Tea Leaf Health
is trying to understand the biggest challenges to accessing care in order to design better support tools for all patients and care stakeholders.
Tea Leaf Health was founded by Kevin Timms, PhD, out of a concern for the inaccessibility of specialty care for rare diseases. Knowing that this issue contributes to the health inequity crisis in the US, Tea Leaf Health aims to help everyone from all backgrounds, including and especially patients from underserved and high need communities. Deployments of Tea Leaf Connect, often customized for research use cases and/or embedded into different advocacy groups' websites, are meant to match patients to care options and resources that best fit their personal and the community's needs.
Using information shared with the tool, we seek to conduct analyses and develop tools that better support patients and other healthcare stakeholders, while also responsibly caring for users' privacy. We are a private business, but a respect for patients is at the heart of our work.
Tea Leaf Health seeks to develop tools to support patients, caregivers, researchers, and other healthcare stakeholders while also respecting a patient’s privacy. As such, identifiable and contact information submitted to a Tea Leaf Connect deployment or its variants (e.g., pkdcaremap.com) is never sold. Health data will not be shared on an individual level outside of Tea Leaf Health analysts. As this tool collects information that can help us understand the unique characteristics and needs of a patient population, we may study the information and may publicly share results of this high-level analyses. However, all data points presented will be reported only at the group level (e.g., statistics like counts across demographic variables or statistics-based models) and will not elucidate the identifiable information on any individual person.
Entry of data into the Tea Leaf Connect survey should be completed by those 18 or older. Do not hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns.
If you provide contact information such as an email address, or contact us via an email address, we may hope to correspond with you to answer your questions, provide updates, and/or request feedback. Your contact information will not be sold. You can request we stop contacting you at any time. You can reach out with feedback or questions via the contact forms on tealeafhealth.com.
