Visible Network Labs is a health technology start-up made up of a team of data scientists building tools for organizations and providers to track, visualize, and strengthen social support systems.
We develop the tools, technologies, research, and training required to measure and visualize social networks. From large-scale organizational social systems to personal networks of individuals, as a mechanisms to influence behavior and systems change, reduce cost, and improve health and well-being outcomes.
Aspen, our network intervention platform provides all of the tools, technologies, and services to ensure that no one is without a social support system.
We believe that health and well-being are rooted in supportive connections. Yet, providers, therapist, care coordinators, and other helping professionals have no tool that can visualize and track the strengths and gaps in the social support systems of patients to create coordinated systems of care. At VNL, we are fueling a technology engine, Aspen, that puts the patient at the center of their story of health and well-being, visually mapping out their connections to the people and organizations that make up their social support networks. Using our existing data infrastructures and processes, and providing a suite of technology tools that can capture their social needs and connections to develop a personalized strategy to create the best path to well-being and health.
We leverage the power of network science to transform fragmented social and medical support systems and information, into an intuitive, easy to access visual care map. Whole network care maps make the seemingly invisible path to better wellness and health, visible to both the patient and provider. That kind of clarity and information gives people and their health care teams the data they need to close the loop on unmet needs, build personal resiliency to adapt to changing or adverse challenges, and strengthen quality of life.
We put people at the center of care, empower them to tell their story of struggle for support, and help to write the next chapter by building their resiliency to leverage their strengths and fill the gaps.
