Hello, We’re DoctorLingo. We’re Glad You’re Here.

Read About Us:

We exist to bridge the gap in communication between the patient and healthcare provider. Are you tired of trying to understand the medical jargon, abbreviations, acronyms and slang? So are we. We are a crowdsourced hub of all things medical terminology. Doctorlingo serves two purposes. The first is to provide a centralized resource for the thousands of acronyms, jargon, and difficult to understand language of medicine. As medical records become more and more available, Doctorlingo also provides an open JSON API that allows programmers to develop applications for automated text translation from Medical language to plain, easy to read, English. We are dedicated to furthering medical education and improving patient’s understanding of their disease processes.
