BITSCOPIC is a diverse team of talented scientists, engineers, innovators, and healthcare professionals united in the firm belief that technology can help solve real life healthcare challenges.

BITSCOPIC honors the legacy of a beloved friend and Veteran who was hospitalized and, despite best efforts, passed away from a hospital-acquired infection. Founders Payam Etminani and Farshid Sedghi, two tech industry disruptors, saw the promise of machine learning and AI technology to help prevent such incidents, and significantly improve patient outcomes, care equity, and well-being at scale.
