (GPS) system for health, Twistle offers “turn-by-turn” guidance to patients as they navigate care journeys before, during, and after a care episode. Patients are engaged in their own care and follow best practices, communicate as needed with their care teams, and realize measurably better outcomes. Twistle integrates sophisticated automation with multi-channel communication, engaging patients through secure text messaging, interactive voice response, patient portals, or the health system’s digital applications.
Our Vision. Why We Do What We Do.
Every patient: activated, supported and reassured.
Our Mission. What and How We Do It
We empower care teams and reduce care variation by automatically keeping patients on track with their care plan.
Our Core Values. What We Believe.
We make decisions based on what is in the best interest of the patient, even if it means going the extra mile to explore alternatives with our customers.
We continually pursue and apply knowledge to grow and evolve ourselves and our company, and inspire patients to achieve optimal quality of life.
We selflessly step up beyond our roles to propel the care team to success.
We respectfully and responsibly communicate information, whether positive or negative, to enhance trust and decision-making. We embrace humility and vulnerability to contribute authentically.
Leadership Team. Who We Are.
