Our Origin Story

Whether through my experiences as a psychiatrist, technology creator or academic researcher, I saw that so many people had great ideas and passion to help others through technology but faced a lot of barriers  - expensive servers and programmers, complex security and compliance requirements, and expertise around technology and design.

In the U.S., only 0.1% work as computer programmers.

Yet 100% of us are experts in our own lives through our own lived experience.

This leaves 99.9% of people who are close to problems and who best understand the right solutions, facing barriers that keep them from making their ideas a reality.

I asked myself, “Why can’t everyone be able to create digital technologies?”

This led to the creation of the Chorus platform. Over the years, researchers, clinicians, community leaders, and health systems have used Chorus to create amazing things - with the features of the platform created within and for healthcare and communities.

It has become clear that democratizing technology, helping everyone to be a creator, and upending the existing dynamic of tech companies determining what gets to be created, will be transformative in health and the pathway to making a better and more equitable world.
