Drug search engine Diagnosia launched


This monday we interviewed Martin Poreda, the CEO of the Vienna based kununu. Now we have just another life sign out of the Austrian capital: The launch of Diagnosia, a startup wich wants to become “Europeʻs premier drug search engine”. The young company was founded in 2010 and is seed-funded from private investors and the Austria Wirtschafts Service (AWS). According to Diagnosia the funding is in the 6-figures. The new drug search engine supports 22 languages right from the start. Diagnosia users (patients and physicians) are enabled to look up medicine information for free, but there are plans to offer aggregated and of course anonymous data to the drugs industry and develop tools and services for pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies. The founding team consists of Eric Pfarl, Stefan Weixelbaumer, Dr. Lukas Zinnagl, Dr. Fritz Höllerer and Marco Vitula.
