Lower the barriers to innovation in healthcare

The barriers to innovation in healthcare are too high to support the levels required by current unmet need. Better digital services and tooling are a prerequisite for getting more impactful innovations into the hands of the people who need them most - patients and clinicians.

Healthforge exists to address this problem.
