We so often think of Healthcare as an industry that we tend to forget about Healthcare as a purpose.

Healthcare

How would you define Healthcare to the next generation?

No one will have a greater interest in your health than you.

For most of our healthcare, we depend too much on Providers who often treat hundreds of Patients and Payers who often have millions of Patients.  Providers and Payers are crucial to the system, but they are traditionally required to access even basic healthcare.

Payers possess the financial resources needed to access Providers, and Providers possess the tools and clinical judgment needed to provide healthcare; yet, Patients have remained at the periphery of this paradigm with limited alternatives.

We spend <1% of our time in a Health setting, yet somehow expect that analyzing the health data generated there will lead to enhanced outcomes.

While Providers have access to clinical diagnostic tools and tremendous medical experience, they can be limited in their utility when confined to intermittent moments in time.  In such cases, the Consumer's advantage is access to the 99% "observation window" outside of a Health setting – from the Life setting – yet we lack any continuous and passive solutions to detect developing diseases today.

Over the past few years, a "consumerization" of healthcare has begun to accelerate.

The Consumer Health and Wellness market has created a plethora of marginal solutions to help mitigate pre-disease risks, which we believe largely apply to the "Prevention" phase.  Moreover, technology is already unbundling and enhancing primary-care functions and a shift to increasing healthcare access from the home is beginning to occur.

There are currently no solutions for the timely detection of pre-symptomatic developing diseases.

We call this massive gap in the market the "Detection" phase and we believe this is where the next wave of innovation will occur in Consumer Healthcare.

BioTrillion is forming to contribute to this massive clinical and economic gap that lies between disease origination and symptoms.

Extrapolating even further, we believe the ratio of diagnostics to therapeutics occurring outside of a Health setting will increase asymptotically into the future.

BioTrillion is well positioned to leverage the convergence of multiple tailwinds occurring across healthcare, technology, and society.

Evolution has spent thousands of years developing the human body as the most complex machine ever engineered.  Ironically, we now require human-engineered machines to reverse engineer the human body.

Biological systems can be broken down into an engineering science, such as Bioengineering, but understanding that complexity is fundamentally limited by the human brain itself.  Biology is too complex, non-linear, and interconnected to reverse engineer by human minds alone.  It requires another complex machine – computers – to augment our human abilities.
