Smart Health Ltd First Anniversary
27 April 2017
As, Smart Health Ltd, celebrates its first anniversary, we wish to thank all our users and supporters who gave us the opportunity to make a difference in their life. We launched Smart Health Ltd last year on 27th April 2016 and used our own personal savings for past 15 months since we left our clinical job in January 2016. We did not take any salary from the company and focused only on making our brainchild, Smart Health, grow. In this 1 year of existence, we accomplished amazing things which we feel proud to share with you. In 2014, we coded our first application, Doctor Assistant. Following that came an amazing learning journey to launch a viable enterprise.
Two medical doctors, passionate about computer programming and electronics, embarked on a challenge to make healthcare services more accessible, affordable and efficient. Learning to code in our free time and using Internet resources, we designed and coded our applications taking care to cater for the users requirements. Three years later our applications have an impressive user adoption and more than 10,000 downloads across the world.
Who said, we need to be in Silicon Valley to do that ? We did it in the Tropical Valley of Mauritius. Never give up on your dreams ! Set achievable goals and get to work !
In blue are the areas of the world where our applications are currently being used.
