The simple visual shows how knowledge and compassion are inseparable parts of delivering a high quality of care. We want to dedicate our new brand to the healthcare community and nation and pledge to serve our shared mission.”
“I am very excited to be joining the MedLern team,” said Deepak Sharma. “Since we launched our mission last year in January, we have innovated rapidly to develop new strategies to support the hospital and healthcare community. Our digital platform is helping hospitals and healthcare workers stay battle ready. Managing ongoing changes to the work environment, protocols for infection control and emergencies is as critical fighting the burnout stress. It’s time that our frontline warriors had the best knowledge tools at their disposal to deliver a global standard of care.
