Empowering consumers to collect, own and share their health data
On this episode of The Handoff, Dan speaks with Ardy Arianpour, CEO and co-founder of Seqster, a healthcare platform that empowers consumers to aggregate their medical records, genetic data, and fitness data from wearables and other personal health devices into one place.
Ardy grew up in San Diego, the “mecca of genomics,” as the son of a breast cancer survivor, two experiences that shaped his early interest in the field. He was one of the very first people to have his genome mapped and recognized early on that there was a huge opportunity to connect data from disparate sources like wearables, Ancestry.com, 23andme and EHRs. Inspired by Mint.com, he set out to create an individualized health record that would enable people to improve their health by collecting, owning and sharing their data.
He shares with Dan how Seqster combines data interoperability and patient engagement to facilitate meaningful conversations between caregivers and patients and ultimately, drive better health outcomes.
