Our Story

Our dedication to improving the lives of healthcare professionals forms the cornerstone of our purpose. After witnessing the unique challenges faced by healthcare professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Atalan was founded to turn science and evidence into tools that can help address this pressing issue. Our commitment to serving the healthcare community is reflected in our meticulous approach that is deeply rooted in extensive user research. Over the span of two years, we interviewed healthcare leaders and professionals at more than 140 health systems across the US. Through this process, we learned about the gaps and pain points that are commonly felt. To address them, we have developed a line of innovative products that are driven by cutting-edge science and more importantly, designed by humans for humans in healthcare.
