About Us

Clear communication is better. 

CommunicateHealth was founded on one core principle: We think people deserve clear and simple information about their health.

We help our clients create products and services that can be easily accessed, understood, and used by the people who need them most. Whether it’s a smart phone app or a pictogram — we will research, design, test, and tweak until we get it right.

The CommunicateHealth family includes a talented pool of plain language writers, designers, usability specialists, researchers, and health educators. We work in integrated teams — and we like a good challenge. Try us.
