About Tuple Health

At Tuple Health, we are committed to building a better future of health by addressing the current challenges in the healthcare ecosystem. Our team partners closely with hospitals and physician practices to better enable them to provide high quality, convenient services at an affordable cost. In order to create a more humane health system, we work to improve the clinician, staff and patient experience across care settings.

We design technologies and provide services that enable healthcare to transition from fragmented and transactional services oriented around illness, to more proactive and integrated care focused on patient health and wellbeing. We believe the keys to accomplishing this mission are the complementary talents and emotional intelligence of the people on our team.

With our cross-disciplinary backgrounds in clinical care, healthcare policy, software engineering, data science and human centered design, we nurture a shared culture grounded in mutual respect. This culture knits us together with our larger purpose to reshape healthcare.

Data Science at Tuple Health

Our data scientists work closely with the rest of the team to develop analyses and user-centered software products that inform the day-to-day decision-making of physicians and hospitals. Healthcare providers need to make evidence-based decisions to improve care delivery; our team helps them identify which patients are at risk and what interventions are likely to help. We address these problems with interdisciplinary collaboration across the whole Tuple Health team.
