The COUCH Health Story

Our existence is born out of a very personal experience. In 2002, one of our founders lost their father to prostate cancer. Had his doctor been sufficiently educated on the signs to look for, he might still be here today. Had their father understood his own symptoms, he might still be here today. Had his father’s healthcare team been aware of potential life-saving clinical trials, he might still be here today.


So, we are motivated by the profound understanding that, collectively, we need to do better. And outside of our day-to-day, we dedicate our time to causes that mean a lot to us.


There is a major lack of diversity within clinical trials. While this is a complex issue, we’re determined to make a positive change and demand diversity in our industry. To learn more about what this means, join us at

In 2019, we launched an initiative to improve the lives of at least 1 million people by 2022. The campaign is designed to help our team improve lives in their own personal ways. Find out more and get involved at
