At Smithwise, we work on projects that advance the state of healthcare by impacting two major areas—patient wellbeing and healthcare sustainability.
We’ve witnessed greater advances in medical care in the past century than in all of human history before that. That progress has been the result of the development and application of new technologies to perennial health problems. But many challenges remain unsolved and many patient populations are underserved.
The US is in the midst of a healthcare crisis, with 18% of the US GDP in 2016 going to pay for healthcare, a number that continues to grow every year. Throughout the entire chain of care, individuals and institutional stakeholders understand that this can't continue.
It’s our goal at Smithwise to improve the standard of care, reduce suffering, and promote human flourishing by continuing to explore and apply new technologies to help people live longer, healthier lives.

A job title from a bygone day, a smith was an artisan of the old world, an expert in a craft of fashioning raw materials into products of functionality and beauty. Smiths applied skills acquired over a lifetime of experience and passed down from one generation of craftsmen to another.
In our professional lives, we often speak about the importance of intelligence, education, and experience, but less so about being wise. Wisdom is the application of these assets to real-world situations, the use of good judgement to guide our actions in a time of uncertainty.
