Meet the team behind Invaryant 

A little bit about us

We’re engineers, patients, mathematicians, health nuts, doctors, programmers, and creatives coming together to do something about a broken healthcare industry. We’re champions for personalized care plans, consumer-driven healthcare, freedom over our providers, and total ownership of our health.

Our Passion Projects:

Maternal Health

Our team’s efforts focus on improving women’s access to health tools, nutrition, better healthcare, education, and social services.

Healthy Generations

Being and raising the world’s healthiest generations starts with a lifelong health record, full family histories, and new genomics data.

Medical Errors

To end preventable medical errors, we’re equipping patients and doctors with the right health data when and where they need it.
