The 2017 MedTech Boston 40 Under 40 Healthcare Innovators


6. Bradford Diephuis, MD, MBA
Co-Founder of Herald Health

Bradford Diephuis, MD, MBADr. Bradford Diephuis didn’t always think he wanted to be a doctor. After graduating college with degrees in engineering and computer science, Diephuis took his first job at a Wall Street trading firm. It was not until an illness exposed him to healthcare that he realized he wanted to pursue a career as physician. “I found myself equal parts inspired by my caretakers and amazed at how backwards their technology was,” Diephuis observed. “I decided to make a career change and six years later, I graduated from medical school.”

Diephus’s company, Herald Health, was born out of his experience with healthcare as both a patient and a physician. “Clinicians are expected to keep track of an ever-increasing stream of data while caring for patients,” he explains. “This leaves doctors stuck in front of computers, clicking through electronic medical records, away from the patients they serve. We built Herald to change that.” Herald Health works to deliver doctors the data they need on patients when they need it. It monitors EMR’s and allow physicians to spend less time looking at their computers and more time with patients.

In his free time, Diephuis enjoys watching his favorite hockey team, the Boston Bruins, playing board games, and engaging in debates about health care policy.
