THE COGITATIVO STORY


Our healthcare system is broken and we need your help!

We incorrectly assumed our healthcare system is a rules-based system and we believed we could fix the system by adding more rules.

Our thesis is simple: through our proprietary machine learning models, we can begin to "understand" the true behaviors of our healthcare system and we can make the delivery of healthcare the way we always intended--simple, intuitive, and human.

We are not a "tools" or "dashboard" vendor; we use challenge based learning methodologies to assist our clients in accelerating the way they discover, analyze, and shape healthcare system behaviors.

WHY COGITATIVO?


We were founded by mix of seasoned healthcare quants mixed with data scientists from Netflix, private equity, and some of the country's most prestigious clinical organizations. At Cogitativo, we believe in thinking differently; in everything we do, we challenge the status quo.

We do this by asking our clients difficult questions and by making our solutions intelligent, visually beautiful, and simple to use.Because of our personal industry experiences, we are known as great business partners and are very passionate about enhancing our healthcare system.

If you want to make an impact on our society, you found the right place!
