Made by doctors, for doctors
Ava was founded by Dr. Mike Forseth and Dr. Matt Henschke to replace clumsy, complicated, and overpriced EMRs.
To create an EMR that understands medicine and our workflows.
Ava is owned and operated by physicians. We’re responsible to you – not to shareholders or board members. Over a period of 38 months we refined every view, action and workflow process. We launched a beta test in our own clinic. Each feature has a purpose.
We built something better.
After using Ava in our own clinic, we quickly realized we had created something that could help clinics, healthcare providers, and patients across the country. The positive reaction that Ava has received only confirms our belief that we built something better.
