We decided to do something about it.

Trestle Health

Healthcare has become more complex

Technology has allowed us all to be more to be more connected. As consumers, we have come to expect that our online experiences with others will just work. Unfortunately, Healthcare has not kept up.

Although many powerful Healthcare IT systems exist to manage a patient's health, none effectively provide physicians, clinicians, vendors a solution that ensures the coordination, collaboration, and communication that surrounds a specific surgical procedure or event. This lack of efficiency has a profound negative effect on patient satisfaction.

We are working to solve complex problems and processes with simple solutions, allowing Physicians and Clinicians to become more efficient and to focus on what is important - the Patient.

Our Story

We see the opportunity to provide solutions every day

We are veterans of the allied healthcare community, medical device sales, software product development, and orthopedic industries. As such, we have seen the logistic challenges that negatively impact physicians, clinicians, and patients every day. The concept for the Trestle Platform was born after years of experience in working to address these gaps in communication and alignment with our customers.

Trestle Health simplifies and adjusts for the dynamic and ever-changing logistics surrounding a surgical event or procedure. We have listened to our customers and developed simple solution to support efficient care teams and support positive outcomes for patients.
