Keep minimalistic data structure

You need data

Build a team

  • People to monitor new clinics and add their info
  • People to check availability for existing clinics
  • Software developers to build scrapers and automate
  • Business people to build relations with similar efforts and share data. Without help of others you won’t survive
  • People for community outreach, media outreach
  • UX and Web design
  • Customer support
  • ….

Move fast

Technical recap

  • Airtable
  • Static website with embedded airtable
