DrChrono envisions a healthcare ecosystem that is revolutionized by technology through interdisciplinary collaboration. We believe that real change and progress can be made in the healthcare tech space only when joining forces across providers (psychology, psychiatry, etc) technology, entrepreneurship, and more.


Our mission is to inspire, enable, and empower the world’s leading hub of healthcare technology advocates by:

  • Fostering an inclusive community of changemakers, thought leaders, health care providers, and industry experts
  • Accelerating innovation through thought leadership, resources, tools, and connection
  • Guiding the evolution of health tech to ensure a positive and ethical social impact on the world

A Message from Our Cofounder

DrChrono would love to invite designers and developers to innovate new and refreshing tools to improve the Healthcare Ecosystem! We believe the best solutions in healthcare are built with technology prowess and an innovative spirit, not just from clinical expertise. So as a tech-forward developer, put yourself in the shoes of a Doctor, their patients, or their staff and build something that will bring their practice into the modern age of healthcare.

Throughout 2020, COVID-19 made a noticeable impact on the healthcare landscape. As the needs of patients and doctors across the country evolve, it’s important that the supporting technologies keep pace. DrChrono’s API provides developers the opportunity to do just that. Whether you build with a Primary Care Physician, Cardiologist, or Urgent Care Clinic in mind, you can make an immediate impact and build cutting edge tools on our platform.

Here are some questions to think about as you decide what to build:

  • How can we get Doctors to spend more time treating and connecting with patients?
  • How can we help patients find amazing doctors? How should doctors balance in-person visits vs telehealth visits?
  • What type of data can patients provide to their doctor for better health insights?
  • Can wearable technology be a useful diagnostic tool?
  • How can doctors create the very best patient experience?

We know there are many questions still to be uncovered and we encourage you to think outside of the box! Please develop any features, functionality, or applications that spark your interest and make sense on top of our API.

Here are some needs that Doctors may look for:

  • Online Scheduling Tools
  • Practice Communication Platform
  • Data Exchange from Doctor to Patient
  • Reporting Health Analytics
  • Intake & Outcome Management

All submissions will be considered for all categories for a chance to win a prize!
