About Florence

Florence was created in June 2016, and throughout her development, she has evolved from being a simple symptom checker to become focused on two main features with high demand – health tracking and med & pill reminding. She is named after Florence Nightingale, who was the founder of modern nursing. As a chatbot, she is powered by an intelligent automated messaging system. Her main mission is to support individuals monitoring any chosen health & wellness indicator (such as weight loss, pain level or period cycle) as well as to assist them with adherence, education, and motivation regarding their medication, vitamins or birth control pill regimens. All users have to do is to start chatting with her inside any of the commonly used messaging platforms – Facebook, Skype or Kik.
