MiSalud, which means My Health in Spanish, aims to make healthcare more inclusive by offering personalized healthcare services to US Hispanics through its mobile app and platform. Although Hispanics account for 20% of the US population — and in states like California and Texas, that number goes up to 40% — most of them don't have access to Spanish-speaking physicians in their communities.
