George Georgallides is the Founder of Basis, a start-up that is taking an advanced view of helping patients achieve better health and reach health and fitness goals.  Integrating data from a wide range of sources, Basis is striving for a real-time approach to engaging patients in making small but significant adjustments as they go through their day.

George explains, "So, what we've essentially built is the unique integrative approach to help them that combines all this information that we're getting. We're actually addressing and combining it with workout, nutrition, mindfulness, and sleep in one platform. Those are things that exist in silos. The data exists in unstructured and incomprehensible ways for the person."

"We've structured all those things around specific health goals. My background is in bioinformatics. My team is data scientists and health experts from universities and programs. So, we have an amazing team, and we've been able to build very interesting models around data that most people don't really have much use for. Most people don't really understand how to put a resting heart rate or heart rate variability as a number into affecting their day-to-day life. So, we take that obscurity of that, and we put that into a specific, actionable task. So, how does it influence recovery? How does your sleep last night influence how you should eat, exercise, the level of activity you have today?
