How would you describe what you do at HealthSparq?
I try to make sure that the right people are working on the right things in the right order… and that they’re doing it efficiently. Specifically, I do all this around building our product platform so that our company can continue rapid innovation.
What’s your favorite part about working here?
My colleagues. They are smart and passionate and always willing to help solve a problem.
What’s one interesting fact about you?
In my next life I’d like to be a race car driver. Even though I’m not currently a "car guy" at all.
If you could make one prediction for the future of health care, what would it be?
I’d like health care to be less complicated for all the interested parties – mainly for consumers, but for all the interested parties. Whether you’re from a health plan, an employer or a health care provider, I believe we’ll achieve a simpler health care system by continuing to open up the industry to be a more market-driven ecosystem.
