Event description
Nuna's co-founder and Chief Data Officer joins us at our next Tales from the Trenches™.

About this Event

Join us at our next Tales from the Trenches™ to hear stories and insights from David Chen: a former Netflix data scientist whose passion for improving healthcare led him to found the healthcare technology company Nuna in 2010.

David founded Nuna with his friend and fellow data enthusiast, Jini Kim, whose personal experience navigating disparate data sources and inconsistent treatment within the Medicaid system served as the cornerstone for the company’s founding thesis: That it’s possible to make healthcare broadly accessible and of high value by working with data on a flexible, integrated and accessible platform. In 2017, the company announced an initiative to partner with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to congregate the data of 74.5 million people across the U.S. — creating the first comprehensive data platform in Medicaid’s history.

Since its inception, Nuna has raised over $90 million in funding from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and John Doerr. The company also collaborates with health plans like Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina to facilitate the adoption of value-based care practices and improve quality and affordability of care for plan members.

Agenda:

5:30–6:00 | Networking

6:00–7:00 | Program (Livestream available)

Tales from the Trenches is produced in partnership with Paragon Biosciences and Jumpstart Ventures.
