Fast, free software for clinicians to manage patients with hypertension & diabetes.

Simple is designed to support large-scale hypertension and NCD management programs. The app is actively used in 5,537 public health facilities in India, Bangladesh, and Ethiopia to manage 1,216,323 patients with hypertension and diabetes — updated Nov 1, 2021.

Healthcare workers record every patient's visit in an app, managers receive daily reports to monitor progress, and patients can chart their own BPs and blood sugars.
