Our approach

Impact Oriented

We are a diverse team of creative innovators who revel in making science fiction into real working technology with global impact.

At the Brainworks Foundry for trustworthy intelligent machines, we are driving a revolution in healthcare designed to massively reduce the cost of medical assessment and care through AI-enhanced automation, and expand global access to quality care.


Watch our CEO & Chairman, Dr. Phillip Alvelda, introduce some of these new technologies at a recent VenturBeat conference.

Our values

Authenticity

We work on real problems that demand clear self knowledge, a recognition of important global challenges, and the difficulty of creating meaningful solutions that will have impact at large scale. We hold ourselves and our peers accountable.

Diversity

Global challenges require complicated solutions with great complexity. So we emphasize diversity of thought, background, ethnicity, skills, and approach that make a whole much more powerful than cookie cutter approaches accessible to more homogenous teams.

Excellence

When solving global challenges, there is no time to rest easy and just do more of what caused many of our problems. We have high standards of performance and self-motivation to excel, and accomplish what other consider impossible.

Transparency

We don't keep or horde knowledge for individual political power in the organization. We hold the company's collective mission as more important than individual advancement. We don't keep secrets or politics. We leave ego at the door, and work to make the best ideas happen wherever they arise. We share knowledge and training to help everyone excel, grow, and succeed.

Inspiration

There is never a dull moment or boring routine when working on global challenges. We work on problems that are so important and impactful that the reasons to get out of bed every morning are completely clear. We are working hard to improve healthcare for everyone in the world, and to offer even the poorest and most remote people access to care when before, they had none.

Service

We started Brainworks, and developed the Medio service specifically in service of global challenges that have defied easy solutions for decades. Our goal, put simply, is to use powerful new technology to save and extend lives.
