About Century Health

Century Health is on a mission is to dramatically accelerate patient access to breakthrough treatments, by leveraging advances in AI and real world clinical data.

We are obsessed with our mission, seeking win-wins that delight our customers, empower researchers, and benefit patients while protecting their privacy.
