Jay Parkinson


Jay Parkinson, MD, MPH, is a doctor in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, who uses his experience in both clinical and preventive medicine to design consumer experiences and business opportunities that create health. He was trained at Johns Hopkins in preventive medicine and pediatrics. He realized just what a mess the health care system is, with messy delivery processes and frustrating experiences. He figured it could be simpler. So Jay co-founded Hello Health, a novel way of experiencing healthcare via a Facebook-like platform that uses office visits, email, instant messaging and video chat to restore the traditional doctor-patient relationship. Jay currently has a design firm, The Future Well, focused on creating the future of health and well-being.
