Jay Mason, President & Co-founder, MyHealthDIRECT
After years in insurance and starting a nationwide complementary care network, Jay founded MyHealthDIRECT in 2005. It took him a couple of years to convince people that an appointment scheduling system for Medicaid providers and community clinics was a viable proposition, but you’ll see today that it both does good and makes business sense. There’s similar idealistic vision behind Jay’s work in his support of Christian education and charities in the US, and in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Ethan Austin, Co-Founder, GiveForward
After fundraising online for a charity marathon, Ethan began to wonder what other causes the same tools could be used for. He then met Desiree Wrigley who was looking for a partner to do the same thing. GiveForward is the result. It helps people create an online fundraising page, and most people use it as a tool to get help with medical expenses.
Bart Foster, Founder & CEO, SoloHealth
Bart has a background of being entrepreneurial with big companies (Novartis, Kellogs), but SoloHealth is a start-up on a mission to put thousands of its self-service networked diagnostic units in retail stores across America. You can check (and get educated about) your weight, vision, blood pressure and more. Is this a glimpse into the future of automated routine primary care? Here Bart shows us SoloHealth for the first time.
