Michael O’Neil had the misfortune to contract non-hodgkin’s lymphoma while in graduate school. His medical outcome was good but his experience as a patient was not. He founded GetWellNetwork (GWN) to provide an interactive patient engagement solution to help patients move from dependence to independence in the course of their care. The company’s solutions are found in 200 hospitals and are credited with lowering readmissions, increasing staff responsiveness, and increasing patient satisfaction with pain control.

I caught up with Michael at #HIMSS14 in Orlando and asked him to tell his story.
