Thank you to all our supporters for making this a foundational year for our company.

In 2014, we worked feverishly to make evidence-based medicine and guidelines practical and accessible for clinicians and patients alike. We released four free products, helped over 1500 clinicians reduce unnecessary testing and diagnose with quantified certainty, won support and funding from three institutional partners, and informed over 8,000 patients on the importance and need for evidence-based medical decision making.

Cheers & Onwards,
– The SnapDx Team
