Sangeeta Gupte experienced the loss of a close friend early in the COVID-19 pandemic. The particular circumstances of her friend's passing led her to seek a way to prevent this scenario from happening to other people.

During her search, she found inspiration from a physician developing solutions that intended to maximize healthcare services' resource allocations and provide better home monitoring tools for patients whose symptoms are not critical, but who should also be in communication with, and under the care of, healthcare professionals. After communicating with the doctor-turned-advocate/entrepreneur, her background and desire to make a difference resulted in an invitation to be part of the team working to improve the country's response to the crisis, as well as to change the future of medicine in the digital age.
