Buoy Health

The best way for everyone to get better through scalable, digital healthcare

Buoy is a Boston-based digital health company that uses AI technology to provide personalized clinical support the moment an individual has a health concern. Developed out of the Harvard Innovation Labs by a team of doctors and data scientists, Buoy navigates people through the healthcare system intelligently, delivering triage at scale, and connecting them with the right care endpoints at the right time based on self-reported symptoms.

While our CEO, Andrew, was on rotation during his final year at Harvard Medical School, he saw first-hand how people were misinterpreting their symptoms based on information they had found online. The front door of healthcare, as it's called, was no longer the primary care physician. It was the internet, and it was leading people to make the wrong decisions about their health.

Rotations ended, Andrew took a sabbatical from med school, and that's when Buoy began. Our goal from the early days – to help make the US health system less complicated – hasn't changed. With technology and medical integrity both on our side, we'll continue to wipe out what's not working and reunite people with the clarity they deserve.
