During his twenty years as a physician, it became apparent to Dr. Govender that healthcare delivery was not keeping pace with patient needs. He set out to remedy this by attempting to improve his medical practice. Through trial and error, he realized that the remedy lay not in mending the existing system, but rather in creating a new, more effective one. A patient-centric approach utilizing technology was the answer.
Dr. Govender teamed up with Paul Lechner and Louise Craig-Hosking. The goal of their collaboration was to develop patient-centric, coordinated healthcare by utilizing secure, user-friendly technology.
