Moving To N of 1

Moving to the N of 1

Many of you know that my drive is to ensure that healthcare transitions from We Care, to Me Care.

The days of being cared for based on a population of people that are similar to you or me are disappearing.

What all of us want is to be seen, heard, and understood.

Our needs, our anxiety, and our expectations.

All we want is to be cared for at a human level. A personal level.

A one to one level.

A level that is made of a patient and a physician visiting.

This is the N of 1.

This is why I’m so excited to be a part of this Board of Directors…because this company, this technology, are driving medicine to the N of 1.

Leaving the world of healthcare and moving back to the world of medicine.

Back to a world built on trust.

A world that delivers care at the N of 1 to you and me.
