The Inspiration...
the Zebra and the Oxpecker Bird

Zebras and oxpecker brids have a mutualistic symbiotic relationship from which both species benefit.

 

The oxpecker grazes on the zebra's back, removing ticks and other parasites from the zebra's skin.  The oxpecker is provided with a steady source of food, while the zebra is provided with a form of pest control.  Neither could survive without the other.

Our Roots

As a patient advocate much of her life, SimbiQ founder, Cassandra Frederickson, knew that while her family's care needs were specific to them, their challenges accessing and sharing the right information when critical decisions were being made were not unique.

 

After 15 years supporting payors and providers in the health tech space, Cassandra recognized that there were synergies in the needs for all those involved in a patient's care journey - access to the "right" data, at the "right" time.

 

In the fall of 2019, Cassandra founded SimbiQ with the mission of empowering patients and caregivers with the information and tools needed to make informed healthcare decisions, addressing healthcare inequity, and simplifying the way in which healthcare data is shared amongst all those involved in patient care to reduce wasteful spend and downtime.
