Tech Startups That Make the World Healthier

Chronic diseases are not only a health but also an economic problem. These diseases are among the most preventable, and many startups have taken note. From early diagnosis to genetic testing to posture correction, a range of solutions is being pursued by a few tech start-ups. The genetic testing services provided by Counsyl help people make knowledgeable decisions about their lives. They offers three tests: Family Prep Screen, Informed Pregnancy Screen and Inherited Cancer Screen. Excuse the cliché, but regarding health data, knowledge is truly power. Huneo has capitalized on this notion by developing its HuNet infrastructure that stores time series health information that is then available to any HuNet authorized user.
