Technology has given us more information and opportunity than ever before. It’s changing what healthcare means to businesses and people. The amount of human data collected by new technologies in the world today is incredible. If only we had a way to put it to good use.

Imagine using advance analytics to model how human behavior leads to disease and finding insights that predict upcoming health changes. What if we could organize data to make better choices about health? To predict how health might look and see ahead of the curve? This could enable pharmaceutical and life science companies to run faster and less expensive clinical trials with predictable results, health systems or policy makers to analyze population data to project potential impacts down the road, consumer applications to give simple behavior nudges for healthier choices, or even elite athletes to optimize their performance.
