patient talking to physician
The Story of mPATH®

Dr. Dave Miller first had the idea for mPATH when he found himself giving the same rushed speech about screening for cancer over and over again to his primary care patients. He wondered why healthcare wasn’t using technology to help patients better manage their care in the same way the travel industry was letting people find the best flights or train tickets online. This started Dave on a 20-year journey of developing and testing computer programs to teach patients about preventive health topics and connect them with needed care. Along this journey, Dave met Dr. Ajay Dharod, a computer & electrical engineer turned physician who had the same passion for using technology to improve patients’ lives and reduce physician workload. Ajay contributed his extensive knowledge of informatics and electronic health record architecture to grow the mPATH prototype into a fully functional secure application. Having proven mPATH’s ability to double cancer screening rates, Dave and Ajay are now expanding mPATH to other preventive care needs to help health systems close critical care gaps.
