"Health care is super-uninspiring to me. No one does it right," says Jay, who is looking to turn the industry on its back with Sherpaa's mobile health service. Sherpaa has hundreds of paying clients, including Etsy, Tumblr, and Meetup. By reducing unnecessary visits to the doctor's office, Sherpaa's service is reducing the number of insurance claims generated by employees and the hope is that businesses will save money by slowing or cutting their future insurance costs. This model is what Jay believes is the future of primary care.
Jay completed residencies in pediatrics and preventive medicine at Johns Hopkins University. He has given talks on the new frontiers that technology creates for medical care at over 50 conferences including TED, Google's Zeitgeist, the Clinton Global Initiative, The Aspen Institute, and Pop!Tech
