About us

Health Outcome is the first platform for patients to rate and review their treatment experiences and help find treatments that cure.

Although there are 51 million surgeries conducted in the U.S. annually, there is no meaningful data on medical treatments or surgery outcomes available to patients or physicians. We are actively addressing this void of outcome data with a platform built to capture the voice of the patient.
