Our mission

Connect the world’s healthcare information

When patients have insights into their health, they can make more informed decisions which leads to better health outcomes.

Our founding story

Huda Idrees, Founder & CEO of Dot Health, was facing a challenge.

“When I first stumbled onto this concept of Dot Health I was building it for one person. It was my friend’s dad.

He had been diagnosed with late-stage cancer and was having trouble trying to keep up with everything the doctors were throwing at him. He was going through chemotherapy, and had no way for him to track whether it was working or not.

And so, using a very bare-bones version of Dot Health, I showed him a trend line visualizing his cancer-marker progress week over week. He then wanted to share the graph we built for him with his doctor. 

I imagined that healthcare systems would have this already – a way for patients and doctors to be able to see the same thing. Lo and behold, that’s not true at all. If patients are lucky they get a printout, or if the patient is super motivated to go to another doctor for a second opinion, then they need to go down to some basement and ask for their own health records, stand in line, fill out a form, and then they get it in the mail three weeks later. It’s a very paper-based process that’s quite manual and quite difficult to access.”

So Dot Health was born, because we believe there’s a better way: one that empowers patients with the necessary information to make the best decisions they can about their health.
