President and CEO, athenahealth
Jonathan Bush is president and CEO of athenahealth, Inc., which he co-founded in 1997 and took public ten years later in the most successful initial public offering that year. In his first book, Where Does it Hurt? An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Fixing Health Care, Bush exposes the underbelly of the sprawling and wasteful healthcare industry and suggests a remedy based on consumer-focused business. Previously, Bush served as an EMT for the city of New Orleans, was trained as a medic in the US Army, and worked as a management consultant in the healthcare practice of Booz Allen Hamilton.
