Tuple Health

Tuple Health is a healthcare design and technology startup.

We discover, design, and build ways for healthcare providers to deliver better care at a lower cost.

We offer industry expertise, data analysis, and technology products that enable new ways of working, including analytics, collaboration, and care management tools.

Healthcare Is About People

not data or technology

Creating tools for healthcare requires more than technical excellence. It requires empathy and an ability to situate technology in context.

We believe that transformation starts with a relentless focus on improving the user experience. Patients deserve proactive care which keeps them healthy, and clinicians deserve amazing tools to care for their patients.

We’re currently helping oncology practices leverage insurance claims and other datasets to make data-driven decisions about the quality and effectiveness of care. Our customers include hospital systems and some of the largest oncology practices in the country.

This is the first stage in building out a full suite of tools for collaboration, operations, and business intelligence in healthcare.
