acquires Betterpath health empowering patients with access to healthcare’s dark data

In a recent press release,, the company bringing individuals and corporations into a consumer-inclusive data economy, announced the acquisition of Betterpath, a four-year-old Brooklyn, New York company with unique technologies, which works on behalf of patients to search, find, and improve healthcare data that is currently difficult to access

Matt Sinderbrand, CEO and co-founder of Betterpath will join as Senior Vice President, Chief Product Officer as well as a member of the Board of Directors. “The track and trace of consent and authorization model that has brought to market has been what is missing in healthcare data from the inception” states Sinderbrand. “The simple idea that we should put the consumer (the patient) into the center of the healthcare data supply chain with ownership rights literally at their fingertips is both powerful, and timely.”

Sinderbrand started Betterpath after experiencing first-hand his sister’s struggle with accessing her own healthcare data while battling Crohn’s disease, and as a result prioritized the training of Betterpath’s Lumos medical natural language understanding to learn more than 100,000 biomedical-terms, synonyms, relationships, and structured codes. In honor of his sister’s condition, the first disease vocabulary programmed was Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
