The Story of John Snow

John Snow was a physician in 19th century London. He is considered one of the fathers of modern epidemiology, in part because of his work in tracing the source of a cholera outbreak in Soho, London, in 1854. His findings inspired fundamental changes in the water and waste systems of London, which led to similar changes in other cities, and a significant improvement in general public health around the world.

Over 600 people died within several weeks during the Soho Cholera outbreak. John Snow identified the source of the epidemic by analyzing data – specifically, he built a detailed map of all the households where people died, and subsequently came to the conclusion that the fault was one public water well that all victims had used. The pump was taken out of service and the cholera outbreak ceased. The big insight was that cholera was a waterborne disease – a fact that the academic establishment did not believe at the time. John Snow had to pick a public, data-driven fight to make that case.

Our goal as a company is to support as many John Snows as we can. For him to be successful, a lot of people had to go house by house to collect, check and aggregate the data that he needed to make the insight that saved lives. That’s who we are – working behind the scenes to make today’s healthcare game changers successful. We help them move faster by focusing on what they do best.
