Atlas Health was founded in 2013 and is based in Nashville, TN, with extended operations in Southern California. Founder Philip Misiowiec recognized the difficulty in building a healthcare app that is fully HIPAA compliant and sought to reduce the time/cost associated with building similar solutions. The Atlas Health team has extensive experience in information technology, security, cryptography, and healthcare regulations.
In September 2013, Atlas Health was accepted into the Nashville Healthbox business accelerator program. Healthbox is a highly competitive incubator program, based in five cities, and has helped in the launch of nearly 50 new healthcare technology companies. Through 2013, over 1 million patients have been touched by products and services built by Healthbox companies. Healthbox Nashville is backed by HCA and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, who have provided support during the program.
