Background

About Lauren

I am a healthcare professional about to complete my MSc degree (Information Management) in September 2017. I have approximately 6.5 years of experience working in the healthcare space in the U.S. at a commercial health insurer (business development and account management roles), health system/provider operations (project manager for a provider led health plan) and a clinically integrated network and subsidiary of a large health system (software implementation manager (and wore a number of other hats). For additional information regarding my education and experience please refer to my LinkedIn profile (link provided above). Resume/CV available upon request.

I have used my MSc dissertation research to prove my business concept. I have already completed the customer discovery aspects for the patient users (275 individuals across the UK and US were surveyed), but am working to validate the concept with health focused organizations. The nature of my idea challenges conventional approaches to physican-patient communication, assessment and clinical care management methods. The larger vision is to provide more equitable care for all patients (regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, etc.) and empower patients to take a more active role in shared decision making with their clinicians.

I am seeking a technical co-founder and (ideally) has a strong financial acumen. This individual should preferably have some knowledge of the healthcare space, but it is not essential. Above all, it's critical to find the right partner who is equally thrilled/jazzed about this concept, believes in its potential and does what they say they will do (loyalty, integrity, follow through).
