Patients are frustrated with being told what to do, and primary care practices are overwhelmed trying to achieve improved outcomes while maintaining large panel sizes. The only scalable solution to our chronic disease epidemic is to empower patients to develop self-efficacy and become part of the healthcare team.

Twine is a cloud-based collaborative care platform (iOS, Android, Web) that engages patients as apprentices of clinician coaches. Patients co-create plans with coaches using powerful shared decision making tools. They then gradually develop competency in managing their diseases through virtual interactions with their coaches until they become masters themselves.

Our team’s 6 years of research at the MIT Media Lab showed dramatic changes in patient behavior and unparalleled outcome, cost, and experience improvements. Now, patients in Twine's 4 active pilots typically achieve goal blood pressure in only a month, eliminating office visits and driving down costs.
