Following treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma,
Michael O'Neil emerged inspired to finish the graduate studies interrupted unexpectedly by cancer. Moving from concept to business plan, Michael launched GetWellNetwork® in August 2000 to tackle an unaddressed problem in healthcare: empowering patients to take control of their journey. Michael's vision for transforming the patient experience launched a healthcare technology segment called Interact Patient Care. Two decades later, Get Well works with leading healthcare organization and touches millions of patients and families around the world. Today he leads the global digital health company as founder and CEO.
Today's healthcare goes beyond an episode of care; it starts outside of the walls of the hospital, as people choose to consume and manage their healthcare differently. In this new era of consumerism, elevating the patient experience throughout the healthcare journey can significantly enhance care and reduce costs. By implementing a digital-first engagement and access strategy that leverages AI-driven outreach, hospitals can lift the burden off their care teams while meeting consumer expectations for a personalized, self-service experience.
