Funding programs to solve healthcare’s biggest challenges

Your opportunity to truly impact healthcare delivery and the people who need it most.

Building a foundation for success

Data is everywhere in healthcare. In fact, there is more data than we know what do with. Because we struggle to analyze, interpret, and use the data we have, we also struggle to reduce costs and improve outcomes. We need better tools to understand healthcare data, and an able workforce ready to make it meaningful, if we are going to address healthcare’s biggest challenges. That’s where donors like you, and the CyncHealth Foundation, come in.
