Background of WellCheck

WellCheck Logo

WellCheck, founded by a second-grade teacher, initially developed a two-way notification platform for school lockdowns and emergency drills. During the COVID-19 pandemic, WellCheck pivoted to utilize its cloud-based, HIPAA-compliant platform for wellness screenings. This led to partnerships with health departments and the development of digital solutions for school-based health centers.

Chris Nickerson, CEO of WellCheck, highlights the organic evolution of their platform:

"We started in the school system and expanded during COVID-19 to offer wellness screenings and digital consent management. Our platform digitizes existing processes, gathers crucial data points, and integrates with EHR systems, making it a perfect fit for school-based health initiatives."
