Health Technology Made Accessible
Doctors don’t need to wade through hundreds of technology websites looking for services in their specialty. Patients don’t need to go through treatments and rehab unaware of better, cheaper products already on the market. Startup founders don’t need to waste time and resources duplicating similar services because they don’t know what other products are being developed.
Problems are international. So are solutions.
