About 83bar

We are passionate about providing healthcare solutions to patients and committed to providing activated patients to our clients.

Our Purpose

We bridge the gap between patient awareness and patient action to drive positive healthcare outcomes.

We envision a world where patients are empowered with the knowledge and hope they need to pursue personalized healthcare solutions from innovative life science companies who aren’t satisfied with the status quo.
