Employment Type: Full-time

Team: Engineering

At Wellframe, we reimagine healthcare relationships through a new approach that uses high-tech to deliver the high-touch support people need, when and where they need it. We call it Digital Health Management. Our comprehensive suite of Digital Health Management solutions for care management, advocacy, and navigation help organizations forge more meaningful connections with members, across their healthcare journey.

Wellframe was founded to counter a pressing industry problem: the healthcare system has struggled to find ways to support people in between care settings, at scale.

That’s why our team of physicians, clinicians, public health experts, data scientists, and healthcare industry experts ensure our patented technology works in service of the person-to- person connections that make healthcare work best.
