Our Team

After a few years of working with organizations across the country to implement eConsults, we have learned that it takes more than just technology, people or process to become a meaningful part of clinical workflows. In fact, in order to truly empower primary care providers for success, it takes a thoughtfully assembled group of people with over 150 years of combined experience—in both healthcare and technology. It all started with our passionate founders and continues, every day, with our mission-driven RubiconMD team.

"Having grown up among doctors, I saw firsthand the value of providing basic healthcare services. Because of those experiences, I was excited, and humbled, to join RubiconMD, where we serve those who lack access to specialist care. I enjoy taking open-ended problems like those and creating a structured solution - and leading platform operations - allows me to do exactly that."
