drchrono is a medical platform for doctors and patients.

We are crafting only the best mobile healthcare experience, with a focus on iPad, iPhone and web. The driving force of our efforts is in changing the way people engage and experience healthcare through electronic health records. We're building some fascinating stuff.

We are a Silicon Valley startup, working out of the chronoplex in Mountain View, CA. Our focus is on building artistic, intricate, and useful products.

To thrive as a member of team drchrono, you must embrace our driven, creative, work-hard/play-hard environment. Picture a roller coaster with beverage and snacks breaks, free-lunch-fridays and ping-pong competitions. You would be part of an entrepreneurial, quick-witted, tough and curious team.

Since our inception, we have attracted over 70,000 physicians, 4 million patients and 500+ million in medical billing processed per year.

drchrono is ranked by INC 500 as one of the fastest growing private companies in America, growing 1834.1% over the last 3 years.

Silicon Valley Business Journal designated drchrono as the 4th fastest growing private company in the Silicon Valley and was voted the #1 mobile Electronic Health Record 2 years in a row by over 22,000 physicians in a survey conducted by Black Book Rankings.

We are featured on Apple.com .


We are always asking ourselves, how can we make physicians and patients life better through technology? Our team works on making healthcare better day by day.

What we do and look for in people we work with-

We don't settle.
Passion, be inspired.
Develop entrepreneurs.
Put a dent in the universe through healthcare.

No global movement springs from individuals. It takes an entire team united behind something big.
