"I am honored to join the esteemed company of EY Entrepreneurs as a finalist, and proud to be recognized for my role in creating ZoomCare, an innovative, on-demand model that radically changes how people get all their healthcare needs with the security of healthcare built-in. "
ZoomCare, the Portland-based innovator of On-Demand healthcare, is creating the nation's first health insurance system built from the ground up to enhance human performance. By seamlessly combining the security of traditional health insurance with membership-based brain, cellular and strength/stamina training and coaching, ZOOM+ Personal Health Insurance is empowering people to reach their full potential. Co-founded in 2006 in Portland, Oregon, by healthcare entrepreneurs David Sanders, M.D., and Albert DiPiero, M.D., ZoomCare was built on the promise of delivering "Twice the Health At Half the Cost With Ten Times the Delight." ZoomCare is a privately held company currently operating 26 neighborhood clinics in Portland, Vancouver and Seattle.
ZoomCare has been responsible for many retail healthcare firsts. The company built the first mobile online scheduler with same-day access to over 500 no-wait appointments; created the innovative neighborhood retail clinic format; invented the "Magic Minute" and "Painless Procedure"; helped pass legislation allowing clinics to provide prescription medications; published transparent prices on the website; offered convenient office hours 365 days a year, in some cases until midnight.
Now in its 29th year, the program has expanded to recognize business leaders in more than 145 cities in more than 60 countries throughout the world.
Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 14, 2015.
