Cupris was founded by Jules Hamann, a Consultant ENT Surgeon, and Paul Thomas, an award-winning designer and entrepreneur, to develop medical devices that exploit smartphone technology to improve healthcare communication.
Jules felt that a significant proportion of the patients he saw in clinic could be cared for without coming to see him in person. We believe that smartphone technology can enable examinations to take place closer to the patient's home and away from over-crowded hospitals.
Jules, Paul and Mike believe that providing equal access to healthcare for everyone is an essential step in the future of healthcare and want to enable patients to be treated wherever they are, no matter how remote.
Each employee at Cupris Health cares deeply about revolutionising healthcare delivery and making a profound difference to people's lives through the work that we do.
We empower patients and create better tools for healthcare professionals to provide improved care. We enhance existing relationships between doctors and patients using ubiquitous technology to transform healthcare communication. We allow healthcare professionals to discuss patient cases with their peers and request specialist advice from their colleagues to improve patient outcomes.
