Codex Health, Inc.
Codex Health provides Allie, a consumer facing mobile application, to help you manage your health and wellness by collecting health-related information from you and providing you with insights and support materials about your conditions. In addition, if you so choose, Codex Health can also share this data with your healthcare provider to facilitate their monitoring of your health and their management of your care plan. Our goal at Codex Health is to help consumers manage their health conditions through a continuum of care, starting outside the boundaries of traditional healthcare providers and linking seamlessly into the healthcare provider at the discretion of the consumer. Codex Health operates as the custodian of the consumer’s health data, and will facilitate portability of this data between healthcare providers based on the decision of the consumer.
