our mission

putting me back in medicine

As caregivers ourselves, we set out to help simplify the complexities of the medical world for parents and caregivers. Regardless of your child’s age or medical situation, keeping track of everything is hard. We built mejo to help keep your child’s medical and care information beautifully organized, tailored to your needs and easy to share. Our mission is our tag line - 'putting me back in medicine'.

meet the sheedy family

Hi, we’re the Sheedy family! In our family, one of our sons has an extremely rare genetic disorder called Costello Syndrome, and the other two sons are typical kids who are healthy. We have experienced many situations in the healthcare arena. We've managed countless specialists, coordinated surgeries, administered hourly medications, looked for answers and have heard "tell me about what’s going on with your son?” too many times to count. So, we’ve been there, and we want to help.

We started the concept of mejo a couple years ago via a PowerPoint while sitting in the NICU as new parents with our twins. Over the years we’ve spoken with many caregivers. They all identify a need for a single tool to help them organize their little one’s journey in a visual way. Most information is scattered across multiple medical record platforms that don’t speak to the caregiver in a way that makes sense.

A lot of healthcare is missing the human element. mejo is not just about medications, surgeries, height and weight. It also helps keep track of the things that make your little one unique- knowing that a child loves high-fives and the baby shark song or that he only eats through a g-tube is just important as his medications or his blood type.

We created mejo to be simple, high level and go beyond the chart. Whether you have one medically complex kid or multiple children you're trying to keep organized, mejo is for you!

meet the koncak family

Hi, we’re the Koncak family! In our family, healthcare was always central given Bret's 20+ years working in healthcare technology. He was often out at hospitals visiting with doctors, nurses, and administrators as part of his previous executive role at Cerner, a large healthcare IT company.

While his background was immensely helpful in understanding healthcare, it didn't fully prepare our family for everything we needed to know when both of our sons were impacted by sudden, acute, & severe rare diseases. Experiencing healthcare from the viewpoint of the caregiver rather than the provider or patient was eye opening. There was a ton to do and we were given very little guidance on how to really do it. We found ourselves capturing and communicating to one another with jotted down notes scattered all over the place. There had to be a better way!

That is why we joined the Sheedy family in their mission to deliver tools and solutions like mejo that are purpose built for caregivers so they can do what they do best-take care of their loved ones!
