On their Mind
“Thinking is what we do best. We apply our thinking to solve creative and strategic problems that seem either insurmountable or unthinkable. At times, we’ve even discovered new problems and challenges and proactively sought out solutions as preemptive strikes against second-rate thinking.”
On their Soul
“We are digital. We are health. We are also defiant, bold, and closely connected to imaginative thinkers and risk–takers who define digital health. Our philosophy is grounded in brilliance yet our methodology has often pushed us over the “practical ledge” and forced us to build wings on the way down. We like to fly.”
