The following men and women founded or co-founded companies that have made a name for themselves in the healthcare industry. Some entrepreneurs were fueled by their personal experiences in healthcare, whereas others created their companies out of a growing demand for guidance and help. One powerhouse company today was once nothing more than a start-up with three part-time employees.
Each of these healthcare leaders has used his or her unique experiences, insight and knowledge to produce valuable products or services that truly contribute to the goal of healthcare: To provide more effective, affordable medical care to patients.
1. Jonathan Bush, a leader with inextinguishable energy and enthusiasm, is the co-founder and CEO of Watertown, Mass.-based athenahealth and author of the book, 'Where Does it Hurt? An Entrepreneur's Guide to Fixing Healthcare.' Mr. Bush launched athenahealth in 1997 as a network of maternity clinics, but the company was struggling financially because the billing process was extremely slow, according to Inc. magazine. Mr. Bush then decided to hire his co-founder's brother to develop software to speed up the billing process. Today, athenahealth is a leader in the industry selling cloud-based billing and EMR to physician practices and hospitals, and in 2014 the company saw $752.6 million in revenue. Mr. Bush, who invests in startups himself, says he looks for 'mojo' in startup company leaders. In an interview with Inc. magazine, Mr. Bush says a promising startup leader has, 'A sense of opportunity. Inability to give up. Brilliance. And I look for some idealistic visions. For me to get excited, the business has to show a market path toward some social good — something that scrapes a layer of lameness off the world.'
2. Quint Studer is the founder of Pensacola, Fla.-based Studer Group, an outcomes firm that uses Evidenced-Based Leadership systems and practices to help organizations achieve, sustain and accelerate performance in service, quality, finance, people and growth. Mr. Studer has worked in healthcare for more than 29 years. Before entering the healthcare field as a community relations representative in 1984, Mr. Studer spent 10 years as a teacher. Between 1984 and when he founded Studer Group in 2000, he served in various managing roles in several organizations and as president of Baptist Hospital in Pensacola, Fla. Each of these experiences contributed to Mr. Studer's knowledge bank of leadership expertise, and after repeated requests from organizations for help, Studer Group was born. Mr. Studer has established himself as a strong advocate for change and improvement and as a go-to expert for management advice. The Studer Group harvests, tests, refines and shares best practices with healthcare organizations through peer-reviewed journal articles, Studer Group publications and products. Additionally, Mr. Studer has authored six books. In February, Chicago-based Huron Consulting Group acquired Studer Group for $325 million in a deal that promises to extend Huron's expertise in patient satisfaction and hospital-physician relationships. Huron Consulting focuses on financial challenges, healthcare reform implementation, technology and population health management. The combined organization will have more than 1,500 employees.
3. Michael Sachs is the founder and previous CEO of Skokie, Ill.-based Sg2, a healthcare and hospital system intelligence, analytics and consulting company. Before funding Sg2, Mr. Sachs was chairman of Sachs Group, which provided healthcare planning and marketing data to more than 1,000 institutions across the U.S. Mr. Sachs previously worked as a consultant with Ernst & Whinney and AT Kearney and on the management team of Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Mich. In February 2013, Mr. Sachs retired from his role as CEO to focus on traveling and speaking engagements, and Steve Lefar, president of Sg2, took over as CEO, according to Crain's Chicago Business. Mr. Sachs remains with the company as chairman. In August 2014, Sg2 was bought for $142 million by Alpharetta, Ga.-based MedAssets, a medical technology and consulting firm, according to Crain's.
4. Judy Faulkner is the founder and CEO of Verona, Wis.-based Epic Systems, one of the biggest EHR providers for hospitals and health systems in the country. Ms. Faulkner started Epic in 1979 after completing graduate school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she studied computer science. At its start, Epic was comprised of three part-time employees who worked in the basement of an apartment house. Today, Epic has more than 8,000 employees across its 1,000-acre campus that is valued at more than $700 million, according to HIT consultant. According to data from CMS, Epic was the most commonly used EHR among eligible professionals participating in meaningful use as of December 2014. Additionally, Epic was named the top overall physician practice vendor and overall software suite for the 2014 Best in KLAS awards by vendor performance monitor KLAS. Despite the company's prominence, Ms. Faulkner maintains Epic as a marketing-free enterprise. 'When I started the company, I had no idea how to do marketing, so we just didn't do it,' Ms. Faulkner said in an exclusive interview with Becker's Hospital Review. 'What I did know, because I was a technical person, is to be able to write good software. So we focused on writing good software, and we focused on doing good support. And then fortunately, word of mouth did the rest.'
5. David M. Shade is the co-founder, president and CEO of Chicago-based Prism Healthcare Partners, a healthcare consulting firm that helps hospitals assess the best strategic direction and implement performance improvements in the areas of physician operations, clinical transformation, revenue, non-labor cost reductions and workforce management. Earlier in his career, Mr. Shade served as a partner in the healthcare practice at Ernst & Young for 21 years. Before launching Prism Healthcare Partners, Mr. Shade founded Chicago-based Wellspring Partners in 1999 and served as the company's CEO. Wellspring was sold to Huron Consulting in 2007 and Mr. Shade became vice president in charge of healthcare, and subsequently he became the President and COO of the entire company. 'David is a very creative entrepreneur, having started two businesses,' says Chuck Lauer, former publisher of Modern Healthcare. 'Wellspring was very successful, then after selling off the company and leading Huron, he starts all over with Prism and does it again. It's unusual in this industry to see someone who can do this. Today, Prism is inundated with all kinds of business.' According to Mr. Lauer, Mr. Shade's marketing strategy mostly consists of advertising, and this has contributed to Prism's success. Additionally, many of Prism's consultants have experience or working knowledge in the departments they are called in to help, Mr. Lauer notes.
6. Randall Lipps is the founder of Mountain View, Calif.-based Omnicell, a company that provides technologically advanced automation that enables healthcare facilities to acquire, manage, dispense and deliver medications and supplies more effectively. Mr. Lipps founded Omnicell in 1992 after observing the inefficiencies of hospital management when his daughter was hospitalized at birth. Mr. Lipps believed better management of supplies and medications would improve a hospital's standard of care by allowing clinicians to spend more time caring for their patients. He has been chairman of the board of directors since that time, and in 2002, he added on the roles of president and CEO. As the company's leader, Mr. Lipps has guided Omnicell toward expansion and growth. In February, Omnicell signed an agreement to purchase Bochum, Germany-based MACH4 Pharma Systems. The acquisition will create a comprehensive automated medication management offering for hospitals and retail pharmacies throughout Europe and other emerging international markets.
7. Delos 'Toby' Cosgrove, MD, has worked for the world-renown, $6.5 billion Cleveland Clinic for 40 years and has led the system as president and CEO for more than 10. Dr. Cosgrove was also a surgeon in the U.S. Air Force, serving as chief of U.S. Air Force Casualty Staging flight in Da Nang, Republic of Vietnam. Even before his CEO appointment, Dr. Cosgrove was a leader and innovator at Cleveland Clinic. He was the first to perform a minimally invasive mitral valve surgery in 1996, a practice that is widely used today. Dr. Cosgrove helped set up Cleveland Clinic Innovations, the technology transfer and commercialization arm of the system, which has enabled nearly 60 offshoot companies to develop. NASA is one of Cleveland Clinic's most recent partners under the innovation arm. Under his direction, Cleveland Clinic has expanded across the U.S. and abroad — Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates expects to see its first patients later this year. Dr. Cosgrove has spearheaded several initiatives that have propelled the Clinic to its current level of prominence, including the Clinic's same-day appointment promise, the country's first tuition-free medical center and the construction of the first-of-its kind Global Center for Health Innovation, a hospital supply showroom attached to the Cleveland Convention Center. In 2014, President Barack Obama offered Dr. Cosgrove the position of Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, which Dr. Cosgrove declined.
8. Bill McGuire, MD, who served as CEO of UnitedHealth Group from 1991 to 2006, has garnered the most media attention over the last several years for his compensation. According to the Wall Street Journal's July 2010 list of 'The Decade's 25 Top Earners,' Dr. McGuire earned $469.3 million in total realized compensation from 2000 to 2010. It later turned out that a significant amount of Dr. McGuire's compensation came from back-dated stock options, a discovery that led to his resignation, according toHealth Care Renewal. (Dr. McGuire agreed to forfeit $418 million to settle the claims against him, according to the New York Times.) However, since then, Dr. McGuire has made a new name for himself and has invested in several different ventures. In early 2013, he purchased Minnesota's professional soccer team, Minnesota United FC, after which he completely rebranded it and rebuilt its business operations. Just four months after purchasing the team, United had more than 60 employees, double the amount at the time of the sale. The club also upgraded to a new, 2,400-square-foot office in Golden Valley. Dr. McGuire also joined the board of directors of Rebiotix, a biotechnology and fecal transplant company based in Roseville, Minn., in 2013. In September of 2013, Dr. McGuire effectively bought his entire neighborhood. Since purchasing his Orono, Minn., residence in 1997 for around $2.7 million, Dr. McGuire spent approximately $17 million in eight transactions to acquire the adjacent properties, ultimately garnering him 30 acres. While he decline to comment on his intentions, local real estate agents suggest he was investing in valuable land during a time the real estate market had bottomed out.
9. George C. Halvorson served as chairman and CEO of Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente, from 2002 through 2013. Kaiser is the nation's largest nonprofit health plan and hospital system, serving more than 9 million members and generating roughly $50 billion in annual revenue. Mr. Halvorson, a strong proponent of health IT, led the completion of the system's multi-year rollout of the KP HealthConnect EMR system — based on software from Epic — in 2010. Under Mr. Halvorson's leadership, Kaiser also became a leader in electronic connectivity between physicians and patients, with more than 12 million annual 'e-visits' in place of in-office clinical visits, and more than 100 million lab reports, test results and care updates digitally sent to patients by their Kaiser providers as of April 2014. Mr. Halvorson has been the recipient of several major honors, including the 2013 HISTalk Health Care IT Lifetime Achievement Award and America's Health Insurance Plans Inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award, among others. Mr. Halvorson has established himself as a prominent voice in the healthcare reform conversation, and has authored five healthcare reform guidebooks. In 2012, he published 'KP Inside: 101 Letters to Us at Kaiser Permanente,' a compilation of letters he wrote to Kaiser Permanente employees each week since September 2007. He's also served as an advisor to the governments of Uganda, Great Britain, Jamaica and Russia on issues such as health policy and financing.

Becker is an American sitcom television series that originally aired on CBS from November 2, 1998 to January 28, 2004, broadcasting 129 episodes. Set in the New York City borough of the Bronx, the show starred Ted Danson as John Becker, a cantankerous doctor who operates a small practice and is constantly annoyed by his patients, co-workers, and friends, and practically everything and everybody else in his world. Despite everything, his patients and friends are loyal because Becker genuinely cares about them. The series was produced by Dave Hackel Productions and Industry Entertainment, in association with Paramount Network Television.
The show revolved around Becker and the things that annoyed him, although the members of the supporting cast also had their moments. The relationships between Becker and Reggie (later, Chris) formed the key plots of many episodes. The show tackled more serious issues as well, such as race, homosexuality, transgenderism, addiction, nymphomania, schizophrenia, cerebral AVM, and political correctness.

Cast and characters
- Ted Danson as Dr. John Becker: A Harvard Medical School graduate who runs a neighborhood medical practice. He is frequently annoyed by things such as a flickering street lamp, noisy neighbors and rubbish on TV. Becker is pessimistic and superstitious, believing that just about everything brings him bad luck. Always trying to quit smoking, Becker hides a packet of cigarettes in the cash register of the diner where he hangs out to control his intake and keep his habit from Margaret. An atheist, because he can't accept a God who lets bad things happen, he does not rule out the possibility that God is torturing him for his nonbelief. He has been divorced twice and is very stingy. Becker is politically left (especially in later seasons), though he hates political correctness. Despite his gruff nature, Becker exhibits moments of kindness and shows the utmost professionalism in dealing with his patients, accepting gifts from those who can't pay. Initially, the reason why he is working in a run-down neighborhood of the Bronx is a sore point, though he later says he turned down a research job at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore because the neighborhood is where he's most needed. Danson, whose hair had gone completely white, dyed his hair brown to more closely resemble his appearance as Sam Malone on Cheers, but with a very different, less charismatic style.
- Hattie Winston as Margaret Wyborn: Becker’s nurse and office manager, and one of the few people who can tolerate Becker. Margaret is a motherly figure to Becker and Linda. She is married, at best rockily, to the often mentioned but never-seen 'Lewis', who hates Becker (and vice versa). She once thought about becoming a singer instead of a nurse. Margaret is a Christian, specifically a Baptist, and often quotes the Bible. Margaret is generally the most level-headed character and acts as the voice of reason. She also appears to have liberal views; in one episode, she is asked what Florida is known for, and sarcastically answers “not counting votes?”, and once chastised Becker for what she perceived as homophobic behavior. She is also shown to be quite stubborn, a prime example being getting her job by not leaving till Becker hired her.
- Shawnee Smith as Linda: A flighty, uneducated young woman who works as Margaret's aide in Becker's office. Becker explains her presence there by saying that he owed her father a favor. Although often inconsiderate and slow on the uptake, Linda sees events from a unique perspective which can be helpful. Although she has a strained relationship with her alcoholic mother, her wealthy parents bought her a luxury penthouse. In season two, she invites Bob to live with her after he becomes homeless and is too polite to kick him out. Linda is popular with some of the patients, due to her skimpy outfits and bubbly personality. She is good with kids and helps Becker out when they need shots. She is always deferential and calls Becker 'Doctor' no matter where she is, and stuck up for him after a 'sex talk' he gave to a school class didn't go down well. She has a soft spot for small animals and loves to go shopping, clubbing, and dating. She has an on-again/off-again ex-boyfriend Gil. She speaks Portuguese and learned some Mandarin from an ex-boyfriend, which proves useful when dealing with patients.
- Alex Désert as Jake Malinak: Becker's best friend, who runs the newsstand in the diner. Jake lost his sight in a car accident several years prior. He was close to one of his grandmothers who raised him before she died. Jake married a woman called Amanda (played by Lindsay Price), 24 hours after they met. They had the marriage annulled but lived together for some time until Amanda left, taking all his possessions with her. Jake competed three times in the National Scrabble Championship, winning once. In the final episode, Jake decides to spend an inheritance on a college education. He enrolls to study in Chicago, where he can stay with a relative who teaches on campus.
- Terry Farrell as Regina 'Reggie' Kostas (seasons 1–4): The owner and operator of the diner where Becker hangs out. A former model, she moved back home after her career had stalled and her father fell ill. She inherited the diner, along with its grumpy customer Becker, and continues to run it despite all of the complaints about her cooking and her dissatisfaction with her situation. Reggie gets an 'A' in psychology, then has a panic attack thinking about her future after everybody jokes about the uselessness of the degree. Reggie has a love-hate relationship with Becker. At the end of the fourth season, she becomes jealous of all the attention Becker is paying to Chris and kisses Becker. However, as the actress playing Reggie was let go after season 4, in the fifth season's premiere ('Someone's In The Kitchen with Reggie?'), it's explained that Reggie and Becker had slept together, but then Reggie regretted throwing herself at him, regarding it as hitting rock bottom. She rings the bar, and leaves a message with a customer for Jake, explaining that she has gone to Europe with some friends from modelling and is reassessing her life and career.
- Saverio Guerra as Bob (recurring, seasons 1–2; main, seasons 3–5): Bob is an old high school classmate of Reggie's who is short, hyperactive, and annoying. In his earlier appearances, a running gag involved Bob frequently referring to himself in the third person but this is gradually toned down as the show progressed. Bob largely serves as the larger-than-life running gag of the series, bringing levity to many of the serious issues encountered. Bob is a sex addict, who initially continually hits on Reggie, who ignored him in high school, despite being married and Reggie making it abundantly clear that she still detests him. In season two, Bob becomes homeless after his wife cleans him out in a divorce. Linda kindly invites him to stay at her place but is soon trying to find him a job so she can get rid of him. He became a regular character for seasons 3–5 and worked as the lazy superintendent of Becker's building. Bob's middle name is Benito but his surname is never given. One of his few talents is that he is an excellent cook. Guerra did not renew his contract for the shortened season 6. Bob's absence is explained by his going on vacation and he is never mentioned again.
- Nancy Travis as Christine 'Chris' Connor (guest, season 4; main, seasons 5–6): Becker's new neighbor who moves to the Bronx after traveling the world. Chris, was originally supposed to be in the show for only four episodes, joined the show at the end of Season 4 and became a regular cast member in Season 5. Chris takes over the diner and begins a love-hate relationship with Becker. She is his total opposite – always nice and cheerful, but they eventually get together by the end of the series. Travis had previously worked with Danson in Three Men and a Baby and Three Men and a Little Lady.
- Jorge Garcia as Hector Lopez (season 6): The little brother of one of Jake's childhood friends. Jake said that Hector would do anything to make money, including selling his parents' condoms, to which he responded, 'Hey, those weren't scams, they were business ventures. Besides I got a baby sister out of it.' He was a cast member only during the sixth season, serving as a replacement of sorts for Bob. In the last episode, Hector takes over control of the newsstand after Jake announces he will be moving to Chicago for college.
Terry Farrell's departure

Terry Farrell was written out of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (where she played Jadzia Dax) after her contract expired without renegotiation. Soon after, Farrell got the role of Reggie. According to Farrell, the original plan was for Reggie and Becker to have a relationship with romantic tension over the course of the show; the show's ending would be them going on their first date. However, the producers became worried that this would be compared to Sam and Diane's relationship on Cheers, so they backed away from it.
At the end of season four, Nancy Travis was introduced for a short arc playing Chris, Becker's new neighbor. Chris was a cheerful and optimistic character, the opposite of Becker, and would serve as a rival for Reggie. The season ended with a cliffhanger as Reggie kissed Becker and then left. However, Farrell was dropped at the end of season four, which came as a shock to her. Creator and EP David Hackel and Farrell have both stated that it had nothing to do with Farrell supporting the cast in claims for a promised pay raise after season three. Hackel said that Chris and Becker's relationship would 'shake things up a bit,' which the network wanted, and that, instead of having Reggie do the usual thing and return to patch things up, she would just decide to leave.
The show was offered in syndication between 2003 and 2004, after its network run on CBS ended. In the U.S., the show aired on WGN America until 2010. ReelzChannel added the show in fall 2010. From January 2017 it is on Antenna TV.
In Australia, Becker was originally broadcast on Network Ten. Reruns of the series have been aired weekdays on Foxtel's pay TV network 111 funny and Network Ten's digital channel 10 Peach.
CBS DVD (distributed by Paramount) has released all six seasons of Becker on DVD in Region 1. Season 4-6 are Manufacture-on-Demand (MOD) releases, available exclusively via Amazon.com's CreateSpace program.
On June 6, 2017, CBS DVD released Becker: The Complete Series on DVD in Region 1.
In Region 2, Paramount Home Entertainment released the first season on DVD on April 28, 2008. There were issues with the discs that meant audio and video were out of sync.
In Region 4, Paramount Home Entertainment released the first three seasons on DVD in 2008/2009. In 2013, Umbrella Entertainment acquired the rights to the series and subsequently re-released the first three seasons. Season 4 was released on February 5, 2014. Season 5 and 6 were released in August 2016.

Becker debuted as part of CBS' highly rated Monday night lineup as a midseason replacement for the cancelled sitcom The Brian Benben Show, taking over the timeslot at 9:30 PM Eastern time. The show performed well for its first four seasons, piggybacking off the ratings of its lead-in, Everybody Loves Raymond; in its first four seasons, Becker ranked in the top 20 and peaked at #13.
Despite the ratings wins they were getting with the series, CBS decided to try to find a new home for Becker and relocated the sitcom to lead off its Sunday night lineup. The ratings unexpectedly tanked as Becker fell out of the top 50 in the ratings and CBS was set to cancel the series. The network relented and gave Becker a sixth and last season, but was only willing to order thirteen episodes and intended to air it as a midseason replacement. Once again the network changed its mind and the last season launched in the fall. Moving to Wednesday nights and airing in tandem with former Monday staple The King of Queens, Becker aired its 129th and last episode on January 28, 2004.
