Healthcare innovation is our DNA.
Persimmon Health was born of our experience, validation, and commitment to healthcare innovators. Our mission is to help them use technology to advance our healthcare systems and create a happier and healthier world. We have 450 passionate people across offices in Seattle, Boston, Kathmandu, and Mexico City
Persimmon Health is a purpose-built offering of Leapfrog Technology Inc. Over a 10 year period, we partnered with a diverse array of healthcare innovators who were challenged to launch and scale specialized solutions. Solutions required complex data, cloud, UX and interoperability and security development. And we delivered for over 50 customers to help them Show Proof, Be Viable, and Attain Scale
Persimmon therefore builds upon the collective experience of Leapfrog, but focuses exclusively innovative healthcare solutions.
Healthcare is personal to us.
It was March of 2021. We were launching new vaccination management software for Signetic, a healthcare startup. The launch site, Lumen Field, the home field of NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, was transformed into the primary point-of-delivery for COVID vaccinations. Chandika and I were on site with the City of Seattle operational team, reviewing the real-time dashboard of people having registered for a vaccine, the number having checked in via iPad outside of Lumen Field, the number of vaccinations predicted at the end of the day; and, most important, an on-going tabulation of the folks having been vaccinated so far that day.
We’ve created a new brand—Persimmon Health—that embodies our spirit of innovation, and our desire to improve the quality of life for patients in the US
- Persimmon is a fruit packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and myriad health benefits
- Persimmons need time to ripen to reach full sweetness, which recalls the iterative process to find the sweet spot for products we work on.
- Persimmons represent longevity and good luck. Puja ceremonies use them in Nepal to celebrate, where hundreds of our team live and work.
- The persimmon life cycle, from seed to mature fruiting tree, reminds us of our mission to help health innovators Dream, Launch, Grow.
