About Us

Renewing the Spirit of
Care Delivery

We at HBHS want to humanize the process of taking care of humans. Providers are drowning in overpowering systems, policies & procedures that prevent them from truly focusing on the care recipient. Healthcare, in particular, is buried in government mandates, counting & trending adverse events, malpractice suits & adversarial peer review. By designing practical solutions & reliable systems that support providers, we can get back to the human side of caring for others.
