Jay Parkinson, MD
Jay Parkinson is a physician who lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. He was trained at Johns Hopkins in preventive medicine and pediatrics. He realized just what a mess the health care system is, with messy delivery processes and frustrating, expensive reimbursement methods. He figured the whole thing could change for the simpler. So he, along with the team at Myca, is building a platform that enables a new, common-sense practice for all health professionals: it's a social network to connect patients and health experts in-person and online in a totally new kind of practice. Hello Health is the power of Facebook, Amazon, and Zipcar...but brought to health care.
