Mission & Vision
Vivacare is committed to enabling medical professionals to empower their patients. We seek to enhance the physician-patient relationship and improve clinical care.
Since drawing images for patients on the exam room table paper and authoring some of the first online health references published by WebMD, Dr. Becker has sought ways to share medical information with his patients and others to help them make informed medical decisions and navigate the complexities of their care. Vivacare was started to provide busy medical professionals with the tools to do the same.
Vivacare’s web-based service made it easy for physicians to make their own website and helpful resource for patients and strengthen the physician’s rusted voice online.
The launch of Vivacare mobile app provides more robust functions that support patients and the professionals who care for them.
The Vivacare management team is experienced developing a wide range of digital health services for medical professionals.
