About Sling Health

Sling Health is an operational platform and care team to put primary care operations on autopilot. The platform delivers multi-channel communications to patients while monitoring health plan and system data to trigger automated workflows. For practices, this ensures critical visits get scheduled and care gaps are closed based on payer recommendations while much of the administrative workload is automated. This leads to more personalized patient care, improved margins, and closer health plan alignment to manage total cost of care. For more information, please visit
