As a collective of spirited designers, medical professionals, and entrepreneurs, we cross-pollinate knowledge and inspiration from diverse sources, without limiting ourselves to the traditional concepts native to healthcare.

We have an unfettered vision of what the healthcare workplace can and should be - an engaging experience for both provider and patient, augmented by supportive technology.
