What do we do?

Medisas builds cloud software for hospitals to help doctors and nurses improve key workflows such as handoff, rounding and discharge.

Why join us?

1) Software in hospitals is slow, complex and ugly because it was written for Windows 95. Doctors are still using pen and paper to keep notes and update patient medical records.

2) Medisas is the first company to focus on building beautiful software for hospitals. Our software targets the patient handoff process (when one member of the hospital communicates information about the patient to another). 80% of medical errors are made during this handoff process, and medical errors are the third leading cause of deaths in hospitals in the US.

3) The goal for the company is improving patient care and saving lives. Our software will become the operating system for hospitals, with all data will flow through it in real time. As we grow, this will eventually become a platform which anyone can build exciting applications on top of to improve the quality of patient care.
