Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Following treatment for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Michael O’Neil emerged inspired to finish the graduate studies interrupted unexpectedly by cancer. Moving from concept to business plan, Michael launched GetWellNetwork in August 2000 to tackle an unaddressed problem in healthcare: empowering patients to take control of their healthcare journey. Michael’s vision for transforming the patient experience launched a healthcare technology segment called Interactive Patient Care. Two decades later, Get Well works with leading healthcare organizations and touches millions of patients and families around the world. Today, he leads the global digital health company as founder and CEO.
Michael also serves as executive chairman at PerfectServe, a private equity-backed clinical communications company and as a limited partner of two early-stage venture capital firms focused on digital health. Michael is a past board member for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the DAISY Foundation and serves on the board of the Washington, D.C. chapter of the Young Presidents Organization. Michael is a former Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Winner and in 2019 was named an Aspen Institute Health Innovators Fellow. In 2021, he received The Global Good Fund’s Social Entrepreneur of the Year award and Georgetown Entrepreneurial Alliance’s Social Impact award. Today, Michael leads breakthrough work leveraging AI and community navigators to address maternal health equity and youth mental health among underserved communities.
Michael holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Notre Dame and a Juris Doctor and Master of Business Administration from Georgetown University. He lives in Chevy Chase, MD with his wife and two daughters.
