One of the questions I am most often asked is “why is it called snap40.” Here is the truth – it means nothing. As we’ve grown, it’s become important to start thinking about who we are and what we want to be. With that in mind, we’re today announcing that we’re now Current Health. With a certain dose of sadness, snap40 is no more.
New name, same mission.
Stewart and I started Current Health because of our core belief in the preciousness of human life and the desire to protect it. At Current Health, we envision a future where healthcare comes to us, before we even know we need it.
Like a doctor or nurse who never sleeps, Current Health provide continuous, wireless and passive monitoring in any setting, even in the comfort of a patient’s own home. Acting as a hub, it seamlessly integrates with a range of peripheral devices. Our platform delivers actionable advanced insights to healthcare professionals before bringing the patient and their doctor together, through video or text, in order to deliver earlier treatment or intervention.
2018 was a breakout year for us as we raised an $8M seed venture capital investment, expanded into the United States and expanded our customer base to include some of the world’s most innovative hospitals, home healthcare agencies and clinical partners.
We have so much news to share, but we’re keeping things under wrap just a bit longer. There will also be a brand new website released very soon and we’ll also put up a post describing the intent of our brand later this month. Keep visiting the site and stay tuned!
Our core tenets — Data, Empowerment, Future-Forward:
What sets us apart, and what inspires us day in and day out, is our dedication to protecting the life of every human being. Here’s how we are working to do this:
- The right information at the right time. We don’t just deliver data, we deliver actionable insights so doctors and nurses can make better decisions earlier. We use data science to make meaningful sense of the information we collect – bringing together continuous vital signs, patient symptoms and peripheral device data – to identify the patients who most need clinical attention so clinicians can do their jobs faster.
- Patient empowerment. We believe in empowering patients to make more informed decisions over their own health. We bring patients, their caregivers and doctors together. When everyone is aware of what’s going on, patients stay healthy and caregivers can focus on what they do best – care.
- Living in the future. While we’re focused on keeping people healthy today, we also have an eye toward the future and building the capability – using data science and artificial intelligence – to be two steps ahead of caregivers and patients at all times. Patients don’t always know when they need to call their doctor. Current Health will.
