Event Details

Entrepreneurs Club Series: Pelu Tran, President, Chief Customer Officer, Cofounder, Augmedix.

Pelu and his cofounder started Augmedix, a digital health company, while Pelu was a Stanford Medical School student. Pelu observed the EHR was getting more physician face time than the patient. Augmedix’s solution was to use technology — Google Glass – to allow physicians to chart remotely and rehumanize the doctor/patient interaction. Investors like the approach: Augmedix has raised $63MM. Five of the biggest US healthcare providers have invested, validation that these systems see the benefit of devoting more time to patient care. Hear Pelu’s story about deciding to leave Med School to start a company and Augmedix’ formula for success in the crowded digital health space.
