Our leadership team
It takes leadership to bring greatness to patient and family engagement.
Following aggressive surgery and chemotherapy treatments for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at age 28, Michael O’Neil emerged healthy, humbled and inspired. Shelving his Georgetown law degree, he set out on a mission to help health care organizations better engage patients and families in the care process. Michael started GetWellNetwork on the premise that active and involved patients are healthier patients.
