Paulette became a young widow at age 30. Her two children were just 4- and 6-year olds then. Despite limited resources, she managed to give her kids a good life.
Just when things got a lot better, Paulette encountered a bigger challenge—cancer.
For about a decade and a half, her life had been all about trips to the doctor, regular checkups, and staying healthy. Years of medical files were definitely taking up space in their home and in her everyday life. As she shuttled between Guam (where she is based) and the Philippines, carrying her medical files to different doctors and pharmacies became too cumbersome and costly. Replenishing her medication had become a guessing game. Staying healthy sometimes became detrimental to her own health.
Paulette stood strong as a cancer warrior and survivor.
Our founder, Dale, had been witness to all of this. Paulette is Dale's mother.
Dale runs a tech company that started in 2004. Among numerous IT projects, their team also made the first Filipino-themed game on iTunes and Googleplay called Sipa and a mobile photo diary meant to tell your story through photos called Pickld. He regularly shares experiences being a Mentor and Director at Founder Institute (Manila). He also started Mighty Minds, a nonprofit organization that helps kids finish school.
Joel is a marketing executive and has been involved in the field for the last 20 years. His work involves a lot of travel and he loves to explore and talk to local folks during these times. Through these encounters, he was able to get a closer look at the plight of the Filipinos with regard to medical and health access. He believes that there is still a lot that can be done and that a good tech infrastructure can be a big boost in improving this sector.
Medical record systems are highly fragmented, disorganized, and non-collaborative even in some developed countries. Many are still using legacy platforms and are not employing the latest available technologies. Some are exclusive and are not interoperable with other systems.
Thus health professionals are unable to optimize patient healthcare. In the same manner, patients have difficulty monitoring and organizing their medical data and history.
MYCURE’s vision is to securely organize medical records that will provide fast, safe, and efficient access to health professionals, enabling them to help and save more lives.
We believe that even small things can make a big difference. And that extra mile of care we give for humanity goes a long way and creates a lasting impact.
Thus, we honor and support people who care the extra mile. They are the unsung heroes, the doctors and other health professionals who work tirelessly to serve their patients.
While they see themselves as simply doing their everyday jobs, we see individuals that impact change on humanity; we see heroes that truly make the world a better place. MYCURE commits to design and build innovative tech tools and products specifically for our doctors and health professionals. Our goal is to help and enable these heroes, to make their jobs easier and more efficient.
They are our true inspirations, the reasons for our being and existence.
