"Our health depends on many things, like money, where we live, school, social care, the voluntary sector and NHS services. To join things up, we need a new people-powered approach."

Healthwave was founded out of a realisation that evolving digital healthcare services aren’t serving the very people they are supposed to help - in fact often potential users aren't even being engaged, raising the question: is this because no-one has asked people what services they need and how can they most usefully be delivered?

Healthwave founders Dr Rehan Symonds and Oli Sleeman had been working in healthcare for over 30 years. But, as they increasingly worked to modernise and transform the healthcare system, they came to a fundamental conclusion that could radically optimise the impact of technology driven health solutions;

“We realised that technology should be the end point – not the starting point.”

Rehan and Oli founded Healthwave to drive engagement, delivering meaningful change that results is sustainable transformation. To put the actual service users – whether they’re young or old, whatever their nationality or protected status – at the heart of the service pathway design.

"We believe in a world where people are placed at the heart of product and service design - so everyone can easily access what they need, when they need it."
