«When Abdullah Norain was a resident surgeon at Mayo Clinic and frequently traveled to conferences, he was struck by the lack of an ability to continue the stimulating conversations he had with his peers.»

«“After each conference, researchers and clinicians would want to connect and extend the conversation, but there wasn’t a place or forum for that,” he said. “They can’t really go on Twitter or LinkedIn because there are HIPAA concerns with social media.”»

«To address this problem, Norain began building PeerCapsule in February with his co-founder and chief technology officer King David Martins. The Phoenix-based startup, which is developing a collaboration platform for professional healthcare associations, recently received an influx of funds from the AWS Impact Accelerator program, a $30 million commitment to young startups led by founders from underrepresented groups.»

 «PeerCapsule is building a platform for national and regional provider associations that would enable the groups to not only engage their members internally, but also give members the opportunity to network and collaborate with professionals from other specialties and organizations.»
