  • Yared Alemu, Ph.D.​

    Founder and CEO

    Solving a big problem, so few understand in a startup environment is a challenge. The mental health outcomes disparities for at-risk youth has been persistence for decades; the population impacted by this lack of adequate care are the 48-million children covered through Medicaid and CHIP. Poor care is expensive, including higher rates of incarceration, academic problems, and higher overall healthcare cost. Our team has been focused on designing digital-behavioral-health and Machine Learning Analytics solutions to improve and eventually eliminate the outcomes disparities for at-risk youth. We are part of a community of mission-driven private enterprises that are driven to be good stewards for our shareholders while doing the same thing for our clients and employees.
