Jacob Alcauskas is the Co-founder and COO of Superconductive Health. Superconductive Health focuses on dramatically accelerating the value of data in healthcare. Our team is a rare blend of two crucial skill sets: deep domain knowledge of healthcare data, and cutting-edge expertise in data engineering, automation, and machine learning. We believe that faster, higher quality exchange of information, both within and between organizations, is a lever point for healthcare — a key enabler to improve patient outcomes, lower costs, and accelerate research.
Superconductive Health is pioneering tools and process that dramatically accelerate the mundane—but critical—work of building and maintaining the context-rich data pipelines that enable research, analytics, workflow, interoperability, and AI. Our Data Engineering service offerings and Data Checkpoints product suite have the power to dramatically cut the overhead cost of data work in healthcare and life sciences. Agile data practice, deep domain knowledge, and proprietary workflow tools make us the best data engineers in healthcare.
