Most recently, as DrChrono sought to support physicians and patients through the Covid-19 pandemic, the Engineering Organization successfully launched a Telehealth product in just weeks.

DrChrono Engineering plays a critical role in delivering innovative products from inception to mass adoption. You’ll be able to use your expertise and creative talents to build things while working closely with product, design, and other departments.

Our Engineering Organization supports the following areas of our platform:

Provider Team: Electronic Health Records are at the center of what every provider does on a daily basis and include items like clinical notes, prescriptions, and labs. Help write the code that medical providers use at the point of care. Innovative patient care anytime and anywhere on your iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch. Experience a mobile EHR that is sleeker, faster, and more convenient than a laptop.

Patient Team: You will work on the newest feature of our product that allows patients and providers to communicate remotely. You will also develop the code that allows patients to view their own information from the practices that they patronize. Here you will work on all of the technologies that connect those who need care to those that can provide it.

Payments Team: You will write the code that allows providers to be paid! All of our practices rely on the ability to use the software in order to get paid and thus this is a primary component of our product.

Practice Team: Providers cannot effectively help their patients if their practices are not managed correctly. We fix this. In this area, you will develop features that help the medical practice schedule appointments and communicate with the patients as well as manage their internal workflows

Platform Team: Underlying all of the components of the product is the platform itself. Here you’ll be working with cloud providers, system configuration, security, architecture, and middleware components that keep our product up and running.

Remote Work Statement We've moved forward with a remote-first approach. This means current and new DrChrono employees will always be allowed to work remotely, regardless if they were hired onsite or offsite pre-Covid19. We are committed to providing all employees with the necessary tools and support to perform their work from home without any disruption
