Our core principals

Company values

We focus on people

Great problems are solved by fulfilled people. Therefore, our foremost priority is to take care of people both inside and outside the organisation and remove hurdles in their way of achieving their personal and professional goals.

We help others

We believe great communities are the very fabric of a society. Communities are strengthened when members actively help others around them. Therefore, we aim to build strong communities inside and outside the organization.

We are honest

We believe in being honest with ourselves and others we interact with. However, we acknowledge that honesty may some time lead to people saying things we don’t like. Therefore, we forgive and acknowledge disagreement.

We move fast

We believe the biggest source of frustration in people is stagnation. To avoid that, we move fast while disregarding the fear of failure and desire to control everything. That’s the only way to solve hard problems that are being faced in healthcare today.

We have fun

Solving complex and hard problems in healthcare are extremely challenging. We’re a bunch of optimists who believe we can improve the world’s healthcare. However, none of this matters if we’re not having fun while making a dent in the universe.
