Areas of Expertise

  • Healthtech/Digital Health

    As an entrepreneur in this space, I acquired valuable experience in starting a digital health company (fundraising, business models, prototyping etc). I also engaged and developed relationships with leaders at payors, providers, and large retail health organizations. I would love to figure out how I can use what I learned and who I know to help you out with your efforts.

  • Population Health Management

    I had the chance to work in the Population Health Management group at Partners Healthcare.

    As Anant’s technical co-founder at Aavya Health, I was extremely impressed by his ability to effortlessly and fearlessly forge meaningful connections with key decision makers at some of the biggest names in the insurance and retail industries. He was able to remain calm and balanced during our ride on the start-up roller coaster and always held fast to his principles. As a doctor-entrepreneur, I’m certain Anant will leave a lasting positive impact on humanity. I am happy to have had the chance to work with him on this part of his journey.
