MyBeepr was born in Sydney in 2016 with one simple goal in mind: empowering healthcare providers and medical staff to securely communicate with each other.
Unfortunately, we live in a world where every bit of communication and data we transmit through our phones and computers is owned and controlled by some unknown company in an unknown place which can be scary. This is why we created MyBeepr. MyBeepr provides a powerful team communication experience across all devices. We complement a simple user experience with advanced security architecture to deliver the latest in communication technology to the healthcare world.
Today we are dealing with some of the largest hospitals around Australia who rely on MyBeepr to make communication in healthcare simple, secure and efficient.
Krupa Bhagani received a degree in Commerce/Law and is also a qualified Chartered Accountant. Beginning her career in Tax law at PricewaterhouseCoopers, she soon realized her passion for all things technology and entrepreneurialism and commenced working in product strategy for a boutique software engineering company; working for some of Australia’s leading startups.
Krupa having been introduced to the healthcare system when caring for her terminally ill father for several years, believes the health industry may not need a SnapChat for Doctors but with the fragmented use of pagers, phone calls, SMS and emails there’s a need for an easy to use and secure tool that integrates all these methods, making the patients’ and the doctors’ experience a lot more pleasant.
Kruti is a bit of a chameleon, forever learning and adapting. After graduating from B Commerce, she commenced her career in Corporate Advisory at Deloitte and soon after making her move to the UK with Goldaman Sachs. Somehow, her passion for strategy led her to starting her first ever startup, which she exited in 2014.
Forever trying to change the world, Kruti always comes up with brilliant ways of doing things better, which has led her to her current role to improve communication in healthcare. After personally experiencing the lack of efficient communication between doctors and patients when caring for her terminally ill father, she’s looking to make an impact in the healthcare industry.
