Why we're doing this

Chronic respiratory diseases reduce the quality of life of millions worldwide, and are a major cause of death. Health systems are increasingly strained. We believe improved care in the future can only come from more preventative and precision care. There is a great opportunity to apply advances in digital technologies to both improve care and health system efficiency.

Arete's founder, Graeham Douglas, was a competitive swimmer for Cambridge University, but his struggles with asthma forced him to retire from the sport. Dr Douglas started Arete to apply his background in biomedical engineering to help improve care for people with chronic diseases.

Arete's name was inspired by the book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, meaning a wholistic quality (Greek). We view chronic disease management as requiring a wholistic view of the individual. The ambiguity with the French meaning of the word (to stop) is intentional.
