Our Mission

Improve the lives of people with serious or chronic medical conditions and of those who care for them.
Effectively apply software and the social web to the field of health for the betterment of humanity.

Our Values

We respect what patients and medical professionals cope with on a day-to-day basis. We respect the patients’ and their caregivers’ rights to know all information about their medical conditions, whether positive or negative, whether or not disclosed to them by their medical team. We respect the professionalism and interests of medical professionals involved in helping people prolong and improve their lives. We respect our partners, employees, healthcare professionals, and other stakeholders, and will treat them with the respect they deserve.
We will continuously innovate our offerings (including the services we provide) as well as our marketing and business models. We will never rest on our laurels and will not fear cannibalizing our solutions. We expect and encourage innovation to come from anyone, including our users.
We don’t expect our mission to be completely realized overnight. In fact, we believe ongoing success can only come with hard and continuous effort. Obstacles will be overcome to achieve our mission.
Optimism + Realism
We blend optimism with realism. Our vision is bold, and we are optimistic that we will achieve it. However, we must be realistic in that pursuit. We will not tolerate persistent pessimism nor mistake it for realism.
Life First
We are here to improve and prolong lives. We will not do so by draining the life of all those involved in Medivizor. We value life of our users, our partners, and our employees.
