who's life and work continue to both inspire and impact us today
Chief - First Principles
Inspires our patient-safety motto: 'First, Escape Harm'. A Greek physician (c. 460 – c. 370 BC) the paragon of the ancient physician, and credited with coining the Hippocratic Oath as well as for greatly advancing the systematic study of clinical medicine, summing up the medical knowledge of previous schools, and prescribing practices for physicians through the Hippocratic Corpus and other works.
Chief - Hand Hygiene
A Hungarian physician (1 July 1818 – 13 August 1865), Semmelweis proposed the practice of washing hands with chlorinated lime solutions in 1847 while working in Vienna first Obstetrical Clinic, where doctors' wards had 3 times the mortality of midwives' wards. Despite publication of results where hand washing reduced mortality to below 1%, Semmelweis's solution was rejected by the medical community.
Chief - Living Hygiene
John Snow (15 March 1813 – 16 June 1858) was an English physician and a leader in the adoption of anesthesia and medical hygiene. He is considered one of the fathers of modern epidemiology, in part because of his work in tracing the source of a cholera outbreak in Soho, London, in 1854. His findings inspired fundamental changes in the water and waste systems of London, which led to similar changes in other cities, and a significant improvement in general public health around the world.
Chief - Medical Heretic
Mendelsohn (1926 – 1988) was an American pediatrician and critic of medical paternalism. He denounced unnecessary and radical surgeries and dangerous medications, public health failures such as the 1976 swine flu vaccine fiasco, and the damage to babies of women who took the drug Diethylstilbestrol during pregnancy. He considered doctors as powerful priests of a primitive religion, with dishonesty as its central ethic and infuriated his medical colleagues.

What. Why. When. Where. Who. How.
No, we don't offer medical advice. We suggest specific questions you could ask your doctor by citing relevant facts and sources. In addition, we enable you to capture your interaction as well as track outcomes.
1. Ideally you should review what information is available on our platform when everything is fine with you and your family. 2. But when you do have a problem, you should certainly use the keywords for your problem (your search terms) and consider the most relevant questions and suggested actions.
We are a for-profit software-as-a-service. We see the need of the hour is a sustainable and scalable business model that inherently prioritizes patient-safety over profit to enable collective action against systemic iatrogenesis.
