Doug Hirsch, CEO, GoodRX
Doug’s first company, DailyStrength.org, was one of the first big “profile-based” health online communities, a huge hit at the first Health 2.0 conference and now part of Jeff Arnold’s ShareCare empire. GoodRx has a simple to say but hard to achieve mission. How do you find the best price on drugs? GoodRx launched at Health 2.0 Fall 2011 and has had plenty of press which it helped raise $1 million since. As Doug was an early employee at both Yahoo! and Facebook, perhaps this panel should be named Health 2.02.
