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 hard-earned Georgetown law degree, he set out to tackle an unaddressed problem in health care: how to successfully engage patients and families in the care process.
Dr. Karen Drenkard leads GetWellNetwork’s clinical team, advising on best practice implementation in the use of technology to enhance the patient and family experience. As head of the O’Neil Center, the patient engagement industry’s first “think tank,” she oversees research and efforts to help health care providers translate patient and family engagement theory into practice.
Robin Cavanaugh drives innovation and technology strategy for GetWellNetwork. A company veteran of nearly 20 years, his vision and expertise have been integral in the company’s evolution to become the leader in patient engagement technology. Responsible for R&D, product architecture and development, he steers solutions from prototype to production and creates scalable, integrated systems.
Nikia Bergan is leading the charge to expand GetWellNetwork’s domestic and international footprint. She drives long-term growth strategy and ensures integration and alignment across functions and business units. Her holistic approach to serving key accounts is pivotal in securing partnerships with some of the largest, most progressive health systems in the country.
