Jay Parkinson MD, MPH

Physician, founder, designer

Over the last 15 years, I’ve built companies from the ground up that defined categories in healthcare delivery that are now common language. I’ve ideated the concept; raised money; built the team; built the tech; choreographed the care model processes; operated in both a funded and self-sustaining financial environment; and shepherded an acquisition. My career has grown from building a private practice to get my very first patient to building platforms that power care for hundreds of thousands of patients across the entire country.

In partnership with Grant Harrison, who previously served as Chief Innovation Officer at Humana, we consulted for domestic and international companies like Sanofi, Humana, Planned Parenthood, and the NHS in the UK. At a time when the internet had an unknown impact on large healthcare companies, we helped them understand how they could use new forms of technology and communication to best connect with their patients.
