Cofounder and COO, MyHealthTeams
Mary Ray is dramatically improving the patient experience for the one in two Americans now living with a chronic condition. Mary started MyHealthTeams in 2012 with cofounder Eric Peacock to make it easy for people living with a chronic condition to connect with others facing similar challenges. Now, more than two million registered members rely on MyHealthTeams’ 33 condition-specific social networks for information, resources, life hacks, validation, and emotional support. Mary leads the company’s product, engineering, community, and content teams. With her leadership, the company has accelerated digital, mobile, and social initiatives for more than two dozen biopharma brands and their agencies. These partnerships span research that informs clinical trial design, patient education and patient activation programs that put the right information in front of the right person at the right time, and media solutions that reach diagnosed patients with highly relevant messaging. In addition to her work at MyHealthTeams, Mary is widely recognized for her leadership in building highly engaged products and services with a successful track record as an entrepreneur and consumer technology innovator. She has served as a mentor to up-and-coming women in technology at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and SXSW. She was recently honored as a “Digital Crusader” on the PM360 ELITE 100 list.
