Empirical Health is proactive primary care that scales. Using AI, we triage healthcare resources to efficiently manage chronic illness and succeed in value-based care payment models.
We think this is the first step toward building the primary care of the future, making use of both new technologies (AI, consumer health sensors, virtual modalities) and new business models (value-based care).
The stars aligned to bring our team together — we're a doctor and an engineer who share a deep passion for improving healthcare by bridging a data-driven approach with emerging technologies. We first met at Cardiogram (deep learning for heart health), Brandon’s prior company, where Raquel was a visiting scholar. Raquel Rodriguez Martinez was previously a Clinical Assistant Professor at UC San Francisco and a physician at Kaiser. Brandon Ballinger co-founded Cardiogram and also Sift (machine learning for fraud detection, top 50 YC company), and worked on Risk Engineering at Brex, the HealthCare.gov rescue team, and machine learning at Google.
