About Us

Circle Women’s Health Platform powers free smartphone apps for the Chief Medical Office of the Home (a.k.a. mom) developed by the Providence Consumer Innovation Group (CIG) at Providence Health & Services in Seattle, Washington. The Circle app was made by a team of consumer product industry veterans from Amazon, Microsoft, Proctor & Gamble, WebMD, Dell, eBay, and Nuance, working alongside dedicated clinicians to solve problems in the healthcare industry with disruptive technology. And when we go home, we’re parents: we know what moms are concerned about because we’ve been there ourselves.

The Consumer Innovation Group creates health-related businesses in areas such as women’s health, senior services, and chronic disease. CIG partners closely with Providence caregivers and patients to create new services and tools designed to support a patient’s ongoing health between episodes of care.
