About Surgo Health

At Surgo Health we know the key to tackling the biggest challenges in healthcare is to holistically understand the people we serve. We believe that a complete understanding of what drives people’s behavior – and how their context impacts them – is critical to ensure every person lives a healthy life.  80% of healthcare outcomes are driven by behavioral, social, and contextual factors that shape people’s lives. Unless they’re measured and understood, these factors cannot be addressed – and that failure drives significant negative health outcomes, costs, and inequities for life science companies, payors, and providers. We are creating the most comprehensive socio-behavioral profile of every individual. Our SaaS product provides prescriptive insights for every person in every place.

Surgo Health spun off of Surgo Ventures to develop a product-first focused solution to solving challenges in healthcare. We are a growing team with ambitious plans to launch our first data-centric product and are in search of top-class talent who want to roll up their sleeves and work in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment. As a healthcare technology start-up based in DC, this is a fantastic opportunity for someone who thrives in a start-up culture and wants to help shape the future of how our products deliver value to healthcare clients. We make healthcare more precise, personalized, and equitable.
