We create and implement healthcare services, tools, and ideas that enhance the quality of care and improve health outcomes while maintaining a certain level of independence from the healthcare system.

This is achieved through partnerships with healthcare organizations, care teams, patients, universities, foundations, and non-profit organizations.

Data at the Forefront

We strive to give our health partners actionable information and work with them on enacting improvements. Our data repository bypasses barriers in the health system to get at the bigger picture. Alongside clinical knowledge and scientific research, this forms the knowledge base to help put change into practice.
