Our Vision: To Extend Human Life Expectancy
to 150 Years Within This Generation or The Next
We Are Technology Leaders and Health Care Professionals, Uniting to Transcend Triage and Replace Bureaucratic Cost-Cutting With Silicon Valley Solutions and Breakthrough Cures.
Insurance companies and government agencies see patients as a cost: a budget item to be managed, minimized, cut. In January 2013, Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso stated the logical conclusion of this approach when he gave a speech saying that “old people should hurry up and die.”
We see patients as people, not costs to be cut. We believe the sort of breakthrough technological approaches characteristic of Silicon Valley can re-humanize health care and greatly extend human life and health expectancy.
How? By finding cures instead of cuts, by rethinking obsolete processes in drug development and approval, and by employing “big data”, advanced modeling, and interdisciplinary insight to leapfrog today’s “possible” by a generation or more.
We are Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and technologists, health care reformers, physicians, and cultural leaders who are concerned about the direction of medicine in America. We’ve led breakthroughs before. Join us.
