Health Systems

Health systems sometimes don't have enough data, sometimes they have too much, most often it's both. We fill data gaps by looking to online news, social media, anonymous user forums, dark web, or directly crowdsourcing. We provide data processing capabilities to connect the dots within existing data, for real-time computing of hospital performance and patient health.
