Dr. Indrajit Choudhuri hadn’t set out to launch a company.
But, as an electrophysiologist with the Froedtert South Medical Group, he saw a problem in the health care industry that needed a solution.
Patient data is often housed across various platforms, requiring specialists like Choudhuri to log onto several portals to seek out a full picture of a patient’s medical information. Electronic health record platforms house a lot of information, but they aren’t comprehensive.
“Using the systems that we use today, the information is scattered all over the place. On a patient-by-patient basis, I never had a great sense of confidence that I wasn’t missing something,” he said.
Choudhuri began developing in 2017 the idea for what would become MediCardia – a digital health platform designed to aggregate, organize and operationalize comprehensive clinical data for clinicians.
Initially bootstrapped by Choudhuri, the company incorporated in 2020, received its first round of angel funding that year, and has since raised a $3 million seed round. MediCardia, which is in Verona-based Epic Systems’ App Orchard platform, is now focused on bringing the product to market.
In a change-averse industry, Choudhuri said his company is focused on innovating to improve patient care, reduce provider burnout and lower costs.
“Changing the industry is what’s required,” he said.
