About Us

"Delivering on the promise of healthcare technology."


Founded in October 2011, Photon originated from the vision of orthopedic surgeons recognizing the imperative for technology to enhance patient data accessibility and streamline communication channels between emergency rooms and on-call physicians. Over time, our technological solutions have evolved to cater to the comprehensive needs of all physicians and healthcare providers within a hospital setting and extend to the broader healthcare community.

At the heart of our mission is the commitment to simplify healthcare delivery, expediting positive outcomes. Our applications are were designed by doctors, for doctors to boast modern user interfaces characterized by ease of learning and intuitive use.

As a testament to our growth, Photon’s headquarters recently expanded to the Portales Corporate Center in Scottsdale, AZ, solidifying our dedication to advancing healthcare technology.
