ZoomCare today announces the addition of leading health care expert Mike Bonetto and top physicians Jim Little, Sheryl Andress, and Derek Norcom. ZoomCare, the creator of Health Care on Demand(TM), offers guaranteed on-time visits with online scheduling and paperless check-in for all your everyday health care, including preventive, primary and urgent care, plus on-site laboratory and dispensing pharmacy in state-of-the art neighborhood clinics, along with the leading array of online support services.

Recruiting a leading health care expert like Mike Bonetto and top family physicians like Drs. Little, Andress and Norcom could be a challenge in today's market, but ZoomCare is a magnet for attracting top talent because of the thought leadership of founders, David Sanders, MD and Albert DiPiero, MD, MPH, and the progressive health care model they are establishing.

"Until now, health care has been full of unpleasant surprises," said David Sanders, MD, co-founder of ZoomCare. "You wait longer than you expect, pay more than you expect, and get less follow through than you deserve. ZoomCare's mission is to make you the star of the show by putting you in control of everything: Pick your appointment time; know your price; partner with your doctor; own your chart; walk out with your prescriptions; receive personalized follow-up; and see results. That's what we call Health Care on Demand. Each of these talented new team members shares this vision. The opening of our second location in the Pearl District in January is an exciting step forward in offering our services more broadly."

Mike Bonetto is one of Oregon's emerging health care leaders. He brings a singular passion for health care reform through innovation in entrepreneurship, community collaboration and bipartisan public policy. Bonetto is a member of the Federal Laws Committee of the Oregon Health Fund Board, chairs the Central Oregon Health Collaborative and the Deschutes County Public Health Advisory Board, is the former Director of the Oregon Health Policy Commission, and was most recently the Senior Vice President of Planning & Development for Clear Choice Health Plans. He received a Ph.D. in health policy from Oregon State University.

Dr. Jim Little, a board-certified family physician since 2001, is a member of the board of directors for the Oregon Academy of Family Physicians and was most recently the medical director for the Family Physicians Group in Vancouver, Washington, a group of thirty-two family physicians. Little graduated from the University of Colorado Medical School and completed his family medicine residency at the Oregon Health Science University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon where he served as chief resident.

Dr. Sheryl Andress is a board-certified family physician who has been in private practice and at Kaiser Medical Foundation in northern California since 1999. Andress graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine and trained at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in San Bernardino, California. Dr. Derek Norcom is a board-certified family physician who has been a partner at the Salem Clinic in Salem, Oregon since 1998. Norcom graduated from University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and trained at Trinity Lutheran Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.
