About applying with us:

The healthcare industry (hospitals, insurance companies, public health, clinic networks, pharma providers and distributors, and patients themselves) is beholden to strict requirements for data privacy and security requirements that it then applies to its digital health vendors.  These complex requirements slow the development and adoption of important solutions.

MedStack provides a new way for digital health to be built, implemented and scaled, faster, more efficiently and with data privacy protection at the centre.  Have a look at how MedStack thinks about the problem they're going after.

The solution MedStack delivers:

The core offering is MedStack Control, a turnkey compliance solution designed to help healthcare innovators integrate out-of-the-box, proven privacy and security compliance guarantees in the way the industry requires them, thanks to pre-designed cloud security, policies and attestations.  Because of our platform approach, every one of our customers helps make Medstack's offering stronger for every other.
