Linehealth is a healthcare startup aiming to solve medication adherence by developing an integrated solution comprising a smart pill dispenser - for the patients, an app - for the caretakers, and a dashboard - for the doctors. Targeting chronic patients and the elder community, this B2B company partnered with Insurance companies, Hospitals, nursing homes and Pharmaceutical Companies to test and distribute the product.  


I co-founded the company with 3 partners, leading all hardware and software design and brand identity. Simultaneously built and managed engineering and design teams in Boston and Lisbon, and led user research and clinical trials. I also had the pleasure of representing the company in over 20 technology and innovation events, was a panelist, mentor and guest speaker, in Portugal, Germany and the USA. 

Linehealth won Best Hardware at LaunchFest 2016 in San Francisco, California, and has 2 utility patents and a design patent.

I founded the company with 2 partners based on my vision. Defined the company’s mission and goals, built a roadmap and business plan, negotiated partnerships and hired writers. Created the brand identity, graphic system and website. I'm editor-in-chief of all the content, but also writer and researcher myself. Our team members currently located in Boston, Lisbon and Barcelona.
