Our ailing healthcare system is in dire need of change, and today's rapid advances in web technology will be a huge part of the solution. The approaches taken thus far have failed to acknowledge the core of what healthcare is: the interaction between a physician and a patient. Elation aims to dramatically reshape the practice of medicine by becoming a powerful facilitator of that trusted relationship.
Elation is an angel-funded healthcare technology startup dedicated to improving the clinical encounter. Our team currently consists of extremely passionate founders who bring years of health IT and healthcare industry experience and are deeply committed to improving the delivery of healthcare. Our investors include a practicing physician and the creators and backers of some of the world's largest and most innovative web companies, including Asana, Facebook, and Quora.
In the near term, we are focused on building an innovative web-based electronic medical record for physician practices. Our alpha product -- built by the founders -- has gone live, and we have aggressive plans to expand its use.
We are currently seeking extraordinary engineering talent to form the core of our technical team. As one of the first hires, you will play a key role in shaping the team and culture, architecting the foundations of a very complex system, and designing the experience for a highly demanding user. No healthcare experience is needed, but you should be excited about building technology that has the potential to deeply impact people's lives.
