Pictal Health — Purpose, Vision and Values


Purpose

Pictal Health uses visual tools to help doctors and patients work together better so patients can get the diagnosis and treatment they need and get back to their lives.


Vision

We imagine an amazing future in which Pictal Health has helped make personal health visualization the new standard, patients drive their own health narrative, doctors and patients are true partners, and rates of undiagnosed and misdiagnosed patients plummet as a result.


Values

We are:

Brave

We speak up; we are not afraid to do the right thing.


Collaborative

We work together efficiently; great communication and mutual respect is our thing.

This is a mind meld.

Community-oriented

We integrate with local and online communities; give back; lift up and support others.


Design-driven

We always follow a human-centered design process.


Empathetic

We always work from a place of understanding.


Focused

We work from principles to keep focus; we work intensely.


Generous

We share our work to build greater knowledge.


Impact-oriented

Life is short; we aim to make a difference today. We ship.


Integrity-minded

We do what we say we will do.


Purpose-oriented

Our heart is in the work.


Visual, always

We make meetings and concepts visual, no excuses.


And, we do no harm

We we do our best to keep patients and their information safe.
