A transformation is coming.

Much has changed in our world. Memes are driving investment plans. Covid has overstayed its welcome. Bezos quit Amazon and is racing Musk to Mars. But despite all of this change, one thing has stayed the same...healthcare technology.

While expectations rise in other areas of consumer and enterprise software, our health system remains burdened by technical, design, and infrastructural debt. It feels dated and bygone, like we stole it straight out of the 50s.

If the global pandemic in the wake of Covid has shown us anything, it’s that healthcare technology has some catching up to do. While we’ve had medical breakthroughs in fields like cancer research and gene therapy (changes that will forever alter human history for the better), we’ve lacked in others such as the delivery of care, communication between care teams, and the digitization of care.

When we colonize Mars, will our doctors there still ask us to send a fax?

We’re not doctors. But, we have something to give.

While it’s certainly up for debate, many believe the most ground-breaking medical advancements in human history to be...

  • Vaccines (1796)
  • Anesthesia (1846)
  • Germ Theory (1861)
  • Medical Imaging (1895)
  • Penicillin (1928)
  • Organ Transplants (1954)
  • Antiviral Drugs (1960s)
  • Stem Cell Therapy (1970s)
  • Immunotherapy (1970s)
  • First Artificial Organs (1982)
  • Human Genome Sequenced (2003)
  • Digital Health (20--)

We’re not doctors or scientists. But, as patients who are frustrated with the system and as designers, developers, and strategists with the skills and ambitions to fix it, we know one of the next big medical advancements already underway is making healthcare more accessible to humankind through software products and digital health.

At Lightmatter, it’s our mission and life’s work to solve these problems.

Standards we practice


With experience using health-specific tools and frameworks, we can help ensure that your software and PHI are secure, compliant, and structured correctly. Compliance to us is more than just recommending the best service provider to sign a BAA with—it’s proactively built into the way we design products, architect systems, and maintain software over time.
