Curaspan was founded by two entrepreneurs who fled structured, restrictive, status quo-loving corporate jobs to do two things:
Solve Difficult Problems
In 2001, Curaspan rolled out the first ever automated solution to a very complicated problem—how to streamline and improve the fax, phone, paper-based and highly regulated process of discharging and transitioning patients from hospitals.
