Global Meetups expand! Next stop Chi-town

By David Haddad on May 18, 2015

Since March, we’ve hosted three Meetups in NYC, SF and London.

Teamwork & Tracking: reflections on Stanford Medicine X

By Katie McCurdy on September 17, 2014

For the last two years I’ve had the opportunity to attend and speak at the uniquely patient- and design-centered health conference, Medicine X.
