Healthcare is in a crisis globally.

It costs too much, often unavailable to many, too generic, uses legacy systems, creates walls between patients and care teams, the list goes on.

However, we stand at a moment of monumental change. For the first time since clean water, we have the opportunity to develop healthcare solutions leveraging software and data that can improve outcomes and lower costs.
