Transforming Medicine Through Technology

Foundation 29 leverages cutting-edge technology to help patients dealing with rare diseases combat the feeling of helplessness and take control of their health data, while empowering clinicians to leverage that data to make accurate diagnoses for those patients.

We Are Foundation 29

At Foundation 29, we believe technology holds the key to unlocking the future of personalized medicine. We apply the latest in machine learning to help medical professionals turn symptoms, genetic information, and global knowledge and resources into accurate diagnoses for a wide range of the world’s rarest diseases.

Why We Care


For medical providers, rare diseases are often edge cases they haven’t encountered in their education or previous practice.

Foundation 29 believes that the best health care comes when it is powered by patients who play an active role in their own care. We help patients keep track of their personal health data, share it with their medical team when needed, and turn their personal experiences and symptoms into actionable information for clinicians that makes a successful diagnosis happen more likely and on a faster timetable.

What We Do

Everything we do at Foundation 29 is aimed at helping the patients and providers affected by rare diseases see better results. By creating technologies, combining information sources, standardizing data, and offering easy-to-use experiences, we have channeled our efforts into two major platforms, Dx29 and Health29.


Dx29 is a powerful digital tool designed from the ground up to give clinicians augmented capabilities to allow you to deliver accurate diagnoses for rare diseases faster than previously possible.

Health29 is a secure platform built to give you control over your health data. By keeping your data safe, organized, and available to you when you need it, we help patients anonymously share their important medical information with the providers, patient associations and other patients who need it most.
