“The vision that took root in France, I wanted to take to other parts of the world. So my vision blossomed into something more: to see a world where medical records are stored online, so they can be accessed right when you need them, no matter where you are in the world. And where anyone, anywhere can get an unbiased second medical opinion from world-class physicians in just 48 hours. To help people be more than well – to be well prepared.”
