Our Story

Vital is on a mission to create beautiful, intelligent software for patients and providers. And we're not just saying this...

We're doing it.

Our talented team of AI aficionados, UI experts, medical professionals, and health system executives have built solutions that radically change the way health systems, providers, and patients interact in and beyond the hospital.

Founded by creator Aaron Patzer and Emergency Physician Dr. Justin Schrager, we inform and engage over one million people per year. More than 100 hospitals use Vital to make patients happier, drive growth, achieve better clinical outcomes, and reduce workload for care teams.

Our Values

Our Core Beliefs

These are the guiding principles of everything we do at Vital.

Health Centric

Our goal is to create beautiful, intelligent software for patients and providers:

  • To enable clear, calm, personalized guidance during and after acute or episodic health events.
  • To translate what providers are doing and saying into understandable human terms.
  • To motivate decisions with data and achievable actions across the care continuum.
