StartupHoyas MED Fireside Chat: Michael O'Neil

Please join us for an enriching conversation with Michael O'Neil, Founder and CEO of GetWellNetwork.

Please join us for our first fireside chat of the 2019-2020 academic year. As a continuation of our Digital Health Founder series, we will be sitting down with Michael O'Neil, Founder and CEO of GetWellNetwork, to gain insight from his experience in the digital health sphere.

Following aggressive surgery and chemotherapy treatments for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at age 28, founder & CEO Michael O’Neil emerged healthy, humbled and inspired. Shelving his hard-earned Georgetown law degree, he set out to tackle an unaddressed problem in health care: how to successfully engage patients and families in the care process.

Drawing from his experience, Michael started GetWellNetwork on the premise that a more active and involved patient is a better, healthier patient. Nearly two decades later, his vision for transforming the patient experience has become a core strategy for hospitals around the globe and given millions a voice in their care.

Michael serves on the board of directors for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and The DAISY Foundation, and is an E&Y Entrepreneur of the Year award winner. He holds a bachelor of arts from the University of Notre Dame and a juris doctor and master of business administration from Georgetown University.
