Impacting Preventative Health with Dr. Jonathan Baktari

This episode’s Community Champion Sponsor is Catalyst. To virtually tour Catalyst and claim your space on campus, or host an upcoming event: https://www.catalysthealthtech.com/ (CLICK HERE) --- Episode Overview: When our next guest was at the peak of his medical career as a triple board-certified physician, he saw an opportunity to write his second career chapter as a health care CEO. Taking everything he’d learned as a doctor, medical director, and educator, he launched two businesses - a vaccine clinic and a drug-testing enterprise - driven by technology and designed for fast, customer-centric service. Dr. Jonathan Baktari, founder and CEO of e7 Health, joins us to discuss how his leadership positions within the clinical, educational, administrative, and insurance company settings positioned him to build world services and technologies to serve Americans across the country and to make a material impact on preventative medicine. Join us to learn how Dr. Baktari and the e7 Health team have built an industry-leading systems company that has invested heavily in developing electronic cloud-based software to leverage technology for their operations, patients, and clients.

Episode Highlights: Dr. Jonathan’s story from being a medical student to e7 Health’s CEO Why Dr. Baktari chose to focus on preventive medicine and adult vaccination How e7 Health was a COVID company before COVID hit The importance of a strong digital presence for healthcare companies About Our Guest: When Jonathan Baktari, M.D., was arguably at the peak of his medical career as a triple board-certified physician, he saw an opportunity to try something new. Taking everything he’d learned as a doctor, medical director, and educator, he launched two businesses—a vaccine clinic and a drug-testing enterprise—that are driven by technology and designed for fast, customer-centric service. Now, as those businesses grow, he’s continuing to write his second career chapter as a health care CEO. Dr. Baktari’s company e7 Health was named the best technology company in the healthcare space in 2019. e7 Health could best be described as “the Uber of preventive medicine” in that it is a systems company that has invested heavily in developing their own electronic cloud-based software to leverage technology for the benefit of their operation, patients, and clients.

After being named 1st Team All PAC-10 and playing in the Rose Bowl with the Stanford Cardinal the following year – all while earning his BA and MA – Mike hung up his football cleats and brought his unwavering determination and collaborative spirit to the field of healthcare.

As a Board Member for Medical Group Management Association, Prime Health, Colorado Bioscience Association, and several other organizations, Mike experienced firsthand the tremendous power a determined community of clinicians, executives, technologists, entrepreneurs, academics, and investors could wield when they work together.

Realizing just how much more could be accomplished if that power were harnessed, Mike developed the industry integrator concept, a new feature of the innovation economy that allows the healthcare industry to be integrated at the point of innovation by physically housing an entire ecosystem in a single location.

In partnership with governmental, non-profit, and commercial organizations, Mike and his team built Catalyst, a 180,000 square foot, first-of-its-kind industry integrator, in Denver’s River North District (RiNo) that houses 60+ health-tech startups, academic institutions, healthcare systems, and Fortune 100s alike in the race to fix healthcare. Catalyst opened its doors in July, 2018.

While Mike continues to be a Catalyst Partner/Owner, his efforts are now focused on his role as Chief Community Officer at BurstIQ. BurstIQ is a HIPAA and GDPR compliant platform creating health profiles for people, places and things, and empowers the interactions between them. The blockchain platform enables health applications and services to incorporate complex data ownership, consent, and monetization … at scale.

The BurstIQ team is creating a deeply connected community of health data anchors and innovators to ignite an international revolution by properly securing, controlling, consenting and monetizing health data.
