Passionate about making healthcare more effective

We believe the current state of the US Health System is sub-par, but it doesn't need to be. Despite having the world's most renowned doctors and hospitals as well as enormous investment (twice as much per individual as any other country in the world), the US ranks 37th in healthcare efficacy according to the World Health Organization. We can do better simply by getting critical information to the right people at the right time and involving patients in their own care.

With our combined experience in both the business world and the healthcare system, we seek to bring open-source principles to the health information exchange. It?s not about lessening security, but about making existing data access more intuitive and effective. Our ultimate vision is to connect all the parties in the Health ecosystem safely and securely.

On a personal note, my mother, husband and I have gone years without proper diagnoses of chronic and acute illnesses that led to failing health and reduced quality of life. Through it all, we saw dozens of doctors at some of the best hospitals in the world. We all had private insurance, a rarity to be sure, but only one of us was covered for the majority of our costs. I am convinced that if all the doctors had had the same information, they could have diagnosed us more quickly. Furthermore, if we had been more informed ourselves, we would have researched better, found more support groups and gotten well faster.

While better connectivity alone cannot solve the nation?s healthcare problem, information is the beginning of change. We believe that by getting the information to the people who need it, we can start making a significant impact.
