Too Long; Didn't Read
The author met a product manager at a company that was trying to modernize a clinical analytics platform. The product, Phiona, was an advanced data query platform built for a large hospital in a time before electronic medical records and cloud databases.

They brought in a technical co-founder to build out a cloud-based version of the tool with natural language search.
