We are MedStack

What can we do to take the incredible innovation and creativity in technology entrepreneurship today and apply it to the world's biggest problem - healthcare?

Despite the incredible potential of cloud-based, real-time digital technology, we are not meeting the urgent pressures on healthcare delivery from rising chronic disease prevalence and an aging population. Hospitals and clinics still rely on a foundation of paper charts and verbally-delivered histories, and EHR investments alone aren't enough to close the gap. MedStack brings application ecosystems and the power of developer communities to healthcare.
