William King named 2018 Healthcare Transformer by MM&M
A journey from connecting data to connecting pharmaceutical companies with physicians and patients
Zephyr Health is bridging the gap between healthcare and technology with its unique solution Zephyr Illuminate™, that organizes and visualizes global health data to help Life Sciences companies better connect their therapies to people in need. Now, William King, Zephyr Health Founder and Executive Chairman, has been honored by MM&M as a 2018 Healthcare Transformer – a role he’s been preparing for his entire life.
King has had a passion for healthcare from a young age; he grew up with a sibling diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, and later started his career carrying a bag for Johnson & Johnson. King was bewildered by the staggering amount of data pharma companies were purchasing and producing – it was clear this data was critical to decision-making, but it was also clear that it was costing the company an immense amount of time, people, and money to make sense of it and apply it toward better business decisions.
King led the charge to change when he founded Zephyr Health, the leading Insights-as-a-Service company that is revolutionizing commercial analytics for the Life Sciences industry. Zephyr Health turns data into insights so that Biopharma, Medical Device and Diagnostic companies can make confident decisions faster in order to reach and engage the right care providers at the right time. Zephyr Illuminate is the only cloud-based enterprise solution that combines connected global health data with machine-learning based capabilities, delivering faster time to insights. Zephyr Illuminate makes it easier for business leaders to make data and market-driven decisions with speed and assurance.
