What if, in the course of taking charge of our own health records, we could also contribute to the greater good? Anil Sethi’s entrepreneurial spirit has led him along a number of highly successful paths that speak to those possibilities, each step increasingly leveraging mobile health technologies as a mechanism to humanize rather than marginalize. Based on personal experience and the conviction that consumer-focused technologies have game-changing regulatory implications for consumer/patient access, Anil’s story is a testament to how the act of placing the person at the center can be a gateway to groundbreaking products that transform both care and culture.
