MYCURE | Our Story
MYCURE starts and ends with real people.
Meet Paulette, a young widow at 30 years old with two kids (4 yo and 6 yo) in her care. Despite limited resources, she managed to give her kids a good foundation. Paulette is a cancer warrior and survivor. For about a decade and a half now, her life was all about doctor's visits, regular checkups, and staying healthy. Years of medical files were definitely taking up a lot of space in their home and her daily life. As she was shuttling between Guam (where she is based) and the Philippines, carrying medical files to different doctors and pharmacies was becoming cumbersome and costly. Replenishing medications became a guessing game. Monitoring her own health sometimes affected her health too.
Our founder, Dale, was witness to all of this. Paulette is Dale’s mother.
About the Founders
Dale runs a tech company that started in 2004. Among numerous IT projects, their team also made the first Filipino-themed game on iTunes and Googleplay called Sipa and a mobile photo diary meant to tell your story through photos called Pickld. He regularly shares experiences being a Mentor and Director at Founder Institute (Manila). He also started Mighty Minds, a nonprofit organization that helps kids finish school.
Joel is a marketing executive and has been involved in the field for the last 20 years. His work involves a lot of travel and he loves to explore and talk to local folks during these times. Through these encounters, he was able to get a closer look at the plight of the Filipinos with regard to medical and health access. He believes that there are still a lot that can be done and that a good tech infrastructure can be a big boost in improving this sector.
The Problem We Are Trying To Solve
Medical record systems are highly fragmented, disorganized, and non-collaborative even in some developed countries. Many are still using legacy platforms and not employing the latest available technologies. Some systems are exclusive and not interoperable with other systems.
Thus, health professionals are not able to optimize patient healthcare. In the same manner, it is very difficult for patients to monitor and organize their medical data and history.
MYCURE’s vision is to securely organize medical records that will provide fast, safe, and efficient access to health professionals, enabling them to help and save more lives.
We believe that even the small things can make a big difference. And that extra mile of care we give for humanity goes a long way and creates a lasting impact.
Thus, we honor and support people who care the extra mile. They are the unsung heroes, the doctors and other health professionals who work day and night to make things work.
While they see themselves just doing their everyday jobs, we see people that create a dent in humanity. They are truly the heroes that make this world a better place.
MYCURE commits to design and build amazing tech tools and products specifically for them. These would help and enable these heroes to make their jobs easier and more efficient. They are our inspiration, the reason of our being, our existence.
