How it Started

A few years ago, Sensal Health's co-founders, both pharmacists, found themselves deep in a discussion about the health of their aging parents living many time zones away, the challenges of monitoring their treatments for multiple chronic issues, and ensuring that they were receiving timely medical interventions. Their discussion turned to seamless medication management in clinical trials and clinical practice before coalescing into a vision of the future in which healthcare providers and other caregivers are more empowered, one in which they can remotely monitor patients for adherence and overdoses and deliver timely interventions that benefit patients, healthcare providers, and payers.

Sensal Health evolved from this conversation.​ Sensal combines two words that capture the safety and efficacy that medications are meant to promise patients and clinicians, "sentinel" and "salubrious." "Sentinel" refers to a custodian or guardian, and "salubrious" is synonymous with healthy and rejuvenative.

What Drives Us

As physicians, pharmacists, and clinical researchers, we know that medication adherence rates continue to be a challenge, and that this is further exacerbated with the rise in virtual healthcare delivery.  Clinicians have a powerful and unique bond of trust with their patients. For this reason, we believe that clinicians are the central enabler of high-quality patient care.

Our mission is to empower these enablers: We are committed to developing certified solutions that are accurate, reliable, and seamless - solutions that clinicians, CROs, and others in the healthcare community trust and rely upon to enable their mission to provide the best possible care for their patients, and best possible outcomes for their systems.

Our Team

The Sensal Health team combines decades of experience across all aspects of pharmacy (including clinical, behavioral change, retail, manufacturing, formulation, regulatory, and specialty products), medical expertise (dermatology and primary care), engineering (hardware, software, user centered design), program management, marketing, and commercialization of technology.
