At 28, GetWellNetwork’s founder and CEO Michael O’Neil faced a major health crisis: He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma while finishing his Juris Doctor and Master of Business Administration at Georgetown Law. After aggressive surgery and chemotherapy treatments, Michael eventually emerged healthy, humbled and inspired. He shelved his hard-earned law degree and set out to tackle an unaddressed problem in health care. Two decades later, Michael’s vision of transforming the patient experience – through Precision Engagement™ – has become a core strategy for health care providers worldwide. GetWellNetwork® is the Precision Engagement™ health care company. Our solutions engage patients and families, empower clinicians and deliver outcomes that matter.
