We exist because we care

Technology was supposed to improve healthcare. Unfortunately, it has increased physician work load, decreased doctor-patient time at a significant cost to the taxpayer.

Over the next decade, it is obvious that technology will have a significant impact on the practice of medicine. From providing diagnostic support, improving early detection, to creating new modalities of care.

We aim to accelerate our trajectory towards this future by regularly bringing doctors and hackers together. We meet about once a month, where participants share new ideas, get feedback from the group and potentially form teams. Whether it is for a side project, a new startup or a research paper.

Increasing connections between physicians and builders will help both groups understand each other better. And create solutions that helps doctors work better and stay happier, improve patient experience and decrease overall cost. Please sign up if you are interested.
