Joseph is passionate about improving work flow for physicians, thus, his first product is a secure text messaging service that makes physician’s existing communication devices (pagers, cell phone calls, voice messages, faxes) seem so Health 1.0. The company has recently raised $6 million from investors and they have some impressive customers, including his residency hospital, Mt. Sinai.
