Our work has produced demonstrable results, with several large health insurers reporting significant reductions in hospitalization rates by up to 44%. Our ambition is to be more than just another digital health startup; we aspire to be a category leader in the $88B health outcomes market, singularly focused on improving the lives and medical outcomes of historically hard-to-engage populations.
