When English-educated doctor and software engineer Gautam Sivakumar founded Medisas, he set out to solve a problem he faced in the workforce. Frustrated by the lack of usable software at his hospital, he built a solution to his biggest pain point: doctor to doctor patient care communication. The result was a cloud-based tool that allowed doctors and nurses to safely transfer patient care between shifts, a process known as the ‘handoff’.
Dr. Gautam Sivakumar is the founder & CEO of Medisas. Dr. Sivakumar practiced as a surgical fellow at NHS England before founding Medisas to improve patient care with software. He studied at Newcastle Medical School in the United Kingdom and worked as a designer and programmer prior to becoming a physician. Medisas builds a clinical workflow automation platform to help hospitals provide safer, more efficient care and is backed by Khosla Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, SV Angel, FundersClub, and a handful of prominent angel investors.
