We create and build patient-centered digital products for healthcare
Founded in 2019, the AppHatchery is a multi-disciplinary team that creates patient-centered mobile apps for healthcare through strategy, user research, design, software development, and clinical study. We are part of the Georgia Clinical and Translation Science Alliance and funded through app projects and by the NIH to advance translational science.

02 HOW WE WORK
The AppHatchery works with Principal Investigators (PIs) across Emory School of Medicine, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Georgia Tech, Morehouse School of Medicine, UGA and other CTSA partners. We apply human centered design principles to build proof of concept apps to test ideas quickly, specifically eschewing complexity e.g., electronic health record (EHR) integration until the digital product demonstrates value.
