About us

Nightingale is building a new health-creation system. One that predicts, prevents and averts illnesses by building on scientific evidence, and turning learnings of one into knowledge for everyone.

Solving a global health crisis

Chronic diseases are a leading cause of death, claiming millions of lives every year. The irony is that 80% of these health conditions, including heart disease and type 2 diabetes, are preventable through lifestyle changes. While we know the answer to this global crisis is preventive care, the current healthcare system is pressed to take care of the sick, focusing primarily on treatment.

Change through technology

Our technology gives a much broader view of a person's health from a single blood sample, compared with a standard blood test. Using this technology, we have gathered a myriad of data points from nearly a million samples. This data is backed by years of scientific research, connecting chronic diseases to the effects of lifestyle interventions. Combining technology and science, our blood test can predict the health state and risk of developing chronic diseases up to 10 years in advance. With this foresight into a person’s health, we give people the opportunity to take corrective steps and avoid illnesses.

From research to everyone

Our technology has fuelled world-class research for almost a decade. Founded on scientific knowledge, we bring preventive care to everyone. We give people the power to understand how their lifestyle choices affect their health and governments the tools to keep their citizens healthy. We are building a new "health-creation" system that is designed to abolish chronic diseases by predicting, preventing and averting them.
