“Despite steady technological growth, deep-rooted inefficiencies in healthcare make it difficult to deliver patient-centered care. We found that the technology our doctors use in their day-to-day work is less sophisticated that what your Uber driver is using. That struck us as quite a deficit, so we set out to change things.“
