The health system generates a tremendous amount of data - deeply specific data on individuals, and pattern behavior data across massive populations. Equipped with the right adaptive, predictive, and precise data science tools, Healthcare Enterprises and Health Providers can partner with A.I. to eliminate preventable sickness. Care management teams use us to deliver the right care, to the right person, at the right time.

Teddy Cha

Teddy's career has been in leading high-growth, enterprise software product teams (Emissary.io, Clearwell, Signpost, GLG). He and Hai Po were classmates and good friends at MIT, although they never imagined they'd be starting a company together. But once they started learning about healthcare data they were hooked - a messy, giant data set in a messy, giant industry, with an opportunity to eliminate predictable sickness? They couldn't imagine a better use of their time or particular (peculiar?) mix of experiences. Teddy has previously interrupted his startup career with stints through Wall Street (Goldman Sachs), business school (UChicago) and strategy consulting (Bain), which were wonderfully educational and have reminded him to keep being an entrepreneur.
