Tech Tonics: Dr. Jason Langheier and the Power of Personalization
“If Amazon can personalize book recommendations, if we can get digital prescriptions of drugs nailed down with Walgreens, why can’t the two come together so that physicians can give personalized prescriptions for healthy eating?” wonders Dr. Jason Langheier, the CEO of Zipongo, a San Francisco startup that personalizes actionable daily recommendations for people struggling to live healthier lives.
In college Jason was awarded the Herchel Smith Fellowship for neuroscience research at Cambridge and later he got his MD. And while he hopes to practice as a clinician some day, his focus is to help revolutionize health care with information technologies. “Honestly, after running three companies, I think neurosurgery is easier,” he muses.
We’re pleased to welcome him as this week’s guest on Tech Tonics.
