Prepped Health provides an approach to developing mobile health platforms that help patients prepare for their journey with serious illness, leading to better health outcomes and a high quality of life for the patient and their loved ones.

Prepped is a mobile application that generates helpful, timely suggested questions for patients and caregivers to ask their clinical providers. The app uses a strength in numbers in approach – Prepped crowdsources questions submitted by national experts, patients, caregivers and other users to recommend the best questions for the patient based on the patient’s profile and where they are in the disease process. Current versions of Prepped are focused on patients with cancer and/or COPD.
