At NextGen Jane, we know that seeking peace of mind is essential to your health.


And striking a balance between tracking your health and sacrificing your time is key to feeling confident in your well-being.


We get it. "Health" is complex. Health care "management" can seem like a full-time job.



Concepts like prevention and early detection sound great but where is the playbook that articulates what you should do and when? But more importantly, is it accessible and easy to carry out in your busy life?

How can we make this easier?

People have incredible strength in dealing with adversity. It's uncertainty that's daunting. We want to reduce the uncertainty in our health in order to bring greater peace of mind.



Multiple data points collected about you over a long span of time will be more informative of your health than the same data collected in a single visit at a lab.

Health care is currently managed reactively. If you feel sick, you will go to the doctor to check it out. That works well for things like eating; if you're hungry, you'll make your way to a grocery store or restaurant. But it doesn't always work in healthcare. The model is especially prone to failure for asymptomatic conditions like chlamydia and gonorrhea.

Your time is valuable. You should be rewarded for proactive health tracking with more free time not less. We want to get you out of lines & waiting rooms by bringing our product to the privacy of your home.

We're truly excited to take on this challenge with you.


NextGen Jane's ambition is to make your healthcare management actually manageable.


We want to reduce the friction in the system that makes it difficult to track important health metrics about yourself on a more regular basis. That's why we decided to invent around your day and find ways to integrate into your routine. It's natural to worry but we want to relieve some of the stress by giving you the tools to manage your health with simple, effective strategies.
