We help others make and understand connections in a complex web of data. On one end of the spectrum, we ingest large amounts of heterogeneous data, ranging from multi-GB exports from large data providers to individual facts extracted by abstractors from scanned paper records. On the other end of the spectrum, we serve information derived from the processed data to users, including doctors and other healthcare decision makers who draw meaningful conclusions about the current state of their patients.
