About Us

We are a team passionate about making the healthcare journey better– for everyone. We are geneticists and data scientists, technologists, system architects, parents, and digital natives who have each struggled to manage challenging health conditions that we didn’t feel fully supported through. The healthcare experience can and should be better. 

 

A critical foundation to a better health system is a platform built on individual health data, with simple tools, that allow you to feel seamlessly supported as you own your health journey, especially through intense periods of health management like pregnancy and early life.

Our pillars

We care deeply for both our customers and our teammates, and build respect into the foundation of our interactions with everyone.

Culture

of care

We create a safe environment to be genuine, authentic, try hard things and fail. We feel comfortable shouting unpopular opinions - boldly and compassionately. We commit, and act -- even when it scares us

Enjoy the journey

Trust matters. We are all  held together by trust. Speed without trust breaks things, trust without momentum stagnates. We believe this perpetual circle of speed and trust allows us to move mountains.

Move at the speed of trust

Everyone has a right to own their data and their health. We encourage our customers to be drivers and not passengers in their health journeys, and we expect our colleagues to have the same attitude towards their work.

Own it

Transparency is core to trust, to speed, to collaboration, to understanding. We are radically transparent in our dealings with our customers and each other - because we believe this is better.

Why the world needs Trellis Health

Estelle Giraud, CEO and co-founder

I'm a founder passionate about human health and I'm also a new mother. My experience was pretty intense but not uncommon; including IVF, an emergency C-section, prenatal hypertension, postpartum preeclampsia and medication incompatibilities. I had to monitor my blood pressure multiple times a day, track symptoms, maintain a complex medication schedule, stay on top of a calendar full of appointments and reminders, and had a multitude of genetic and blood tests. There were so many apps and tools out there that would tell me the size of my baby, what carrier was best, or what milestones they were reaching in utero, but there was nothing to really help me manage my own health. And while my care team was fantastic - my information was so siloed it created inevitable gaps in my care. I've moved several times and seen many different physicians both before and during my pregnancy, and the lack of continuity left me feeling anxious and frustrated. I felt I had to stay on top of my own care and information or it would slip through the cracks... my baby and I would slip through the cracks.

 

I spoke with dozens of women, and discovered that my experiences were not unique; quite the opposite. Frustration, concerns around maternal health risks, missed information leading to avoidable mistakes, it was all a common burden of responsibility for these women. I believe we can fill some of these gaps and ease the "pregnancy health load" with a secure, private health data system and some very simple digital tools that allow your health data to work for you in a meaningful way. This is one of the most important health journeys of your life, building a human. We have to do a better job at supporting women through this. 

 

I’ve worked at the front line of emerging technologies in healthcare and genetics my whole career; and was always passionate about improving the human health and health data systems.

Motherhood just gave me a new perspective.

 

Our goal is to empower the next generation of parents to take ownership of their family's health. We want to help new parents feel confident and capable when taking on the job of managing the health of their entire family, and build a platform that will ease the minds of new parents everywhere.

Our vision is to build a distributed, privacy-preserving, personalized health management and insights platform.

For everyone.
