Parachute Health - Fullstack Engineer

In the U.S. alone, over 30 million patients per year are prescribed care via paper and fax. The ordering process is long, complicated, and yields an 83% error rate. Discharges are delayed and patients spend extra time in care facilities.

At Parachute Health, we’re pioneering a modern approach to healthcare communication. We’ve built a platform where clinicians, insurance companies, and medical supply distributors coordinate care; empowering everyone to focus on getting patients the treatment they need, when they need it.

We are helping more than 30,000+ new patients monthly. Founded and launched in New York, we’ve grown across 30+ states and partnered with 4 of the top 10 ranked hospitals, 5 of the top 15 largest nursing facility chains, and 5 of the 10 largest home health agencies.
