Description: Ask The Doctor is a global company operating at the intersection of health and technology. Every day thousands of people from around the world use Ask The Doctor’s question form to ask their sensitive medical questions to a community of over 250,000+ general physicians and specialists. Once the questions are answered, they are published with all personal sensitive information removed, creating the worlds largest library of doctor-created knowledge.
These question and answer pairs are proving to be very valuable as they are used by the National Institutes of Health for AI research and to identify unmet medical needs. With the tremendous amount of gaps in healthcare systems around the world, Ask The Doctor is trying to make physicians more accessible and their platform has done just that helping over 5 million plus patients to date.
Because of this demand, Ask The Doctor decided it wanted to help our future leaders who share their vision of using technology to bridge gaps in healthcare. “We are pleased to announce our $125,000 scholarship pledge for 2018” says Prakash Chand, CEO of Ask The Doctor. “This initiative will help us aid the next generation of leaders who will shape the future of modern healthcare.”
