Portland, OR – May 6, 2016 – Capsci Health created a new advisory board and announced that Dawn Bonder, Rael Dornfest, Dr. James Tuchschmidt and Paul Ford have agreed to serve as advisors. The appointees represent vastly different backgrounds and skillsets, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of healthcare technology innovation.

Dawn Bonder’s background is in healthcare policy. She is CEO of Health Republic Insurance Company, a non-profit health insurer.

Rael Dornfest is a technologist known for his ability to scale software platforms so they can support millions of users. Rael sold his company to Twitter in 2008.

Dr. James Tuchscmidt devoted decades of his career to the VA medical system pioneering the use of innovative programs to update VA technology, rising to the position of Acting Principal Deputy Undersecretary – second in command of the world’s largest medical system.

Paul Ford focuses on reducing medical losses and assisting healthcare stakeholders– patients, providers and purchasers – in determining the actual costs of delivering care. He is currently working with a new start-up venture in the pharmacy benefit management space.

“High quality, cost-effective healthcare requires a wide-range of skills and expertise which traditionally work within their own silos,,” said Chris Logan, CEO of Capsci Health. “It’s exciting for us to bring these essential perspectives together to enable us to fully appreciate the complexity of each and every aspect of healthcare from the medical to the financial.”
