Ryan has led efforts in the health information technology sector, in policy change, as well with consumer/patient engagement and patient advocacy.  Ryan joined Yuri Milner and Y Combinator funded electronic health record company drchrono as an early employee, where he trained over 130 practices on the software, worked with engineers, providers, and staff members to build new features, and managed Meaningful Use attestations at the company.

Prior to drchrono, Ryan founded and managed non-profit Innovation and Choice for three years, wherein the team worked on decreasing the diffusion time of innovation in medicine and healthcare. Before the nonprofit, Ryan engaged with U.S. Congressional leaders to enact changes to FDA regulation. Over his years in the industry, Ryan has worked in partnership with patients, physicians, diagnostic makers, payers, pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies, academics, federal regulators, and elected federal representatives to improve patient care.

When Ryan isn’t working (a rarity), you can find him watching or playing sports — where he is a 3-time fantasy baseball champion, 2-time fantasy basketball champion, and enjoys running and playing basketball and baseball. He lives in Mountain View, California, and grew up in the San Fernando Valley.

Ryan has a B.A. in Business Economics and minor in Biology from the University of California, Irvine, where he graduated in three-years with 8 A+s.

My Guiding Star

  1. Help others
  2. Make an impact (right now, my focus is in healthcare at a policy and point-of-care level)
  3. Strategically position myself by strengthening my principles and building strong relationships
  4. Be there for my friends and family
  5. Enjoy the ride
