Sona Mehring, Founder and CEO, CaringBridge
The first CaringBridge website in 1997 was coded over the weekend by Sona, to help a friend tell their friends about a high-risk pregnancy. Now the patient sites are ubiquitous across the web and promoted by hospitals, non-profits, patients groups and many more. CaringBridge’s not-for-profit status and donation funding model aren’t exactly typical at Health 2.0, and Sona explains how it’s worked so well.
Sona is interviewed by Chris Rauber, San Francisco Business Times. Chris has been following health care and doing some of the best business reporting on it for longer than he might care to admit.
