Carlos Rodarte credits his mom for his success – he says she made sure that he surrounded himself with good people growing up because of her deep belief that people are influenced by the company they keep. Rodarte currently works in business development at PatientsLikeMe where he is surrounded by an incredible team driven by a powerful mission – just like his mom wanted. He and his team are working to understand how patient experience can impact and improve health outcomes.
Rodarte predicts big changes in our healthcare future. “Care will become more remote and decentralized, which will cause our interactions with the system to increase in frequency but reside away from traditional care environments,” he says.
As a child, Rodarte wanted to be a pizza chef (because of his love for pizza) or an engineer (because of his love for legos) – the common thread there being immersing in the things he loved. Today, his love is in exploring how novel technologies can help us understand more about biology.
