CEO Jack Barrette is super passionate about the role social media plays in hacking healthcare to create a better future for patient treatment - which is an essential discussion in light of the recent #DeleteFacebook movement.
People like Sophie Thacher, a software engineer with type 1 diabetes who hacked her continuous glucose monitor to get more actionable health data then the device allows with its standard interface. Or Dakota Rosenthal, Sophie Thachera 22-year-old with a rare form of hemophilia that prevents his blood from clotting properly. Dakota grew so frustrated with the poor usability of mobile apps for his condition he created a free one of his own, which is now used by thousands of fellow hemophiliacs to manage their health better.
