About us

Our team is passionate about changing the current approach to the ownership of personal health data.

We believe in a world where patients deserve the power to control their health data. The outcome, higher-level patient engagement, better health management and greater potential for positive care resolutions.

Patients and practitioners alike can now have the luxury to direct attention to the more important aspects. Our first priority is always the security and privacy of health data. The integration between ownership, control, privacy and security, provides the platform patients and practitioners need for a fully functional suite of care.

Our Health Data Marketplace creates a novel space for revolutionary research to happen.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are centre stage to power the next generation of discoveries in medical research. Flowing back in the form of education for patient goals. Creating a positive chain reaction for health and wellbeing.
