Our story

HN was founded in Sweden by a group of clinicians and researchers from the Karolinska Institute including Founder and ex A&E consultant Dr Joachim Werr.

While working in emergency care, Joachim observed a pattern: repeatedly seeing the same patients in crisis.

This perpetual dilemma motivated Joachim to find a way to predict these high-risk individuals earlier, using existing hospital data, so clinicians could intervene before emergencies arise.

From this insight, Joachim founded HN to deliver AI-powered solutions that identify patient risks, enabling preventative care.
