Our mission is to create a world where access to health has no limitations.
Starting and empowering those who need it most: Patients.

Our Story

EVERYTHING BEGAN WITH A SHOULDER SURGERY AND THE DIFFICULTY OF COMMUNICATING AT THE SAME TIME WITH MY DOCTORS AND PHYSIOTHERAPISTS.

 

It was a much longer process than it should have been.

 

The original idea grew with the pandemic when we realized how difficult it is to have your medical data organized and shared when you need it.

 

I had already gone through several experiences and heard the same stories from several people, but now the sense of urgency requires a quick solution to help people, that’s why Xingu Health was created and will now make our XINGU4H app available.

 

WE WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR THOSE WHO NEED MORE.

Simone Azevedo, Co-founder and CEO at Xingu Health Inc.

OUR TEAM

Simone Azevedo

 

Co-Founder and CEO, with over 25 years of experience in healthcare leading global commercial teams, patient services and humanitarian programs.

 

“My inspiration to create this company comes from my personal experience as a patient and, above all, an interaction with a family in Sudan while they were seeking help for their baby. They lost their baby with a rare genetic disease and were heartbroken thinking they could lose their oldest son as well – until we connected them with a lab in Argentina where they confirmed the boy didn’t have the disease. This has transformed the way I see access to healthcare”.

Henk Schuring

 

Co-founder, with a solid background in Strategic Regulatory on the biotech space and also leading global commercial teams for more than 25 years.

 

“Patients are my inspiration. Regularly when I talk with patients with rare and chronic diseases, they talk about their odyssey to get diagnosis and/or access to treatment. Some of them have journeys of more than 10 years to get diagnosed while having signs and symptoms. I truly believe that helping patients to get access to early diagnosis and treatment could improve their lives and the lives of their caregivers. To achieve this we need to have empowered patients”.

Eduardo Azevedo

 

Co-founder and CIO, with a life-time experience in IT as a computer engineer, developing platforms used in more than 10 countries and leading global team.

 

“My motivation to build this company comes from knowing that our technology, used in a simple way, can help people to manage one of their most important assets, their own health”.
