Our Story

Like many companies, Rhinogram was derived out of a need to solve a problem that had no current solutions. Rhinogram's birth story originates directly from our own practicing doctor, Dr. Keith Dressler. Dr. Dressler experienced the need for a compliant platform to communicate with patients that wanted to text his practice. Since its inception, the platform has been built out to be a feature-complete one-stop-shop with many functionalities that support the entire patient/provider journey. Our mission is to help providers. We have seen how inundated you are with clunky technology and outdated EHR systems that don't do everything you need them to do to effectively engage with your patients. Rhinogram sees the need to fix what so desperately needs to change in healthcare--providing practices solutions that allow you to focus on WHY you got into healthcare in the first place. Let's face it, you didn't get into healthcare to deal with antiquated technology, spend hours playing phone tag, or to try to piecemeal solutions together to fill in the gaps that are currently being ignored by the systems themselves. Let us handle the administrative care, so you can focus on the clinical care. Your team and your patients will be glad you did.
