About Heath

I'm building a company called HealthSumit, in the Healthcare IT space in Silicon Valley, CA. HealthSumit has the potential to drive down medical costs in the US to a significant degree by putting confirmed medical cost information in the hands of healthcare consumers BEFORE they undergo procedures. We're also building the capability to detect some forms of healthcare fraud when they are perpetrated on the public. Healthcare costs in the US continue to skyrocket. Healthcare currently compromises 18% of our GDP and will bankrupt the country if it's left unchecked by the power of the free market.

I'm still in the early stages of building the company, but I'm working with a capable team and we have an proof of concept built. My personal background is in venture capital and business development. I've coached dozens of startup companies and have a great deal of experience working on business and financial models. I've seen what works and what doesn't, and I've lived through the trying times with founders. I hope this experience will make me a capable CEO.

I'm looking for someone based in the San Francisco Bay Area (or willing to travel there often) with a positive personality who has knowledge of backend data management, OCR, Anglular, Node, and web design (pretty much in that order). As I said, I have a team that's worked on the proof of concept, so I need someone who's capable of quickly and confidently analyzing others' work, while contributing to a vision and pitching in to do coding themselves on various elements.

We have an incredible opportunity to make a difference in people's lives by giving them the information and power to make decisions themselves, rather than having costs dictated to them when they're at their most desperate and vulnerable. If you'd like to make a difference, please let me know of your interest and I look forward to speaking with you.
