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.

“As a primary care physician who has spent my entire career in the safety net, I've been fascinated by eConsults as a solution to challenges many patients face in accessing specialty care. My work on eConsults has been in implementation, research, policy, advocacy and technical assistance. It's thrilling to be on the technology side of the innovation and ensure that access to high quality specialty care is a right, not a privilege.”
