After working as a physician for over 10 years, the barriers to communicating with his patients combined with the gap in technology from his work life to his personal life motivated him to create what is now MediSprout. Working with the belief that facilitating the way providers and patients communicate can be one part of the puzzle to creating better medical outcomes, he devised a way to meld the efficiencies of technology with the shortcomings of medical practice. This he sees as only a beginning - by enhancing one of the cornerstones of medical practice, the Provider-Patient interaction, you can spin off many other aspects of health care innovation making it a dynamic interface.
