Organization

The Human Diagnosis Project (Human Dx) is enabling the world's first open diagnostic system in order to understand the best steps to help any patient. By combining the collective intelligence of doctors with machine learning, Human Dx intends to enable more accurate, affordable, and accessible care for all.

Now the world's largest open medical project, Human Dx is structured as a partnership between the social, public, and private sectors. Its partners include many of the nation's top medical boards, societies, academic centers (including Harvard, Hopkins, and UCSF), and financial supporters (including Union Square Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, and the Moore Foundation).
