About Dimagi

Dimagi is a social enterprise and Benefit Corporation that builds software solutions and provides technology consulting services to improve the quality of essential services for underserved populations. Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Dimagi partners alongside governments, leading NGOs, and foundations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, and the World Bank to tackle complex health and social inequities. Our open source technology platform, CommCare, is the world’s most widely-used and researched mobile data collection platform for frontline workers. To date, Dimagi’s team of project managers, engineers, and health experts have supported over 2,000 projects in 80 countries.

When COVID-19 came to the US, Dimagi sprung into action. We were among the first on the scene to support technology efforts in the United States, rolling out a web-based contact tracing system for the City of San Francisco in a few weeks. Today, our rapidly growing COVID-19 Response team is working in some of the hardest-hit areas of the United States to roll out statewide and local contact tracing technology.
