We are a sleep technology company, unlocking the full potential of sleep. We use technology as our weapon to solve the problem of sleep deprivation, and in the process bring about the biggest evolution that sleep has seen in the last 300 years. The award-winning Eight Smart Mattress is currently used by over 20,000 people to understand their sleep and maximize recovery.

For pharma & payers, Cecelia Health’s coaching solution combines expert clinical support with tech to affordably improve patient adherence and health outcomes.
Cecelia Health, formerly Fit4D, is connecting clinical coaching and our proprietary technology with diabetes patients to improve patient outcomes for a healthier population.
Named for a remarkable Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), Cecelia Health partners with pharmaceutical companies, medical device companies, and insurer plans to improve the lives of individuals living with diabetes. With the largest staff of CDEs in the country, we deliver effective, personalized one-on-one solutions through a blend of technology and clinical coaching.

At Flume Health we believe that health plans are a conduit between patient and provider. They are necessary bodies but exist only to facilitate the smoothest delivery of healthcare to the members they serve.
We are a Third Party Administrator on a mission to deliver the highest quality care at the best possible price, without friction.
Because we are a technology company making an insurance platform we can bring the most sophisticated care systems and payment protocols to employers that other legacy TPA’s cannot.
Welcome to the future of healthcare.

Slingshot Health is a dual sided unfettered marketplace in healthcare connecting patients and providers.  Providers on average have four openings per day while patients wait on average thirty days to see a provider.  We connect both sides with no membership or maintenance fees.  We opened in Manhattan late last year.  Today if you put in any Manhattan zip code over 100 specialties (Traditional, Alternative, and Complimentary Providers) are providing over 1,000 services.  We tell the patient the average cost for the service they are seeking, they use that as guidance and their bid goes to all the providers who can provide that service for them.  The Provider can accept, counterbid, or ignore the bid.  Patients join us using their credit card, debit card, HSA, or FSA.  Since the payment is made in “cash”, significant savings are enjoyed by all.  Slingshot Health provides Access, Affordability, and 100% Transparency to Healthcare.
