Denis Diderot said, “The best doctor is the one you run to and can’t find.”
In the “dreaming” phase, prior to deciding to set up doctorDB (Angstrohm Technologies) we had clarity of thought on one thing -- that it had to be something meaningful -- something that would help the underprivileged, the needy and the community at large -- while still being financially successful. Health stood out among the basic human needs of Food/Nutrition, Shelter and Education. We chose health because nearly everything in ones’ life depended on good health.
Fast-forward to today and we are very proud that doctorDB is (a)live. In its simplest form, doctorDB allows consumers to find good health -- something that’s not so easy to do even with all (too much!) the information out there on the WWW. And the beauty is that the community evaluates and decides which are the best healthcare providers, products and services.
Many more unique features are planned and will be progressively rolled-out. And we’re going to expand in other countries too. We believe that doctorDB will be a perfect blend of community and commerce. Watch this space!
We think it’s also important for us to convey some important information to you about our values and how we operate: -We are and will always be neutral
This means that we won’t allow any person or entity to “influence” the ratings of a healthcare provider or the other products and services we will offer. Only the community decides that. Even us, the founders, will not rate healthcare providers. This also means that we will not seek or obtain investment from healthcare, pharmaceutical and insurance companies. We want to be trusted -- and that means us walking the talk.Charity means charity
We will not retain/charge a commission for our charity features (coming soon!). These features are non-commercial and are very close to our hearts. Also, when we launch these, we will appoint a reputed audit firm to periodically review and publish a governance report.Privacy & Fairness
To protect both the patients & the healthcare providers, we have implemented a “difficult” sign-up process -- even though it may hurt us. Gaining the trust of the patients, the healthcare providers and the community is paramount for us.For the greater good
We will share our analytics for free to governments in countries where we operate. If our analytics can help governments improve healthcare services and citizen health, then a part of our mission -- “Good health for all!” -- will be accomplished.How do we define success?
Saving one life!
That said, we aim to build a financially successful company and develop game-changing products & services in the hope of empowering the community and constantly helping the underprivileged receive essential and life-saving healthcare.Our journey has just begun.
We know its not going to be easy. But we will do what is hard. We will do what is right. And we will make a positive impact in the communities where we operate.
Wishing you good health always!
Joanne, Arun and Giri
